ComScore’s Top Startups in Canada - January 2009

Posted by Rob Lewis

As a follow-up to our January 2009 Canada Startup index yesterday, comScore has provided us with their take on the top contenders.

In the above chart, the Online % Reach is the percentage of Canadians online that each entity reaches. As an example, Metrolyrics reached 8.9% of all Canadians during November 2008, making them the hands-down leader.

ZipLocal had the biggest month-over-month improvement rising from 2.7 to 3.2 and leapfrogging RedFlagDeals.

Thanks again to comScore for sharing this valuable data with Techvibes.
