AskingCanadians, the leading online data collection company in Canada, has been named one of Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™ companies, ranking among the fastest-growing technology firms in North America for the third consecutive year.
The Deloitte Technology Fast 500™ awards program ranks the 500 fastest-growing companies throughout North America in the technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, and energy technology sectors.
AskingCanadians ranked 443 on this year’s list with a 142 per cent increase in revenue growth from 2012 to 2015. (Due to the dramatic exchange rate between Canada and the US, the percentage growth for the Fast 500 was calculated in US dollars instead of Canadian dollars.)
“Today, when every organization can be a tech company, the most effective businesses not only foster the courage to explore change, but also encourage creativity in using and applying existing assets in new ways, as resourcefully as possible,” said Anders McKenzie, Technology, Media and Telecommunications Managing Partner for Deloitte in Canada “This ingenious approach to innovation calls for the encouragement of curiosity and collaboration both within and outside the office walls.”
Overall, 2016 Technology Fast 500 companies achieved revenue growth ranging from 121 percent to 66,661 percent from 2012 to 2015, with an average growth rate of 290 percent.
“We are extremely proud to be included on this elite list for the third consecutive year,” said Raj Manocha, Executive Vice President of Delvinia. “This achievement reflects the strength of our business, our commitment to innovation and R&D, and the dedication of our team to delivering solutions tailored to our clients’ needs.”
Following a strong 2015, AskingCanadians has continued to experience double-digit growth throughout 2016 and is looking forward to the launch of innovative products and platforms, the addition of new panel partners, and the recruitment of new team members as the firm continues to grow its brand.
