GoBolt’s 2267% growth from 2018 to 2021 earned the company the 14th position on the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 and the 74th position on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500
TORONTO, November 23, 2022 — GoBolt, a technology company building the first sustainable, vertically integrated supply chain network, received recognition as part of the 2022 Deloitte Technology Fast 50™ awards program for its rapid revenue growth, entrepreneurial spirit, and bold Innovation. Celebrating its 25th anniversary, the program recognizes Canada’s 50 fastest-growing technology companies based on the highest revenue-growth percentage over the past four years. GoBolt ranks 14th with a 2267% in revenue growth from 2018 to 2021.
GoBolt also ranked 74th on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, fintech, and energy tech companies in North America, now in its 28th year.
GoBolt’s Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Mark Ang, credits the company’s proprietary technology, vertically integrated model and ambitious sustainability objectives with the company’s growth. Ang said, “The last few years have shown brands and retailers want a more unified logistics stack. The industry is filled with thousands of single point solutions and GoBolt aims to change that by offering a sustainable, end-to-end logistics solution supported by our own technology. We have always looked at each decision through the lens of whether it makes life simpler for our customer and that has led us to where we are today. Earlier this year we expanded into the U.S. market and we are looking forward to continuing to grow our fulfillment network and electric vehicle fleet as we get closer to reaching our goal of offering carbon negative deliveries by the end of 2023.”
To qualify for the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 ranking, companies must have been in business for at least four years, have revenues of at least $5 million, 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.
“It’s inspiring how this year’s exceptional cohort of Technology Fast 50 winners have delivered outstanding revenue growth even in the face of prevailing uncertainties in the economy and marketplace,” commented Anders McKenzie, partner and national leader for the Technology Fast 50 program at Deloitte Canada. “Fueled by exemplary innovation, creativity, resilience, adaptability, along with superior business leadership, these companies are paving the way as catalysts in their respective sectors and delivering growth and value to the Canadian economy both at home and beyond.”
Deloitte’s Fast 500 also highlighted how technology must keep pace with ever-changing consumer and corporate demands, with the 2022 cohort demonstrating faster, safer and more efficient solutions to today’s societal challenges.
