The program recognizes Canada’s 50 fastest-growing technology companies with the highest revenue-growth percentage over the past four years.

ApplyBoard Co-Founder and CEO Martin Basiri is honoured to receive this award on behalf of the team and congratulates the other inspiring tech companies also featured on the list.
“The pandemic has been difficult for international studies and decreased the market by as much as 70%, but despite these challenges we still managed to demonstrate strong growth,” said Martin Basiri. “We would not have been able to achieve this without the hard work of our ApplyBoard team members worldwide and the support of partner schools, recruitment partners, students, and investors.”

This marks the third consecutive year that ApplyBoard has been recognized by Deloitte as one of Canada’s fastest-growing companies. In 2019, ApplyBoard ranked #1, taking the title of the fastest-growing technology company in Canada and in 2020 ApplyBoard ranked #2 on the Deloitte Technology Fast 50™.
