CB Insights has released a 2017 Periodic Table of Tech in Canada with support from PwC in celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary.
The table highlights 150 Canada-based startups, investors, and exits from Canada’s private company tech scene. It includes over 100 companies operating in select industry categories that are particularly prominent in Canada, along with the top 20 exits of Canadian tech companies since 2012 with disclosed valuations. Also included are the most active venture capital and corporate investors located in Canada that are investing globally in private tech companies, such as Real Ventures.
Element AI is present in the computing and AI category and Luxury Retreats is listed among the top 20 exits. Some other Montreal shout-outs include Lightspeed POS in fintech, Breather in real estate tech, and Frank and Oak in ecommerce.
Notably, Canada’s tech ecosystem as a whole is showing signs of growth. On an annual basis, 2016 saw deal activity to VC-backed Canadian companies climb 7%, according to the Q4 and Full-year 2016 Money Tree Canada Report from PwC and CB Insights.
The startups selected for inclusion in the table all have at least $1M in funding, and have obtained funding since 2014. Additionally, they were pulled from analysis using CB Insights data around funding, and company health including momentum as captured by CB’s proprietary Mosaic algorithm.
