PROFIT 100 list announced

Posted by Rob Lewis

The PROFIT 100 list is out and tech companies are well represented.

Every CEO or business owner can learn from, and be inspired by, the success stories celebrated by the PROFIT 100, the definitive ranking of Canada's Fastest-Growing Companies.

Making just the tail end of this year's list — our 20th annual — required explosive 5-year revenue growth of 627%. And the average PROFIT 100 company grew its revenue by a sizzling 1,800%. Clearly, it takes something exceptional to rank among the entrepreneurial elite of the PROFIT 100.

The 20th-annual PROFIT 100 has the same twofold mandate as the ranking did at its inception: to celebrate entrepreneurship and to uncover the management practices of successful Canadian companies. Our mix of engrossing stories on Canada's rising business stars and practical management advice from PROFIT 100 CEOs deserves the attention of all entrepreneurs with an interest in growing their business.

Here's a sampling of some of the tech companies that made the list.
