“Good evening and thank you to the Team at the Burlington Economic Development Corporation for awarding us this year’s winner of the Excellence in Innovation and Technology award.”
“I am very proud of the family-based and diverse culture we have been able to grow in Burlington. We went from 8 employees to 53 in 4 short years. We are now looking global and have a few employees based in US and we are looking in Europe. Most of our technologies are sold outside of Canada, even though we have installations here in Ontario.”
“I would like to send a heartfelt thank you to all of our employees who continue to strive and push our company forward. Congratulations to you on this well deserved award. You have clearly earned it.” – Demetrius Tsafaridis, CEO and President of CareGo Tek
This virtual event started with a virtual cocktail hour at your virtual table, a new and interesting technological option which brought us together like we were at the event, hosted by Our Forte.

Congratulations to the Chamber and Our Forte for pulling together this event in a new and exciting format, it was an enjoyable evening for all.
