Canadian Start-Ups Look Forward to 2013

There are a number of Canadian tech start-ups which look set to have an excellent year.

One such company is Lightspeed. Lightspeed sell software for Apple devices which retailers can use to manage their business and offer in-store services to customers, for instance using an iPad to explain a product to a customer.

Lightspeed has already done business with 10,000 retailers across 30 countries and last October Ernst & Young named Lightspeed CEO Dax Dasilva Quebec Entrepreneur of the Year.

Another company to keep an eye on is Wave Accounting which produces online accounting software and tools.

The software is ideal for small businesses (up to nine employees) and already has close to 500,000 customers. The recently released Wave Payroll, used to handle the payroll online, has already proved itself to be popular.

ScribbleLive is live blogging software which media companies across the world are already using. They are now beginning to offer services to other kinds of companies and marketers.

Last November ScribbleLive won a placement at the federal government’s Canadian Technology Accelerator in Silicon Valley. They look certain to go from strength to strength over the coming months.
