Uberflip ranks #13 in the 2012 PROFIT HOT 50

We are honoured to be recognized by PROFIT Magazine for growing rapidly and successfully re-branding in the past year,” says Yoav Schwartz

PROFIT Magazine ranked Uberflip #13 on its 13th annual PROFIT HOT 50, the definitive ranking of Canada’s Top New Growth Companies. Published in the October issue of PROFIT Magazine and online at, the PROFIT HOT 50 ranks young firms by two-year revenue growth.

“We are honoured to be recognized by PROFIT Magazine for growing rapidly and successfully re-branding in the past year,” says Yoav Schwartz, Uberflip Founder and CEO. “The award is dedicated to the Uberflip employees who work tirelessly and passionately to make Uberflip a world class platform, and to our customers who are growing with us and who have become such great ambassadors for our product.”

Uberflip, with 18 employees and growing, is a B2B software-as-a-service that allows any firm with PDF content to convert their existing multi-page documents into stunning, interactive flipbooks that works seamlessly across desktop, smartphones, and tablets.

“A talented and diverse group of entrepreneurs have built this year’s HOT 50 companies,” says Ian Portsmouth, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of PROFIT. “Their creativity and ambition spell a bright future for their businesses, and point the way to success in Canada’s ever-challenging economy.”

Although the tech start-up has been around since 2008, they re-branded as Uberflip (previously known at Mygazines) earlier in 2012. Along with the re-brand, they also changed their pricing model dramatically with the introduction of a free trial, and a new $29.95 price point.

“Marketers are needlessly spending thousands of dollars to create mobile apps that make their brochures, whitepapers, newsletters, product guides, and other such documents available across a multitude of devices,” says Schwartz. “They can now make their PDFs instantly available with a device agnostic format. Better yet, we have the tools to enhance, promote, and ultimately track the content. We prove our worth with a no-risk free trial.”
