Having lived in Toronto for the past eight years, I have found that the city is home to many interesting people, organizations, and events. I wanted to take a look at some of the companies that have made it to the top of the Canadian tech scene. I decided to start with VentureBeat. This startup was founded in 2008 and has since raised more than 73 million dollars in venture capital. Its founders are based in Toronto, Canada and are known for their involvement with philanthropy and business.
