Fivecast has achieved tremendous growth over the last three years, culminating in the number one ranking in the SA Fast Movers awards for 2022, with a focus on helping their customers address the world’s biggest challenges through technological innovations.
Fivecast provides AI-powered open-source intelligence solutions that assist customers in law enforcement, national security, defence, and corporate security in collecting, filtering, and analysing massive amounts of data from the surface, deep, and dark web to uncover insights for use cases ranging from counter-terrorism to human trafficking, fraud detection, and transnational crime.
The Fast Movers SA programme, delivered by accounting firm BDO, recognises South Australia’s fastest growing, most innovative, and arguably smartest small to medium enterprises. Companies were evaluated based on key performance indicators such as 3-year average revenue growth, with Fivecast achieving a staggering 250 percent average revenue growth. Furthermore, Fivecast received the highest employment growth award, with 147 percent average employee growth between 2019 and 2022.
Dr. Brenton Cooper, CEO and co-founder of Fivecast, received the award last week at the Adelaide Oval during a breakfast attended by business and government leaders, including new South Australian Premier, Mr. Peter Malinauskas.
Dr. Brenton Cooper expressed his thoughts on the award. “Our mission at Fivecast is to enable a safer world. This award is testament to the power that digital intelligence technology brings to our customers across missions ranging from countering terrorism, monitoring extremism, understanding online influence, and fighting financial crime. Thank-you to our customers and partners that have joined us on the journey so far. With their support, Fivecast has developed a robust and sustainable business and achieved high levels of revenue growth.”
While Fivecast is based in South Australia, they have established and are expanding operations in the United States and the United Kingdom, and their customers include both federal and state government agencies as well as private organisations.
