The Canadian Startup Index - December 2012

Posted by Rob Lewis

Introducing our latest Canadian Startup Index, powered by GoToMeeting. You'll notice some changes to this edition, namely in the form of rankings.

What do we mean, exactly? Well, we've taken a deeper look at what a "startup" really is and retooled the index appropriately. For example, several companies in our top 10, such as HootSuite, can no longer be considered startups by most criteria (that's a good thing!). So they've bowed out gracefully, opening up space for newer startups to make their mark in history.

With this adjustment, a new breed of Canadian startups now has the opportunity to crack our list. Check out the new rankings below.

The Canadian Startup Index is powered by GoToMeeting:

Communicate better. Build trust. Get more done. GoToMeeting is the extremely simple, extraordinarily powerful web conferencing service from Citrix. It integrates HD video conferencing, screen sharing and audio conferencing, creating a natural face-to-face collaboration environment on your Mac, PC, iPad, iPhone or Android device. And you can hold unlimited meetings for one low flat fee. GoToMeeting will change the way you work – and perhaps a whole lot more.
