Deloitte Canada has announced this year’s winners of the Technology Fast 50, Companies-to-Watch, and Enterprise Fast 15 awards, recognizing the world-class achievements of the best in tech companies across Canada for the 25th year.
The program reaches a milestone this year, celebrating 25 years of recognizing Canadian technology companies’ achievements, outstanding innovation, leadership, and growth.
The list unveiled today highlights those who have shown true resilience, commitment to innovation, leadership, and rapid revenue growth between 2018 and 2021.
Founded in 2016 and acquired by WonderFi earlier this year, Bitbuy has grown to become one of North America’s leading crypto marketplaces with over 375,000 users accounting for more than $4.4 billion in transactions.
Three fintech startups from Toronto – CapIntel (2,051%), Irwin (823%), and SAVVYY (654%) – received a Companies-to-Watch award as part of this year’s program, a category that highlights emerging Canadian tech companies that exhibit strong growth and show potential to be a future candidate of the Technology Fast 50 ranking.
Since launching its platform in 2019, B2B fintech startup CapIntel has experienced 2,051% revenue growth, placing it at #5 in the category. CapIntel Founder and CEO, James Rockwood, credits the company’s early stage success to the relentless commitment to propelling the wealth management industry into the digital age.
“Digital innovation in wealth management has been long overdue. This award recognizes our growing leadership in the space and reinforces the value of our work in leveraging intuitive technology to support advisor expertise, and elevating the experience for all. We’re thrilled that Deloitte has recognized our impact and growing potential as we look forward to helping more advisors build trust and improve investment outcomes for their clients,” Rockwood commented.
Additionally, two more established fintechs – Vancouver’s Trulioo and Montreal’s Lightspeed – received an Enterprise Fast 15 award, a leadership category open to companies that recorded a minimum revenue of $10 million in 2019 and a minimum revenue of $25 million in 2022.
