Eight VentureLabs firms make ‘Ready to Rocket’ lists
Simon Fraser University VentureLabs® companies PHEMI Health Systems, Lungpacer Medical and Semios were selected from more than 300 candidates Feb. 26 for this year’s 13th annual Ready-to-Rocket list of private B.C. technology companies with the greatest potential for growth in 2015.
The list’s creator, Vancouver tech consulting firm Rocket Builders, has also named five other VentureLabs companies to its Emerging Rockets list of tech companies to watch in the years ahead.
The lists have proven to be accurate predictors of private companies that will likely experience significant growth, venture capital investment and/or acquisition by a major player in the coming year. They are the only such predictive lists in North America, requiring months of sectoral and company analysis. The lists cover three different technology sectors: Information and Communications Technology, Cleantech and Life Science.
