As many of you may already know, Beanstalk is based out of Victoria, BC, Canada. Victoria is a fairly sleepy city of around 335,000 people (including suburbs, leaving about 74k in the actual metropolitan area) . As such it’s always nice to see a local company “make good” and it appears that there’s yet another company added into the mix of top tech firms now.
For some reason (probably the fact that Victoria is one of the few Canadian cities that doesn’t really get snow in the winter) there seems to be a disproportionate number of geeks here (ironic since we’re the ones who spend the least amount of time outside).
While reading the Young Entrepreneur Awards list I ran across the winner for BC which is none other than Neverblue Media Inc. As the writeup describes:
Neverblue Media uses ads placed on websites to capture likely candidates for its clients’ services. For each person it sends along who actually completes a transaction, which can be as simple as filling in an application, Neverblue gets a fee …
As an SEO firm that offers a guarantee we love to see this kind of thing.
So kudos to Neverblue on winning the Young Entrepreneurs Award. It a prestigious award and from what I can tell, well deserved. Any business that find success only when their clients do wins top marks with me.
You can read about their services and more about the company at http://www.neverbluemedia.com/.
Other prominent Internet firms out of this tiny town include:
- Beanstalk Search Engine Positioning, Inc. (SEO)
- StepForth, Inc. (SEO)
- Metamend (SEO)
- ACD Systems (Imaging Software)
- Just to name a few.
No wonder tech is the second largest sector in the city after tourism (even above government which is amazing given that Victoria is the capital of the province
