Strawhouse announced in November that it has ranked 112th on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in North America. Strawhouse’s revenues grew 1125% during this period.
 
Strawhouse’s Co-Founder, Jason Kryski, credits the company’s growth to a culture of data-driven iteration, ruthless prioritization of resources, and significant tolerance for risk.
 
“We've pioneered a highly disruptive model to grow digitally native brands,” he said. “Our model maximizes value and growth for our partners without the waste that is a mainstay of traditional ad agencies, and without the dilution of the traditional venture capital model."
 
“Congratulations to the Deloitte 2018 Technology Fast 500 winners on this impressive achievement,” said Sandra Shirai, vice chairman, Deloitte LLP, and U.S. technology, media and telecommunications leader. “These companies are innovators who have converted their disruptive ideas into products, services and experiences that can captivate new customers and drive remarkable growth.”
