VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 09, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mojio, the leading open platform for connected cars, received a Companies-to-Watch award that recognizes early-stage companies with strong growth potential. As part of the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 program, the Companies-to-Watch Award category honours Canadian technology companies that demonstrate promising potential to be a future Technology Fast 50 candidate. Mojio’s CEO, Kenny Hawk, credits their early stage success on his team’s ability to deliver best-in-class connected car solutions on time, on budget and with “carrier-grade” quality for customers including Rogers and TELUS in Canada, T-Mobile in the US and Deutsche Telekom in Europe.
When asked about the award, Hawk said, “As a high-growth B2B2C company, it is crucial that we not only design and deliver connected car experiences that end customers love to use but also with the reliability that our carrier customers count on. Key to making that happen is nurturing a fun, high-performance culture that accelerates careers and rewards success. As a Canadian company, we’re proud to acknowledge our role in shaping the future of mobility from our headquarters in Vancouver, BC. We’re thrilled that Deloitte has recognized this innovation and is with us in celebration of Mojio’s success.”Companies-to-watch winners are a class of companies that possess effective management experience and superior technology.
