HootSuite the Only Canadian Company on Mashable's 'Winners of Tech 2013' List

Posted by Techvibes NewsDesk

Just one Canadian company made Mashable's list of "Winners of Tech 2013," and that company was Vancouver-based social media titan HootSuite.

Here's what the US tech news site said of HootSuite:

Social media management platform HootSuite received $165 million in funding in August, putting its valuation in the $1 billion-plus range. The service, which has about 7 million users worldwide, continues to gain traction with its "freemium" model, enticing people with a free version to eventually pay for more extensive services.

Mashable's data is out of date, however, as we know that HootSuite already has more than eight million users. It also has not been confirmed that HootSuite's valuation has exceeded one billion, with some still suggesting a valuation of half that amount.

Regardless, HootSuite is in good company on the list: othes "winners of tech" for the year include Netflix, Apple, and Twitter.
