Markham, ON (PRWEB) October 26, 2011
The Greater Toronto Area adds to the recognition of its role as Ontario’s tech hub with an impressive 18 Area companies named to the Deloitte Fast 50.
Four of the Fast 50 companies: Real Matters Inc.; Doxim Inc.; Complete Innovations Inc.; and Nightingale Informatix Corporation are York Technology Alliance (YTA) members with headquarters in York Region.
“It is terrific to see the national recognition for our local companies provided in the Deloitte Fast 50” said Pat Shaw, YTA Executive Director. “These are innovative and exciting organizations thriving in local, national and global markets”.
He continued, “There is a clear correlation of the increase in successful companies and the availability of support and access to collaborative community resources. It’s great to see Real Matters, recipient of the YTA Scale Up Company of the Year Award two years ago making the Deloitte list – in fact being recognized as the #7 fastest growing company in North America! With their YTA peers, many achieving remarkable rates of growth in their own right, they help mark the Region of York and the GTA as the geographic and growth centre-point of the Ontario Tech Corridor.”
Chris Rasmussen, President and CEO of Doxim Inc. also emphasized the value of location to their business, saying, “It’s a great location to source the technology talent we need as our business grows. It’s perfectly located to access pretty much all of the GTA and the rents are significantly lower than downtown Toronto. It all adds up to a great mix of benefits for a growing technology company.”
“The Deloitte Fast 50 is an important catalyst for knowledge based growth firms and provides the type of recognition from their peer community and clients alike to help propel them to the next level of growth,” said Jeremy Laurin, CEO of ventureLAB and YTA Board Member; “Advocating for our members is a key goal of the YTA and the Deloitte recognition helps the YTA and its membership accomplish this goal.”
