Growth 500 Logo 2018 BlueTORONTO, SEPTEMBER 13, 2018 – For the third straight year Canadian Business magazine has named Environics Analytics to its 30th annual Growth 500, the definitive ranking of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies.

Ranking Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies by five-year revenue growth, the Growth 500—formerly known as the PROFIT 500—profiles the country’s most successful entrepreneurial businesses.

Environics Analytics’ growth continues to accelerate thanks to the company’s growing roster of clients and its expansion into the U.S. This year Environics Analytics climbs 61 spots up the ranking to claim No. 229 on the 2018 Growth 500 with a five-year revenue growth of 313 percent. That’s up from No. 290 and a growth rate of 204 percent in 2017 and No. 322 in 2016 when it posted a 167 percent growth rate.

“The companies on the 2018 Growth 500 are truly remarkable. Demonstrating foresight, innovation and smart management, their stories serve as a primer for how to build a successful entrepreneurial business today,” says Deborah Aarts, Growth 500 editor and program manager. “As we celebrate 30 years of the Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies program, it’s encouraging to see that entrepreneurship is healthier than ever in this country.”

“Environics Analytics is proud to be recognized as one of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies,” says Jan Kestle, Environics Analytics’ president and CEO. “We’re especially pleased at this achievement because it shows that a growing number of organizations value and trust our ability to help them reach their own growth targets. Every year we see more forward-thinking organizations embrace the importance of leveraging data and analytics to inform their decision making and achieve results.”
