One of the things I love about the Wave team is how people across the company rally to celebrate each other’s wins. Someone released a great new feature for our customers? Expect a flood of celebratory emails. Someone else got a promotion? Here come the GIFs.
Today I’ll use this platform to congratulate the entire Wave team, from Customer Success to Finance to Product and everything in between, on the announcement this morning that Wave has once again made the Deloitte Technology Fast 50™️ and North American Fast 500™️ lists.
The Fast 50 is an award that distinguishes 50 Canadian technology companies with the highest revenue-growth percentage; the Fast 500 recognizes 500 companies across all of North America. This year, Wave ranks 12th with a 1,647% percent in revenue growth. The median growth rate for companies on the list was 878%.
Wave’s success comes from one thing: Understanding the needs and the day-to-day struggles of our customers — entrepreneurs and small business owners who dream big dreams and together shape the economy. If we’ve done anything right in the last few years, it’s making sure that no matter what part of Wave you’re responsible for, you know how the work you do intersects with our mission to empower entrepreneurs. The accelerating growth we see in our customer base, our revenues, and other KPIs are all the result of this focus from nearly 200 Wavers every day. For that, I thank and congratulate the Wave team.
Making the Deloitte Fast 50 or Fast 500 any one time is spectacular. What’s even harder is making the list more than once. And that’s why I’m even more proud that Wave has made the Fast 50 three years in a row. In fact, Wave is the only Canadian company to make the top 20 in 2016, 2017 and 2018.
We’re not done. Every day we work hard to keep learning from the entrepreneurs we’re so proud to serve; then we follow that up with innovative ways for them to make money, move money and manage money.
The best part about fast growth: it enables us to support our customers better every day, in even more innovative ways. I know what the team has their eyes on for 2019 — it’s going to be a great year.
