A Markham-based property technology company that’s taking smart home technology “one step further” has been named KPMG in Canada’s 2022 Tech Innovator.
SmartONE will travel to Lisbon, Portugal in November to compete against winners from 21 other countries for the title of KPMG Private Enterprise Global Tech Innovator.
Created 15 years ago with a vision to disrupt the way communities are built, SmartONE’s work is designed to life easier for residents and property managers by connecting smart homes within building units to the wider community. Residents can, for example, perform tasks like control access to building entrances, view common area cameras, enable electrical vehicle charging, activate car shares and smart parking, and facilitate package delivery.
“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,” says Sunil Mistry, Partner, Enterprise and Technology, Media and Telecommunications, KPMG in 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.”
KPMG LLP is a full-service audit, tax and advisory firm owned and operated by Canadians. The Global Tech Innovator competition recognizes the top talent in the tech innovation space.
In Canada, semi-finalists were chosen as contestants to pitch at one of three regional finals. One from each final was invited to present its innovations at the national finals, with the winner moving on to compete at the global finals.
“We are honoured to be named KPMG Private Enterprise Tech Innovator in Canada,” says SmartONE Co-founder and President Ted Maulucci. “We competed against some of Canada’s top tech start-ups and have been recognized as one of the best of the best. Thank you to KPMG for the opportunity and support throughout the process.
