Deloitte have recently released their top five winners in its 2017 Technology Fast 500 list. Two biopharmaceutical companies feature in the top 10, both which have displayed technological innovation, entrepreneurship and rapid growth throughout the year.

Located in the US, we take a brief look at the two companies.

1. Aratana Therapeutics Inc: Leawood, Kansas

Approved by the FDA in 2016, with $100mn invested in innovating pet therapies for six years, Aratana Therapeutics has become a leader in the development, licensing and commercialising of therapeutics for common domestic pets since 2010.

Focusing in areas of pain, inappetence, cancer, viral diseases and allergies, the company’s recent third quarter figures highlight a total net revenue of $6.2mn and a net loss of $8.9mn. However, the launch of three products, Nocita, Galliprant and Entyce will enable it to further develop partnerships with veterinary clinics and cater towards a significant gap in the market.
