The Picks Are In For PwC’s 2013 Vision To Reality Awards

For the first time, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) has announced its shortlist of Top 20 Canadian tech companies, in preparation for its 11th annual Vision to Reality awards.

2013 marks a strong showing for British Columbia, with a particularly high ratio of BC tech firms in PwC’s mix. It’s a group that UrtheCast is proud to be a part of, as we join the likes of BC companies like D-Wave Systems, in addition to other well-known brands like Montreal’s Frank&Oak.

V2R describes its annual event and awards as a celebration of what Canada’s technology sector has to offer, while it aims to highlight driven tech companies on their way to the top of their industry.

As you might expect from a tech event, the PwC awards came out of the gates this year with a strong social media presence, so you can easily follow along with the hashtag #V2R.

Each of the Top 20 finalists will be vetted for the Top 10 list by the PwC judges in a session to be held on Oct 9. An awards ceremony will follow only a month later on Nov. 9, with the whole event culminating in a 400-500 person conference set to take place in April of 2014 in Toronto.
