CrowdRiff Named a Skift Top Travel Startup to Watch for 2019

TORONTO – JUNE 20, 2019 – Today CrowdRiff, an AI-powered visual content marketing platform for travel brands, was selected as a Skift Top Travel Startup to Watch for 2019. This annual listing from the leading travel industry media company highlights organizations around the world that are innovating in the travel space.

This is the latest recognition for CrowdRiff. Over the past year, the company was also named one of Canada’s Top 100 Small & Medium Employers and the Top Canadian Tech Startup at the 2018 Metabridge X event. CrowdRiff also made the 2018 list of Canada’s Best Workplaces™ for Millennials and was included in the 2018 Startup 50 ranking of Canada’s Top New Growth Companies. CrowdRiff also earned a spot on the 2018 list of Best Workplaces in Technology by Great Place to Work®; and named on the 2019 list of Best Workplaces™ for Women. These awards follow CrowdRiff’s announcement last fall that it raised $9 million USD in a Series A funding round led by Leaders Fund, a Toronto and Atlanta based venture capital firm that primarily invests in enterprise SaaS platforms.

On November 8-9, 2019, CrowdRiff will be hosting its inaugural travel marketing conference, SEE19, in Toronto.
