“What an exciting evening to be among the top national technology innovators in Canada,” said Wajam CEO Martin-Luc Archambault. “Our team continues to push the envelope when it comes to finding new ways to bring users the most relevant search results that matter. Our goal is to elevate social search so people can take their friend recommendations with them everywhere on multiple devices; when they shop, are looking for local restaurants and hotels, or even the best attractions to visit when they go to a desired destination. I’d like to thank PwC Vision to Reality Awards for recognizing what we have been able to accomplish and seeing our vision.”
The PwC Vision to Reality Awards program celebrates dynamic companies in the technology sector that have demonstrated successful growth, and whose outstanding achievements have made them some of Canada’s most successful technology companies.
