Rewind Named One of Canada’s Top Growing Companies!

Leading SaaS backup firm achieves 1113% revenue growth in three years.

Rewind has placed No. 49 on the 2020 Report on Business ranking of Canada’s Top Growing Companies. Canada’s Top Growing Companies ranks Canadian companies on three-year revenue growth. Rewind earned its spot with three-year growth of 1113%.

Rewind is on a mission to protect the cloud data used by small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) everyday.  Software-as-a-Service platforms like Quickbooks, Shopify, Xero and Trello do not backup and protect all the information stored within them. These cloud tools only protect their software and infrastructure; meaning SMBs have little control over the data they rely on for critical decisions. Human error, cyber attacks or other software integrations can easily compromise or erase data. 

 In the 2020 Ecommerce Data Protection Survey Report, authored by Rewind, one in four businesses stated they had been the victims of data loss, immediately impacting their sales and operations. It’s this need to protect the vital data which SMBs depend on, which is driving the significant growth of Rewind.

 “According to Crunchbase there are over 16,000 SaaS applications in the world, we believe the opportunity for growth is practically limitless,” said Mike Potter, CEO & Co-Founder of Rewind. “We are constantly onboarding top talent from across North America to build more data protection tools, across all verticals.” 

Launched in 2019, the Canada’s Top Growing Companies editorial ranking aims to celebrate entrepreneurial achievement in Canada by identifying and amplifying the success of growth-minded, independent businesses in Canada. It is a voluntary program; companies had to complete an in-depth application process in order to qualify. In total, 400 companies earned a spot on this year’s ranking.  

The full list of 2020 winners, and accompanying editorial coverage, is published in the October issue of Report on Business magazine—out now—and online at 

“The stories of Canada’s Top Growing Companies are worth telling at any time, but are especially relevant in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic,” says James Cowan, Editor of Report on Business magazine. “As businesses work to rebuild the economy, their resilience and innovation make for essential reading.”

“Any business leader seeking inspiration should look no further than the 400 businesses on this year’s Report on Business ranking of Canada’s Top Growing Companies,” says Phillip Crawley, Publisher and CEO of The Globe and Mail. “Their growth helps to make Canada a better place, and we are proud to bring their stories to our readers.”
