Beyond the Rack Creates the Most Jobs of Any Canadian Startup

by Knowlton Thomas

Beyond the Rack, which already has by far the most revenue of anyone on Profit's Hot 50 list, also has the most employees.

As a result, the Canadian startup—and this is certainly the last year where anyone can rightfully label it a startup—created more jobs than any other from 2009 to 2011.

Yona Shtern's wildly successful company created 258 jobs in that timespan, the most of any Hot 50 startup, bringing its total headcount to a whopping 333.

Beyond the Rack's top-ranked revenue clocked in at more than $82 million in 2011, its second accolade, and its $33 million in export sales earned it a third accolade of top exporter.

Despite its size—while small overall, it is giant compared to most of its Hot 50 peers—Beyond the Rack still came in third place on Profit's list with a blistering 1,597% two-year revenue growth rate.
