Emagin received the regional Startup Canada Innovation award, presented by Intuit QuickBooks in Mississauga. As a proud winner of the sixth annual Startup Canada Awards, the entire Emagin team is thrilled to celebrate outstanding achievement in Canada’s entrepreneurship and innovation community across Canada.

“It's both humbling and exciting to be recognized as one of Canada’s top startups,” said Thouheed Abdul Gaffoor, CEO and co-founder of Emagin. “We’re especially proud to represent the burgeoning AI hub in the Toronto-Waterloo corridor as we continue to disrupt the utility and industrial water sectors on a global stage.”

“Congratulations to all our 2019 Startup Canada winners,” said Anastasia Valentine, Chief Executive Director of Startup Canada. “We are honoured to recognize vibrant entrepreneurs and disruptors across Canada. Each recipient is highly contributing to build our nation’s economy and to strengthen the entrepreneurial and innovation ecosystem. It makes me proud to celebrate the talent and achievements of every one of our winners. Thank you for being community builders, and role models for future generations.”

“We look forward to continuing to grow our impact,” said Emma Weisbord, marketing lead at Emagin, “and build a future in which the essential services that support our societies - water, energy, food - are accessible, safe, and affordable for everyone, everywhere.”

Regional winners will now be evaluated by the National Adjudication Committee; comprised of some of Canada’s leading entrepreneurship and industry experts. The national winners will be announced and celebrated at the Startup Canada Awards Grand Finale in Toronto in October 2019.

The Startup Canada Awards can be likened to the Oscars for the Canadian entrepreneurship community. The awards celebrate and recognize individuals, communities, and institutions that demonstrate innovation, excellence, outstanding achievement, and impact in advancing entrepreneurship in Canada:

  • Celebrate those working to advance entrepreneurship in Canada;
  • Increase awareness of the importance of strengthening Canada’s entrepreneurship ecosystem and culture; and,
  • Incentivize efforts and elevate the ambitions of the Canadian entrepreneurial and innovation community.
