“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.
