The annual Growth 500 is the definitive ranking of Canada’s Fasting-Growing Companies, produced each year by Canada’s premier business and current affairs media brands. Published by Canadian Business and Maclean’s, as well as online at Growth500.ca and CanadianBusiness.com, the Growth 500 ranks Canadian businesses on their five-year revenue growth.
This year, geekspeak made the cut at No. 332 on the list, boasting a five-year revenue growth of 221%. In the ranking of fastest-growing companies in the GTA, geekspeak ranks No. 132. Though not used in the ranking, geekspeak’s nine-year revenue growth is an impressive 410%.
“The companies on the 2019 Growth 500 are truly remarkable. Demonstrating foresight, innovation and smart management, their stories serve as a primer for how to build a successful entrepreneurial business today,” says Beth Fraser, Growth 500 program manager. “As we celebrate over 30 years of the Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies program, it’s encouraging to see that entrepreneurship is healthier than ever in this country.”
Isaac Wanzama, geekspeak Founder and Chief Strategist says, “The geekspeak team is thrilled to be included in this year’s Growth 500 ranking of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies. As a company based in downtown Whitby, it’s always exciting to work with national and international clients. Being in the eCommerce industry has allowed us to grow further, faster and we’re eager to see where we go in the next five years and beyond.”
