The Canadian Innovation Exchange hosted presentations from this year’s CIX Top 20 list to a full audience at Toronto’s MaRS Discovery District.
The CIX Top 20 was handpicked from across Canada by a selection committee of experts and the list was first revealed on Techvibes last month.
Throughout the day, 600 delegates used virtual currency to bid on the CIX Top 20 as each company presented on what makes them the company to watch in the coming year and participants saw their valuations rise and fall live on the virtual stock exchange. The Audience Choice was awarded to Gallop Labs.
Gallop Labs is a mobile prescriptive marketing platform that leverages data science and in-app behavioral analytics to help brands and mobile publishers find and optimize the most valuable users for their applications.
Gallop Labs was recently a winner of the Facebook Innovation Award for their work driving users for a leading music app.
The company was incubated by BNOTIONS, a Facebook Preferred Marketing Developer, and currently has offices in New York City and Toronto.
Outside of the Top 20 competition, CIX also honoured Vision Critical CEO Scott Miller with the 2014 Innovator of the Year Award.
