Who are Canada’s hottest startups?
It is a challenging (impossible?) question to answer because “hot” can be defined in many ways: revenue growth, capital raised, awards won, media coverage, the disruptive potential of a product or technology, etc. Another variable is how to define a “startup”. At what stage does a business graduate from startup to small business?
In other words, it can be a fool’s game to create a definitive “hot startup” list, which may or may not have much value other than giving startups the opportunity to wave the flag.
If there is a startup that should be on the list, leave a comment or drop me a note.
