StartUp Canada Awards Trulioo

Earlier this week, startup Canada’s Premier Award Program recognized Trulioo for its outstanding achievement in innovation! Startup Canada Awards recognizes and celebrates the next generation of disruptors and innovators that have elevated the standards of success for Canadian entrepreneurship. Presented by Intuit Canada, Trulioo is very proud to be selected as the BC & The North regional winner for the Startup Canada Innovation Award.

“We are incredibly honored to be recognized with the prestigious 2016 Startup Canada Innovation Award,” said Stephen Ufford, CEO of Trulioo. “It is an exciting time to be part of the phenomenal growth of Canadian FinTech and playing a key role in helping businesses securely navigate the ever-changing financial regulatory hurdles, while continuing to accelerate innovation forward.”

Trulioo will be presented with the Startup Canada Award monument at The BC & The North Startup Canada Awards ceremony on Monday, October 24, 2016 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm at Scotiabank Dance Centre – Faris Room 677 Davie St, Vancouver, British Columbia V6B 2G6.

The Startup Canada Awards can be likened to the Oscars for the Canadian entrepreneurship community – celebrating and recognizing the individuals, communities and institutions that have demonstrated innovation, excellence, outstanding achievement and impact in advancing Canadian entrepreneurship.

“Through their innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurialism, the 2016 Startup Canada Awards winners are driving impact not just in their local communities but also across Canada and the world,” said Startup Canada CEO Victoria Lennox. “As leaders in the entrepreneurship ecosystem, they are each making Canada a better place to start and scale companies. Thank you and congratulations to all of the nominees and winners. Your accomplishments prove that entrepreneurs can make it in Canada.”

As a regional winner, Trulioo will be pushed forward to the National Adjudication Committee and the national winners will be celebrated at the Startup Canada Awards Grand Finale in Toronto on Nov. 29.

“At Trulioo, our mission is focused around three principles, trust, privacy, and inclusion,” said Ufford. “Being based in Canada, we see these guiding principles as the norm in doing business and would love to help export these universal values to the world. We are truly grateful for this incredible recognition and thank Startup Canada for advancing and celebrating entrepreneurism across the nation.”
