CIX names Bluecat Canada’s Hottest Innovation Company

Each year, the Canadian Innovation Exchange searches for Canada´s most innovative technology-based companies in Information and Communications Technologies (ICT), Clean Technology and Digital Media. From over 200 applicants, a selection committee consisting of twenty-six leading experts from major corporations, entrepreneurs, and investors selected Canada´s 25 Hottest Innovative Companies. These companies then presented to a live audience at CIX, before one company was honored with distinction in each of the three categories by a panel of experts.

“Congratulations to all of our showcasing companies for dazzling us with their spectacular presentations and their achievements in new technologies,” said Robert Montgomery, Co-Chair of the Canadian Innovation Exchange, and CEO of First Maximilian and Achilles Media. “These companies reflect the forward-thinking creativity and continual innovation that Canadian businesses have to offer,” Montgomery continued. “BlueCat Networks is a world leader in DDI technology and represents the very best of Canadian innovation – making it an ideal choice as Canada´s Hottest Innovative ICT Company for 2010.”

“BlueCat is built on world-leading DDI : technology innovation, and so is very proud to be recognized as an innovative leader in Canada by the illustrious panel at the CIX conference,” said Michael Hyatt, CEO & Co-Founder, BlueCat Networks.
“Canada has always been at the forefront of global information technology innovation, and looking at the 25 excellent finalists for this prestigious award, it looks like that legacy is set to continue.”
