TORONTO, ON - September 25th, 2020 — ThinkData Works is pleased to announce it placed No. 95 on the 2020 Report on Business ranking of Canada’s Top Growing Companies.
Canada’s Top Growing Companies ranks Canadian companies on three-year revenue growth. ThinkData earned its spot with three-year growth of 512%.
ThinkData Works is a leading data technology company that transforms raw data into useable products to fuel business innovation. ThinkData's significant growth is largely due to their success in building effective and scalable solution that makes external data easier to access and use. Bryan Smith, co-founder and CEO, attributes their success to their persistence and commitment to solving the problems of data access. Smith says, "What we’re now seeing is that companies often have a handle on the data they generate internally — it’s external data that’s the biggest blind spot." ThinkData expects to double its revenue this year and again in 2021 by focusing on solving the challenges of external data.
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, 400 companies earned a spot on this year’s ranking.
The full list of 2020 winners, and accompanying editorial coverage, is published in the October issue of Report on Business magazine—out now—and online at tgam.ca/TopGrowing.
“The stories of Canada’s Top Growing Companies are worth telling at any time, but are especially relevant in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic,” says James Cowan, Editor of Report on Business magazine. “As businesses work to rebuild the economy, their resilience and innovation make for essential reading.”
“Any business leader seeking inspiration should look no further than the 400 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.”
