Mappedin places No. 243 on The Globe and Mail’s second-annual ranking of Canada’s Top Growing Companies

Waterloo, ONTARIO (September 24, 2021) -- Mappedin is pleased to announce it placed No. 243 on the 2021 Report on Business ranking of Canada’s Top Growing Companies.

Canada’s Top Growing Companies ranks Canadian companies on three-year revenue growth. Mappedin earned its spot with three-year growth of 155%.

Mappedin got its start working with shopping centres, providing digital wayfinding to shoppers. Today, the majority of Class A malls around the world use their indoor mapping platform. However, Mappedin has always aimed to provide simple indoor mapping tools and digital wayfinding experiences to all indoor spaces.

Over the last few years, Mappedin has worked with different industries, gaining valuable insights on the challenges they face. This led the company’s expansion from mall-focused wayfinding products to flexible mapping tools and SDKs that can serve a much broader base of use cases and industries.

In 2020, Mappedin signed up a national sporting league, the US Department of Homeland Security, and ServiceNow to integrate their mapping tools, alongside many other new customers. In 2021 to date, Mappedin has already doubled their number of customers, most of that growth coming from non-retail verticals and platform integrations.

“Accurate digital maps and simple tools keep rapidly-changing indoor spaces up-to-date and help businesses provide meaningful experiences for their visitors.” said Hongwei Liu, CEO of Mappedin. “This is what Mappedin does and how our products will continue to help indoor spaces for years to come.”

Launched in 2019, the Canada’s Top Growing Companies editorial ranking aims to celebrate entrepreneurial achievement in Canada by identifying and amplifying the success of growth-minded, independent businesses in Canada. It is a voluntary program; companies had to complete an in-depth application process in order to qualify. In total, 448 companies earned a spot on this year’s ranking. 

The full list of 2021 winners, and accompanying editorial coverage, is published in the October issue of Report on Business magazine—out now—and online.

“As we look toward the future, Canada’s Top Growing Companies offer both inspiration and practical insights for other firms facing similar challenges,” says James Cowan, Editor of Report on Business magazine. “The entrepreneurs behind these companies are smart, tenacious and unwavering in their commitment to their goals.”

 “Any business leader seeking inspiration should look no further than the 448 businesses on this year’s Report on Business ranking of Canada’s Top Growing Companies,” says Phillip Crawley, Publisher and CEO of The Globe and Mail. “Their growth helps to make Canada a better place, and we are proud to bring their stories to our readers.”
