About Startup 50
As the Growth 500 ranking is based on revenue growth over five years, companies need to have been in operation for at least five years to be eligible. However, we believe that young, fast growing companies are also deserving of recognition. We therefore celebrate these younger companies with the 2018 Startup 50 ranking of the fastest growing new companies in Canada. A companion to the broader Growth 500, this special ranking profiles public and private companies based on revenue growth over a period of two years. Leaders in growth ranked on each of the Growth 500 and Startup 50 will be published in special editions of Maclean’s and L’actualité, and posted online at CanadianBusiness.com.
