(KITCHENER, ONTARIO, November 18, 2020) Bonfire Interactive Ltd. (“Bonfire”), a subsidiary of GTY Technology Holdings Inc. and a leader in strategic sourcing and procurement software, has been presented the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 program award for its rapid revenue growth, entrepreneurial spirit, and bold innovation. The program recognizes Canada’s 50 fastest-growing technology companies with the highest revenue-growth percentage over the past four years. Bonfire ranks no. 30 with a 649 percent increase in revenue growth from 2016 to 2019.

The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 program winners consist of public and private companies in the technology sector, which have transformed the industry. Now in its 23rd year, the program runs alongside the broader Deloitte North American Technology Fast 500, with winners automatically eligible for this elite ranking.

“It’s an honor to be recognized as one of Deloitte’s Technology Fast 50 companies, and it wouldn’t have been possible without two important groups,” said Corry Flatt, CEO of Bonfire. “First, our team, whose energy and agility was the driving force behind our rapid revenue growth. Second, our clients, who trusted us with the important work of bringing government procurement online, especially in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. This award confirms what we already knew — that we are fortunate to work with some of the most talented people in Canada, and North America, to transform government procurement.” 

“This year’s Fast 50 winners should be especially proud of this designation, as their role in the fabric of Canadian business—particularly during these turbulent times—is crucial,” said Erica Pretorius, partner and national leader for the Technology Fast 50 program at Deloitte Canada. “Their bold vision and true commitment to innovation allow them to not only improve today’s world, but also shape tomorrow’s, despite the constant uncertainty. This year’s winners are proving themselves resilient, innovative, and adaptable, all in an unpredictable year defined by economic instability and the continuing public health crisis.”

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.
