"We are honored to be listed for the third consecutive year on the Tech Top 40," said Steve LaBella, iSend president and CEO. "Connecticut is an exceptional state for business, as evidenced by the many outstanding companies that make the list each year."

This year's Marcum Tech Top 40 identified the fastest growing Connecticut companies in the categories of Advanced Manufacturing, Energy/Environment/Green Technology, IT Services, Life Sciences, New Media/Internet/Telecom and Software.

"Technology companies have a set of shared challenges that range from capital-raising and complex revenue reporting to intellectual property management and international expansion. Whether they are private enterprises or Fortune 500 companies, this year's Marcum Tech Top 40 winners all demonstrate management excellence and market foresight," said Alex Discepolo, a Tax Partner in Marcum's New Haven office and Practice Leader of the Firm's High Technology Services Group.
