Eleven OCE-supported companies have been recognized at this year’s Deloitte Technology Fast 50™Awards, including the Technology Fast 50™ ranking, Companies-to-Watch, Technology Green 15™ and coveted Leadership awards.

360pi (Ottawa), eSentire (Cambridge), Thalmic Labs (Kitchener) and Vidyard (Kitchener) were also recognized in Deloitte’s Companies-to-Watch Awards. These awards honour early-stage Canadian technology companies who have been in business less than five years.

Hydrogenics (Mississauga) and REGEN Energy (Toronto), both OCE-supported companies, were also acknowledged in Deloitte’s Green 15™, awarded to companies who use innovative technologies to create products and services that compete with existing products and services on price and performance while reducing impact on the environment.

Desire2Learn Incorporated (Ottawa) was recognized as one of three coveted Technology Fast 50™ Leadership winners, awarded to companies based on their ability to create a distinct competitive advantage in a high growth market.

Dr. Tom Corr, OCE President and CEO, said Deloitte’s recognition of these innovative Ontario companies speaks directly to the importance of partnerships and collaboration in creating economic prosperity within the province.

“I would like to congratulate the Ontario companies recognized at this year’s Deloitte Technology Fast 50™Awards,” said Dr. Corr. “Together, they represent the brilliant ideas, entrepreneurial spirit and innovative thinking that’s driving our province forward and making a better future for all Ontarians.”
