Marcum LLP and Connecticut Technology Council Announce 2017 Marcum Tech Top 40 Winners; Stamford’s MediaCrossing, Inc. Named Connecticut’s Fastest Growing Technology Company

Hartford, CT – The Connecticut Technology Council (CTC) and Marcum LLP tonight announced the winners of the 2017 Marcum Tech Top 40, the tenth annual awards program from CTC recognizing the fastest growing technology companies in Connecticut. Results were unveiled at an awards reception at the Toyota Oakdale Theater in Wallingford.

The fastest-growing technology company in Connecticut and the 10th anniversary Marcum Tech Top 40 winner is MediaCrossing, Inc. Founded in 2012, MediaCrossing is a digital marketing company that is dedicated to mid-sized companies seeking new audiences across all channels. Since its founding, MediaCrossing has grown 2107%. In 2016, MediaCrossing was awarded the Marcum Tech Top 40 Accelerator Award, a category set aside for companies that have experienced significant growth in revenue, but lack three years of financial records.

2017 category winners are:

  • Revolution Lighting, Stamford (Advanced Manufacturing)
  • Alexion Pharmeceuticals, New Haven (Life Sciences)
  • ESCOWare, Newtown (Software)
  • TRC, Windsor (Energy, Environmental, and Green Technologies)
  • MResult Corp., Mystic (IT Services)
  • MediaCrossing, Inc., Stamford (New Media, Internet, and Telecommunications)
  • Arccos Golf, Inc., New Haven (Accelerator Awardee)


The Marcum Tech Top 40, celebrating its tenth anniversary, recognizes technology companies with at least $3 million in annual revenue and a four-year record of growth, in six industry sectors. Both privately held and publicly traded companies are eligible.

“Marcum Tech Top 40 companies and winners are exemplars of overcoming any number of obstacles in business, including capital-raising, complex revenue reporting, intellectual property management, international expansion and other challenges. The tenth anniversary class of Marcum Tech Top 40 companies are best-in-class by all of these measures and more,” said Michael K. Brooder, CPA, managing partner of Marcum’s Hartford, Connecticut, office.

Bruce Carlson, CTC’s President & CEO, said, “The Marcum Tech Top 40 reminds us each year that technology companies are thriving in Connecticut. We need to support these companies and the others that are in a growth mode for Connecticut to achieve the job creation and economic growth we are all striving for. The Connecticut Technology Council will continue to be an advocate for the public policies and best practices that support the state’s technology sector.”
