SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--InstaMortgage, a tech-driven mortgage lender licensed in 26 states, today announced it ranked 110 on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, fintech, and energy tech companies in North America, now in its 27th year.
Technology Fast 500™ award winners must own proprietary intellectual property or technology that is sold to customers in products that contribute to a majority of the company’s operating revenues. Companies are selected based on percentage fiscal year revenue growth from 2017 to 2020. InstaMortgage grew by 1,331% during that period. InstaMorgage was the only mortgage company named to the list and earned a place above household names such as Zoom, Square, Pinterest and Etsy.
For this award and the rapid growth, Shashank Shekhar, chief executive officer of InstaMortgage, credits his team and the company’s three pillars of focus - People, Culture, and Technology. He said, “This dramatic growth has been built on the culture of legendary customer service and unrelenting focus on education. We are in the customer service and education business, we just happen to do mortgages.”
InstaMortgage has grown rapidly by taking a tech-first approach and challenging the status quo across all facets of the business. Earlier this year, the company was named to the prestigious Inc 500 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. InstaMortgage was also named #1 on the list of fastest-growing private companies in Silicon Valley by Silicon Valley Business Journal publication.
“Each year the Technology Fast 500 shines a light on leading innovators in technology and this year is no exception,” said Paul Silverglate, vice-chair, Deloitte LLP, and U.S. technology sector leader.
“These companies are not only at the cutting edge, transforming the way we do business, but most importantly, recognize the strategic importance of ongoing innovation, especially in the ever-changing world of technology,” said Christie Simons, partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP and industry leader for technology, media, and telecommunications within Deloitte’s audit & assurance practice.
