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 2020, over 478 companies applied.

Thank you to the CIX team for the phenomenal event and recognition as a CIX Top 20 company and the opportunities it brings. It was such an honour for me and Savormetrics to participate in the CIX events. It is humbling and motivating to look at the CIX Top 20 alumni and what they went on to accomplish. You could very easily have canceled this year’s event due to CoVID, and we are thankful you did not. It was organized so well. I have already had about 35-40 high potential leads/contacts due to this recognition and the event.

Harjeet Bajaj

President & CEO
Savormetrics Inc

Thank you to CIX and everyone Involved…. As virtual events go, CIX was so well done! Networking was easy, met some great entrepreneurs and investors with many follow-up meetings. The sessions were interesting, relevant and simple to find and access virtually. I hope to attend CIX live in 2021, but this was a cool experience! And I really enjoyed opening the TSX with CIX!
