SmartONE, a Markham, ON-based provider of smart home technologies, has won KPMG Canada’s 2022 Tech Innovator competition.

SmartONE beat out 34 other promising Canadian startups to win the top prize. Tech innovation companies were measured against a set of objective criteria and chosen by a panel that included third parties to ensure independence.

“This year's competition was fierce and while all the companies were impressive, the judges concluded that SmartONE stood out from the crowd with their innovative business model," said Sunil Mistry, partner, enterprise and technology, media, and telecommunications, KPMG Canada. "They are taking smart home technology one step further, providing convenience, safety, and security while elevating the community living experience. Their market potential is huge."
