Kitchener-based ApplyBoard, the platform empowering students around the world to access the best education, today announced it has been recognized by Deloitte as Canada’s fastest-growing technology company within the public and private sectors. Transforming the industry through bold innovation, entrepreneurial spirit, and rapid growth, ApplyBoard has been ranked No. 1 by achieving 12,525 per cent growth from 2015 to 2018.

“The ApplyBoard Team is excited to be recognized by Deloitte as part of its 2019 Technology Fast 50 program,” said Co-Founder and CEO, Martin Basiri. “We firmly believe that education is a right, not a privilege. Our company is on a mission to make education accessible to students regardless of their location. It’s incredibly rewarding to be recognized for the positive impact we’re having on the lives of thousands of people around the world.”

The ApplyBoard platform makes it easier for international students to select an educational institution and program of study, submit applications to attend, and begin studying abroad. ApplyBoard has assisted more than 65,000 students since 2015 through its innovative technology and partnerships with over 1,200 primary, secondary, and post-secondary institutions, as well as 3,500 global recruitment partners.

“In an era of rapid and constant change, Fast 50 companies should be incredibly proud of the impact they are making across all industries, as they foster the economic prosperity and success of our country,” said Erica Pretorius, Partner and National Leader from the Technology Fast 50 program at Deloitte Canada. “Their bold vision, unrivalled growth and true commitment to innovation allow them to not only improve today’s world, but also shape tomorrow’s, and I can’t wait to see where they take us moving forward.”

To qualify for the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 ranking, companies must have been in business for at least four years, be headquartered in Canada, own proprietary technology, conduct research and development activities in Canada, and invest a minimum of five percent of gross revenues in R&D.
