TORONTO — September 26, 2022 — Top Hat, the leading dynamic courseware platform for higher education, is delighted to announce it has been named to the Globe and Mail’s Top Growing Companies listing for the second year in a row. Launched in 2019, Canada’s Top Growing Companies program celebrates entrepreneurial achievement and the success of high growth organizations shaping the future of Canadian business. 

“Our growth is a direct reflection of Top Hatters’ commitment to transforming the learning experience for millions of college and university students across North America,” said Joe Rohrlich, CEO of Top Hat. “We believe in the power of higher education to change lives and I want to thank our incredible team for continuing to empower educators to do just this by delivering personalized, meaningful and equitable learning in every course.”
