Securing awards has become somewhat of an art form for Maven Wave, the technology consulting firm and Google Cloud Premier Partner that enables digital transformation for enterprises.

For the fifth year in a row, Maven Wave has been named one of the top 50 fastest growing companies in Chicago by Crain’s Chicago Business. Landing #42 on the list, Maven Wave’s revenue grew 312% for the period evaluated by Crain’s, reaching $50 million for 2017. 

The company’s growth has been fueled by the following key factors:

  • The rapid adoption of cloud computing by the world’s largest corporations
  • The strategic use of big data across the whole value chain
  • The unique insight gained from sophisticated machine learning models
  • The company’s deep relationship with Google and other partners


“It’s been a wild ride with exciting growth for 5 years in a row. We’re grateful to Crain’s Chicago Business for the honor, to our growing team of consultants who make us proud every day, and to Google for its commitment to our critical partnership,” said Brian Farrar, Partner & Co-Founder of Maven Wave. “We are thrilled to be included alongside the remarkable and innovative companies on this list who are building the new economy here in Chicago.”
