The Canadian Innovation Exchange has named the Canadian startups chosen as its top 20 innovative companies for 2018.

Companies are chosen by a selection committee made up of technology industry experts and investors from across the country. The CEO of each CIX Top 20 company will present at CIX 2018 on October 22 to 23, and pitch to a crowd of over 700 investors and tech peers.

CEOs and founders of CIX Top 20 companies will be also invited to open the TMX market on October 1, alongside other key players in the CIX community.
