Canadian Business and PROFIT today ranked Montreal-based FixMeStick Technologies, Inc. No. 9 on the 29th annual PROFIT 500, the definitive ranking of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies. The PROFIT 500 ranks Canadian businesses by their five-year revenue growth.
FixMeStick made the 2017 PROFIT 500 list with five-year revenue growth of 6,471%.
“It feels good to have built a product and company that helps people,” says CEO Marty Algire. “Being near the top of the PROFIT 500 list is very nice, and helping people clean their computers of malware infections has been rewarding.”
Montreal internet security veterans and entrepreneurs, Marty Algire and Corey Velan, started FixMeStick in 2011 with the desire to provide consumers with a simple way to clean viruses from their computers at home. They invented the FixMeStick® virus removal device, a USB key that removes malware conventional antivirus software often can’t detect.
Almost 1 million customers have purchased a FixMeStick®, and it can be found in national retailers and on home shopping networks in Canada, the U.S. and the U.K. It’s the world’s best-selling virus removal device. The FixMeStick is available for both PCs and Macs.
