The Markham-based smart home tech company will represent Canada in the Global Tech Innovator competition this November.

A proptech company based in Markham has raised the bar for the innovation hub.

SmartONE Solutions Inc., which has been based in Markham for five years, was named Canada’s 2022 Tech Innovator. The proptech company will now compete against winners from 21 other countries at the fierce Global Tech Innovator competition this November in Lisbon. 

SmartONE shared the exciting news on LinkedIn: “We promise to give it our all and make the Canadian tech industry proud!”

Proptech (property technology) is the use of information technology to help individuals and companies research, buy, sell and manage real estate. SmartONE works to make life easier for residents and property managers by connecting smart homes within building units to the wider community, allowing residents to perform tasks such as control access to building entrances, view common-area cameras, enable EV charging, activate car shares and smart parking and facilitate package delivery.

A panel of judges chose SmartONE from 35 promising startups from across Canada. The judges concluded that SmartONE stood out from the crowd with their innovative business model.

“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.”

“We are honoured to be named KPMG Private Enterprise Tech Innovator in Canada,” says Ted Maulucci, SmartONE’s co-founder and president. “We are excited to represent Canada at Web Summit and share our business solution with a global audience.”

This year, the competition expanded to include 22 countries from around the world. The Global Tech Innovator competition recognizes the top talent in the tech innovation space. In Canada, the initiative was led by KPMG’s Enterprise Practice and received applicants from across the country with innovations that addressed a unique business challenge through their solutions.
