The Narwhal List is a compilation of Canada’s fastest scaling private tech companies. We compile companies based on their financial velocity, or the amount of funding a firm has raised over the number of years it has been in existence. If a company wants to scale to world class it will need to acquire significant investment capital. The more it acquires, the more it can grow. And the faster it can acquire capital, the faster it can grow (you can read more on this in our report The Rich Get Richer). So financial velocity is a way to track private companies who are trying to scale to world class size.

We have recently updated the list with data up to July 9, 2018 and are excited to include three new companies to the list. You can view the full list here.
