CIX Top 20 Announced

cix It’s a very interesting list of Canadian companies selected for the CIX Top 20.

It’s a great showing for our friends at TechCapital Partners with Metranome, OverlayTV and PostRank in the list. As expected for a conference in Toronto there is strong representation from the the Waterloo-Montreal corridor with only D-Wave System from BC.

There is a strong focus on software/web services (particularly focused on media) with CognoVision, GlassBOX Television, Metranome, Morega System, Peerset and Overlay TV in the media enablement space. And Dayforce, Enstream, IGLOO, PostRank, and Rypple in the web services space.

It’s going to be an interesting dog and pony show.

  1. Congrats to the CIX folks – there are some great companies here. It certainly promises to be a good show!

  2. @rogerchabra has reminded me that GrowthWorks also has 3 companies in the CIX Top 20.

    * Morega
    * Peerset
    * D-Wave

    There are still great deals in Canada. The challenge is that the dealflow has continued to decrease. The CVCA announced that the 2009Q3 dealflow is the lowest in 14 years. The concern isn't the quality of the deals but the volume. We can see that TechCapital and GrowthWorks and others are finding great investments, we just need more of them.
