British Columbia’s business recognition program showcases tomorrow’s revenue growth leaders
(March 29, 2021 – Vancouver, BC) – Tickit Health, a global provider of person reported data collection solutions based on Digital Empathy, announced that it has made the 2021 Emerging Rockets list for the Digital Health sector. Ready to Rocket is a business recognition program that profiles British Columbia technology companies with the greatest potential for revenue growth.
“We’re honored to be recognized in the Ready to Rocket Digital Health category for our growth trajectory,” said Eric Gombrich, CEO, Tickit Health. “Given the majority of our growth is happening outside of BC, and in the wake of being recognized last year as well, I think this speaks not only to our progress at Tickit Health, but the innovation coming out of British Columbia on the world stage.”
2020 was the fourth year for the Digital Health sector list, and it continues to show growth. With over 220 jobs created, it was an interesting year for a developing sector. Some companies accelerated quickly with telehealth and other digital health solutions while others found the year more challenging. Although none of this sector’s companies have graduated or exited, there are indications that the coming years will continue to see a growth for this sector due to the pandemic.
“2020 was an uneven year for Digital Health in British Columbia as there was significant job creation and with some breakthrough companies.” said Geoffrey Hansen, Managing Partner at Rocket Builders. “In the current pandemic crisis, we are seeing a real acceleration in interest in all areas of digital health. In particular, telehealth is observing exponential growth.”
Each year, based on analysis of trends that will drive growth in the technology sector, Rocket Builders identifies the top private companies that are best positioned to capitalize on the trends for growth. This selection methodology has been an accurate predictor of growth and investment milestones. Ready to Rocket companies, on average, have exceeded a 50% annual revenue growth rate and have significantly increased their employee headcount each year.
This is the third time Tickit Health has been recognized by Ready to Rocket. In 2020, Tickit Health was identified as an Emerging Rocket company. Emerging Rockets recognizes BC technology companies that have great potential for investment and market breakthroughs in the coming year. Previously called the “Ones to Watch” list, these companies have commercialized a product and are undergoing early stages of market adoption.
