TORONTO--(Marketwired - Jun 7, 2013) - After debuting in 13th position in Techvibes' quarterly ranking of Canadian startups in April, Digital Journal has moved up and now ranks 11th out of the Top 100 Canadian startups.

"It's great to see Digital Journal move upward on Techvibes' Canadian Startup Index," said Chris Hogg, CEO of Digital Journal Inc.

The company's proprietary digital media platform also continues to get smarter, boasting the ability to segment content creators and influencers by rank, subject matter expertise and geography.

"We launched a major redesign, we've brought on a number of great brand partners and we are about to inject some very unique content marketing products into the media space. We're aiming to deliver the shot in the arm the media industry has been waiting for."

In addition to growth, the company has also added more talent to its senior leadership team who have been building products that pave the way for future international growth.
