Today, Canadian Business recognized sMedia as the 30th fastest-growing company in Canada in 2019! We are thrilled to be among the most ambitious, innovative and successful businesses in Canada.

Here are some fun facts to know about the 2019 Growth 500 companies:

  • for the first time ever, every single Growth 500 company exceeded 100% growth
  • winning execs typically work about 56 hours a week, and just under half are satisfied with their work-life balance. 197 execs didn’t respond. Presumably, they were at the office
  • sisters are doing it for themselves: 10.6% of Growth 500 companies are run by women
  • 71.2% of Growth 500 firms have a direct sales force. The qualities they most want their salespeople to possess are persistence, work ethic, extroversion, helpfulness and charisma

It’s been an eventful year since sMedia was the 53rd fastest-growing Canadian company in 2018 and we aren’t slowing down anytime soon. sMedia is committed to facilitating and growing Saskatchewan’s tech scene, and we are just getting started.
