Victoria, BC, May 2, 2019: Crowd Content Media, a leading content writing service helping businesses create content at any scale, shared today that it has been selected as a finalist for the Victoria Innovation, Advanced Technology and Entrepreneurship Council’s (VIATEC) Scale-Up of the Year Award.
The 19th annual VIATEC Awards recognize technology companies based in Victoria, BC that are excelling in their spaces and contributing to the growth of the tech industry in the region.
The Scale-Up of the Year award is focused on highlighting established companies in the Greater Victoria tech scene that are rapidly scaling operations and revenue.
“I’m thrilled to be recognized as a finalist for the Scale-Up of the Year award,” said Crowd Content CEO Clayton Lainsbury. “We did a ton of work in 2018 to drive 48% revenue growth compared to 2017, and it’s really rewarding to be recognized by our peers for those results. We’ve been active in the VIATEC community since Crowd Content was founded in 2010. We support their goal of growing the tech industry in Victoria, and it’s just a tremendous honour to have them recognize us with this nomination.”
Asked to comment on what was most interesting about his firm’s scale up, Lainsbury stated it’s that the growth has been diversified. “I think the best part of our growth in 2018 was that you can chalk it up to many different factors. Our self-serve marketplace brought on a lot of new clients and added some great new features that helped clients scale their content creation. On the enterprise side of our business, we started working with multiple Fortune 500 companies and saw year-over-year revenue growth of 230%. I’m really proud of these accomplishments, and I’m even prouder that every member of our team contributed to them.”
