The US Pan Asian American Chamber of Commerce Education Foundation (USPAACC) today announced that its Fast 100 Asian American Business Award program is now open and encouraged qualifying businesses to either be nominated or apply for the prestigious national recognition.
USPAACC’s Fast 100 Asian American Business Award program recognizes America’s fastest-growing Asian American businesses. The USPAACC-sponsored competition is based on the percentage growth of annual revenue for Asian American businesses with this year’s award focused on the top 100 such businesses throughout America.
Collectively, winners of the Fast 100 Asian American Business Award generate revenues over $1 billion and feature nearly every major business sector in the U.S. including IT; hospitality; manufacturing; professional services; staffing; accounting; advertising; marketing; automotive; engineering; facility services; finance; insurance; food and beverage; healthcare; import and export; legal services; logistics; management consulting; real estate; telecommunications, and transportation. CEOs have noted that USPAACC’s Fast 100 Asian American Business Award program is a great opportunity to meet people equally motivated to achieve.
To qualify for USPAACC’s Fast 100 Asian American Business Award program, at least 51 percent of the applying business must be owned and managed by Asian Americans (U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents) and earn at least $1 million in gross annual revenue. Award selections are determined based on the nominee’s gross revenue percentage growth rate from the past two years. Two groups are considered: product-focused companies and service-focused companies. A nominee will compete in the group based on its business focus (product or service).
USPAACC’s Fast 100 Asian American Business Award program 2023 nomination period is open until Tuesday, March 14, 2023.

“Our Fast 100 Asian American Business Award program shines a powerful spotlight on the outstanding achievements of Asian American-owned businesses – the fastest of the fast – whose growth and gains, dedication and desire, innovation and ingenuity are engines powering America’s economy. We proudly salute and celebrate these fast-growing difference makers, risk takers, and boundary breakers whose successes and achievements inspire us all,” said USPAACC National President and CEO Susan Au Allen.
“Being a Fast Award winner basically benchmarks us in the industry against some of the other firms out there, it gives us a good sense of where we really stand in the marketplace, so it makes us immensely proud to be a winner. Having founded this firm just about four years ago and to become a Fast firm for the first time, that means a lot,” said Dimiour President and CEO Sidd Ahmed. Dimiour is the leading provider of mobility and digital technology solutions globally in the automotive, manufacturing, energy, utilities, and healthcare industries, and was a USPAACC Fast Award winner in 2022.
