2015 Survey of emerging Canadian companies

As founders and lead visionaries of emerging technology companies you have a unique perspective on how to overcome challenges and grow a successful business in Canada. Survey findings will be presented at this year’s Vision to Reality Conference on April 16th and captured in our annual report on emerging Canadian companies.

Building tomorrow’s giants

Now in its 11th year, our 2014 Emerging companies’ survey, takes a deep dive to outline the challenges and opportunities facing Canada’s emerging technology sector, as identified by its top decision-makers―the CEOs.

This year we focus on building businesses with Canadian roots— and global reach. Canada is a great place to start a company, and a fantastic place to grow one. Along with sharing the views and perspectives of the CEOs we’ve surveyed, we offer some suggestions on how Canada’s emerging companies can stay rooted here while growing and thriving on the global stage.

We also introduce a number of entrepreneurs who have overcome many obstacles to turn a vision into reality and a great idea into a successful business. Featured video interviews include:

  • Razor Suleman, Founder and Chief Evangelist, Achievers
  • Harley Finkelstein, Chief Platform Officer, Shopify
  • David Stein, VP, Salesforce
  • Greg Gunn, VP Business Development, HootSuite
  • Anish Acharya, Partner, Google Ventures
