Wattpad won Best Overall Canadian Startup of 2011 and last year won Innovator of the Year from PwC. Cofounded by Allen Lau and Ivan Yuen, the company provides a free way for people to read fiction and share creative writing on any type of web and mobile device.

Quantcast is one of several such site ranking services. Others include Alexa and Compete. Last year, SEOmoz compared these services and described the accuracy of Quantcast’s data as “terrible,” noting charts are often “directionally wrong and off by multiple orders of magnitude.”
