Toronto, Canada, September 22, 2008 - Filemobile, a leading social media and networking platform provider, has emerged as one of Canada’s fastest growing companies according to the 9th annual PROFIT HOT 50 ranking.
“We are honored and delighted to be named to the PROFIT HOT 50 list as the eighth emerging growth company in Canada,” said Chris Becker CEO, Filemobile. “As a self-funded company, we recognize the need to manage our growth and yet expand our business quickly to enable customers to take advantage of the tremendous opportunities in the social media space.”
Filemobile provides services and tools for media companies, brands, and digital agencies. It enables clients to collect, manage and monetize content, making it simple to leverage social media and engage customers. Filemobile software powers some of the most popular online campaigns in Canada, including CBC's Canada Hockey Anthem Challenge, a cross-country search calling on all Canadians to be part of hockey history by composing the next theme song for CBC's Hockey Night in Canada.
The result has been the most successful user generated contest in Canadian history. 14,685 songs were submitted for this recently launched project, powered by Filemobile's Media Factory. There have been over 12 million page views, over 600,000 unique visitors, and 1.2 million site visits. Media Factory powers and tracks several other campaigns across the web for clients including:
- CTV – Live the Drama

“The PROFIT HOT 50 companies illustrate the ingenuity and vitality of Canada’s entrepreneurial sector,” said editor Ian Portsmouth. “Anyone who wants to start or grow a business can draw much inspiration and many lessons from the HOT 50.”
