Ready to Rocket recognizes top, private British Columbia companies poised for revenue growth

VANCOUVER, BC, March 21, 2013 – Tasktop Technologies (www.tasktop.com), creators of the Eclipse Mylyn open source tools and a leader in Agile ALM integration and productivity today announced it has been named to Ready to Rocket’s Information and Communications Technology (ICT) list for the second year in a row (www.readytorocket.com). The list is comprised of fast growing, private companies in the British Columbia, technology sector.

“Tasktop is committed to growing an industry-changing tech company in British Columbia,” said Mik Kersten, creator or Eclipse Mylyn and CEO of Tasktop. “Last year was great one for the company, and it’s fantastic to see our employees recognized by Ready to Rocket for their hard work as we plan for an even bigger 2013.”

Tasktop plays a vital role in the information technology industry. It solves a major challenge for enterprises who increasingly have to deliver software as a core activity of what they do through its tools and platforms that integrate the data flow between disparate people, processes and technologies. One of the hottest companies in the software development sector, it is self-funded and continues to grow organically. It currently has more than 50 employees working in offices in Vancouver, Austin, Texas and throughout Europe. Tasktop has received a variety of awards recognizing its success and innovation, including a spot on Ready to Rocket’s 2012 ICT list and a Technology Impact Award for Emerging Company of the Year in 2012 (www.bctia.org).

The Ready to Rocket lists require several months of detailed analysis. These unique, predictive compilations analyze trends and select companies positioned to exceed industry growth rates. Businesses on the 2012 ICT list saw a median growth rate of 50 percent, proving the research integrity. Aside from the ICT list, Ready to Rocket also compiles a Cleantech list and a Life Sciences list.

“Each year when we choose the Ready to Rocket companies, we are looking for those companies that have best matched technical innovation with market opportunity,” said Reg Nordman, Managing Partner at Rocket Builders. “Tasktop is an excellent example of the right technology for the right customers at the right time.”

The ICT list was revealed to more than 100 investors, government officials, lawyers and accountants at an event at the Library Square Conference Centre in Vancouver, BC on March 12, 2013.
