Appen was named a finalist in the technology category of the 2014 Australian Growth Company of the Year Awards held October 16, 2014. Fellow category finalists were Health.com.au Pty Ltd, AussieCommerce Group, and Redbubble Pty Ltd. The submissions were assessed by an independent judging panel and the awards recognise the achievements of the country's fastest growing businesses in the mid-market. Head of the Corporate Group at Sparke Helmore, Nick Humphrey, said: 'I was impressed by the quality of the submissions this year. They definitely show that Australian businesses in the mid-market space are growing, innovative and sustainable. It was very hard for the judging panel to decide the finalists, who are fantastic examples of the qualities these awards celebrate. We congratulate the finalists and wish them the best of luck for the awards night.'
