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.
Two companies that call Alberta home were recognized on the Technology Fast 50 list.
Symend provides a digital engagement platform that helps institutions collect debts—though not in the way one might first imagine. It’s not collections; it’s to avoid collections entirely. Founded in 2016, Symend has gone from just 50 employees in 2020 to nearly 300 today.
Two Calgary-based companies – Athennian and Vitruvi – 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.
Founded in 2017, Athennian’s innovative software powers legal, tax and finance teams to seamlessly digitize, streamline and manage business entities and company structures. Athennian was #2 in the category with revenue growth of 3,296% and is well-funded thanks to a $33 million funding round earlier this year.
Spun out of Fresnel Software in 2016, Vitruvi is a GIS enabled, end-to-end telecom construction software platform that drive efficiencies, increases data visibility and reduces costs.
Additionally, two companies from Alberta – Edmonton’s Jobber and Calgary’s CoolIT Systems – received an Enterprise Fast 15 award, a leadership category open to companies that recorded a minimum revenue of $10 million in 2016 and a minimum revenue of $25 million in 2019.
Unfortunately no companies from Alberta were recognized in the Clean Technology category.
