Canada’s Top Growing Companies ranks Canadian companies on three-year revenue growth. BlackSquare Inc. earned its spot with three-year growth of 260%.
“BlackSquare’s ranking as one of Canada’s fastest growing companies is a direct reflection of our technology, processes and most importantly our people. ” said Matthew Protti, BlackSquare’s co-founder and CEO. “COVID has changed the way individuals interact with brands and ecommerce has become an integral part of many consumer purchases. BlackSquare’s unique value proposition in helping global alcohol producers sell via ecommerce clearly resonates and has enabled our strong growth, headquartered from right here in Alberta.”
Launched in 2019, the Canada’s Top Growing Companies editorial ranking aims to celebrate entrepreneurial achievement in Canada by identifying and amplifying the success of growth-minded, independent businesses in Canada. It is a voluntary program; companies had to complete an in-depth application process in order to qualify. In total, 448 companies earned a spot on this year’s ranking.
The full list of 2021 winners, and accompanying editorial coverage, is published in the October issue of Report on Business magazine—out now—and online.
“As we look toward the future, Canada’s Top Growing Companies offer both inspiration and practical insights for other firms facing similar challenges,” says James Cowan, Editor of Report on Business magazine. “The entrepreneurs behind these companies are smart, tenacious and unwavering in their commitment to their goals.”
“Any business leader seeking inspiration should look no further than the 448 businesses on this year’s Report on Business ranking of Canada’s Top Growing Companies,” says Phillip Crawley, Publisher and CEO of The Globe and Mail. “Their growth helps to make Canada a better place, and we are proud to bring their stories to our readers.”
