Earlier today Wave was named one of Canada's most innovative companies by CIX (Canadian Innovation Exchange), and we couldn’t be more excited. Each year, CIX highlights the 20 hottest, innovative companies working in Digital Media and Information and Communication Technology, and after the great year we've had we've been named to the list for 2011. (See our press release.)
Along with CEOs from the other Top 20 companies, I’ll be speaking at the showcase on December 1st at the MaRS Discovery District in Toronto. Each company in the Top 20 will present, and then the audience uses virtual currency to buy and sell virtual shares in the 20 participants. The company with the highest valuation at the end of the day wins the People’s Choice award. It should be a fun day.
It's great being a part of an event, and a business community, that values innovation. Every day I have the pleasure of meeting new innovators of various descriptions, from the companies using Wave to high-octane tech ventures that are shaking up the business world. There's cool stuff going on all around, so to be honored by CIX as one of the country's most innovative companies of the year really means a lot to all of us here at Wave.
