CURATED EARLY AND GROWTH STARTUPS


CIX TOP is Canada’s only awards program that nationally evaluates and selects the most innovative EARLY and GROWTH-stage startups from coast to coast. In 2019, over 400 companies applied.

Thanks to CIX for putting on this great event. It was an honour to be selected as a CIX Top 10 Growth company, and to share Bold's story with an engaged group of innovators and investors. Having been through the process of finding an investment partner ourselves, I see how valuable this event can be for high growth start-ups looking to make connections and scale their business.

Yvan Boisjoli

Co-Founder and CEO
Bold Commerce

We were honoured to be selected as a 2019 CIX Top 20 company, and I was thrilled to be able to showcase our business to the room full of outstanding innovators and leaders. CIX was an excellent forum to gain exposure and recognition, and we wear our nomination proudly.
