Sept. 4, 2019 (Saskatoon, CANADA) – Vendasta is proud to be named among the CIX Top 10 Growth companies.

The Canadian Innovation Exchange (CIX) delivered its ‘Top 20 Early’ and ‘Top 10 Growth’ lists on BNN Bloomberg Wednesday morning. Companies are chosen by a selection committee of technology industry experts and investors from across Canada.

This is the second consecutive year Vendasta has been honored by CIX, having been named among the CIX Top 20 in 2018. It’s the first year that the Canadian Innovation Exchange has curated two programs: the CIX Top 20 Early, for companies with net revenue less than $5 million CAD or who have raised less than $10 million, and the CIX Top 10 Growth program for late stage companies.

“The CIX brings together some of the most passionate and driven people in Canadian technology and it is an honor for Vendasta to be recognized,” said Vendasta CEO Brendan King. “Very few Canadian technology companies are reaching the ‘scaling’ stage, and it’s fantastic to see CIX recognizing companies that are reaching this milestone.”

The list of companies honored in the CIX Top 10 Growth program are:

– AlayaCare, Montreal
– ApplyBoard, Kitchener
– Bold Commerce, Winnipeg
– Flybits, Toronto
– League, Toronto
– Platterz Inc, Toronto
– Q4 Inc., Toronto
– Sensibill, Toronto
– TouchBistro, Toronto
– Vendasta, Saskatoon

CIX Canadian Innovation Exchange said 433 profiles were submitted for consideration from across Canada. Companies were chosen based on a number of key factors, including product/service offering, depth of management, market opportunity, and business model.

“Expanding to include a dedicated Growth-stage category allows us to identify and showcase more great Canadian companies and attract new stages of investors and sources of capital to CIX,” said Lauren Linton, Executive Director of CIX. “This year’s cohort of early and growth-stage companies is very impressive and we look forward to showcasing them at CIX.”

Executives of each company will present to more than 700 investors and peers in the North American technology ecosystem at CIX 2019 from Oct. 16-17. Alongside the showcases will be dynamic keynotes and sessions led by top tech business leaders, investors, and entrepreneurs.
