Online rate comparison site LowestRates.ca has added another feather to its cap, earning a prestigious award meant for innovative entrepreneurship ventures in Canada.
Late last week, the portal announced that it has received MasterCard’s Startup Canada High-Growth Entrepreneurship Award in Toronto.
“We are incredibly honoured and excited to be recognized for our growth by Startup Canada,” LowestRates.ca co-founder and CEO Justin Thouin said.
“It’s a huge accomplishment to grow so quickly and to do so organically, without the help of any acquisitions or outside funding, in such a short time. We’re looking forward to continuing our growth and our mission of helping Canadians save time and money when buying financial products.”
The accolade came in the wake of other citations, including 11th place on the 2018 Growth 500 and 9th place on Deloitte’s 2018 Technology Fast 50.
In previous years, LowestRates.ca has also been recognized as one of Canada’s fastest-growing start-ups.
“We are honoured to recognize vibrant entrepreneurs and disruptors across Canada. Each recipient is highly contributing to build our nation's economy and to strengthen the entrepreneurial and innovation ecosystem. It makes me proud to celebrate the talent and achievements of every one of our winners,” Startup Canada CEO Anastasia Valentine stated.
