Ankit

Canadian Business and PROFIT today named You.i TV to the 28th annual PROFIT 500, placing #15 on the list with 4453% growth over the past five years. This is the fourth consecutive year You.i TV has placed on the list, and is a significant jump from last year’s #65 position.

Companies become a part of the PROFIT 500 through innovative thinking, smart strategy and sheer grit,

says James Cowan, Editor-in-chief of PROFIT and Canadian Business.

These firms demonstrate what Canadian entrepreneurs can achieve, both at home and across the globe.

Jason Flick, CEO of You.i TV, had this to say regarding our placement in this year’s PROFIT 500 list.

It’s always an honour to be recognized among some of Canada’s leading companies. This recognition of our growth, combined with our recent customer announcements and round of funding, is an exciting reminder of how far we’ve come.

You.i TV announced earlier this week that they have secured a $12M USD round of funding led by Time Warner Investments, with participation from Vistara Capital, a Vancouver-based fund. They also recently announced that their product, You.i Engine, is powering CFL’s newly released mobile application on iOS and Android, adding CFL to a client list that includes Corus Entertainment, shomi, Sony Crackle and multiple brands for Turner, notably TBS, TNT and FilmStruck.
