Earlier this month, Rocket Builders announced its eleventh annual Ready to Rocket list of British Columbia-based technology companies. And guess what? They included Kashoo in the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) category! We are thrilled and honoured to have made this list. For some background, Ready to Rocket is a business recognition program for British Columbia's tech sector that showcases the Revenue Growth Leaders of Tomorrow. "Since 2003, the Ready to Rocket list has consistently predicted the revenue growth leaders and the companies most likely to attract investment." Sponsors include Colliers International, Espresso Capital, Fasken Martineau, GO Recruitment and PWC.
Here's a quick word from Steven Forth, Senior Partner at Rocket Builders, via TechVibes:
“The number of ICT companies in B.C. continues to grow, with a number of high profile accelerators contributing to this trend. The ICT sector as a whole has been driven by cloud computing, mobile and social trends and technologies, and we see those factors driving many of the B.C. companies. Of particular interest is the trend of the ‘Internet of Things’ and ‘Big Data’ which seems to be influencing some of the emerging companies.”
According to our Chief, Jim Secord, making the ICT list is a great indicator of things to come:
"Over the years, there have been a ton of great companies on this list—a number of which we look up to. So it means a lot that we're a part of this community. And it's fantastic to see the ICT 'Ready to Rocket' list focusing on two trends Kashoo is all about: cloud and mobile."
Onward and upward! (Pun fully intended.)
