2019 Call for Nominations

Have a "hot" growth company in the technology sector you want the world to hear about? Nominate them to BC's 17th Annual "Ready to Rocket" list.


Rocket Builders is Seeking Nominations for the 2019 "Ready to Rocket" and "Emerging Rockets" Lists. This recognition program will showcase companies in ICT, Digital Health, Life Science and CleanTech sectors and will be presented March 11th 2019. Rocket Builders is joined by CBRE, Garibaldi Capital, Go Recruitment, McMillan LLP, the City of New Westminster and PwC in welcoming new nominations.


BC is home to many of Canada's most exciting technology companies. Rocket Builders has built a unique methodology for analyzing market trends and using this knowledge to predict revenue growth in the coming year. Each year Rocket Builders publishes lists which profile the BC companies that have the greatest potential in the coming year.


The "Ready to Rocket" Lists feature top technology companies that are best positioned to capitalize on the largest growth trends in the technology industry. This upcoming list will be the 17th year of this recognition list. We expect that companies selected to the "Ready to Rocket" list will outperform the economy and represent important trends that are creating rapid revenue growth.


We are seeking nominations for the 2019 "Ready to Rocket" lists that we will present on March 11th 2019. Nomination deadline is February 15th 2019, but submission as soon as possible will allow the selection committee more time to consider your nomination. At the same time we are accepting “Emerging Rockets” nominations for startup companies just entering the market at an early stage.

Nominations


Nominations can be submitted online at: http://www.readytorocket.com/p/nominations.html


Please nominate a company even if the company is "too early" to qualify as Rocket Builders also recognizes emerging companies. Many promising companies are too early in commercialization, too early in first revenues, or in transition to new markets or business models. Based on the potential of their technology alone, Rocket Builders recognizes their potential in an "Emerging Rockets" list. These companies represent companies to watch over the next few years and are likely to mature into "Ready to Rocket" companies.
