The screening process

Tens of thousands of companies were invited to participate in the competition by submitting their revenue figures based on the following qualifying criteria:

  • A revenue of at least $100,000 USD generated in 2017 
  • A revenue of at least $1.5 million USD generated in 2020 
  • The company operates independently and is not a subsidiary or branch office of another company or organization
  • The company is headquartered in Argentina, Belize, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, United States, Uruguay or Venezuela
  • The revenue growth between 2017 and 2020 was primarily organic (i.e., "internally" stimulated) 

In addition, all submitted revenue figures had to be certified by the CFO, CEO or a member of the Executive Committee of the company to qualify. 

The results

In the results, Geotab ranked 365th out of 500, nabbing a spot on the list near major tech companies like Lyft (363) and Amazon (371).

 

In total, Geotab had the following growth statistics:

  • Absolute growth rate: 121.8%
  • Compound annual growth rate: 30.4%

Growth on all fronts

Not only did Geotab grow financially between 2017 and 2020, but we also grew in terms of total number of employees. At the end of 2017, we had a total of 597 employees, but by the end of 2020 we had 1,532. Now, in 2022, we have more than 2,000 employees and 100 students with dozens of open roles still looking to be filled across multiple departments. 

 

As Geotab’s CEO, Neil Cawse puts it: “It's an honor to be recognized as one of Americas’ fastest growing companies but it's also important to realize that what got us here — to be able to do this — is the people that work here. It is the amazing people that allow us to grow that in turn allow us to hire more amazing people!”
