APOLLO Insurance named as one of Canada’s fastest-growing start-ups

APOLLO Insurance has made its first appearance in LinkedIn’s Top Canadian Startup List, earning the 13th spot in this year’s rankings.

The recognition follows a successful 2021 for the Vancouver-based insurtech firm, marked by a significant expansion with more than 80 employees added to its workforce. During the period, APOLLO has also continuously invested in building a strong company culture where staff can feel connected and supported despite having to perform their tasks remotely due to the pandemic.

“We are extremely proud to see APOLLO featured in LinkedIn’s 2021 Top Canadian Startups List and recognized as an employer of choice within the start-up world,” said Jeff McCann, founder, president and chief executive officer of APOLLO. “Not only do we aim to be the best partner to our collaborators and employer to our staff and partners, but we also strive to become the go-to destination for businesses and individuals seeking insurance.”

LinkedIn’s 2021 Top Canadian Startups List recognizes emerging companies that are not only recruiting top talent, but also experiencing rapid growth. To come up with the rankings, the professional social networking platform gathered and assessed data using four criteria – employee growth, jobseeker interest, member engagement, and talent acquisition.

“Our internal culture is what unites us and enables us to find the right talent as we build the business,” McCann added. “Living by our core values of candour, adventure, courage, desire, and integrity, whether in meetings or in conversations with our staff and partners, holds us all accountable to them. They inform every decision and that's worked out really well for us when hiring new talent.”
