Tell us about the Rivercity Tech!

Rivercity Tech is a cybersecurity and risk management company that helps any size business have a professional IT infrastructure and support available to them. Our unique Cyber Risk Assessment allows us to help businesses across Canada understand the data they hold, how much a breach may cost, how much that data is worth and how vulnerable they are to a cyberattack. With this data we can put our services in place to ensure they are protected, as well as being compliant with their cyber insurance policy.

We provide an all-in-one approach to technology by also having a highly talented Software Development division, which allows our clients to utilize us to create powerful applications and automation to help improve their business processes. We also offer Website Design and Hosting, Business Phone Services, and are a Microsoft Silver Partner that is connected with hundreds of other technical partners to lean on to ensure we can find the best solution to any problem.

What impact is your company making in Saskatchewan and beyond?

Over the past 7 years we have helped a number of businesses improve their technology and modernize their way of doing business. With the amount of new tech startups coming through Saskatchewan it is exciting to see how far we have come as a province with technology!

Now, with the serious increase in cyberattacks across the world, being able to pivot focusing on cybersecurity and risk management has given us the opportunity to share this knowledge with businesses in this province and ensure they are educated on the risk to them and their customers.

What is your company’s proudest achievement?

One of the proudest achievements for us was winning the Rural Crime Challenge which led to the creation of Rivercity Innovations and 14 new jobs in the last year. Today both businesses help each other and share office space at Innovation Place.

What’s one thing your company cannot function without?

Great people and lots of coffee! I am beyond proud to have the team that we have.

Are there any Saskatchewan-specific programs or connections that have helped your company?

Innovation Place itself has been a large part of our success. Being in this park, working with other tenants and having so many other great minds to lean on for advice has been invaluable.

Any exciting plans or developments for the future?

We are just about to launch our first SaaS product called Enrolr — this is a program management and registration platform built in mind for any organization that runs youth camps, adult camps, sports camps, before and after care programs and so on. It is highly customizable to make sure that it is tailored to each organization and how they want to utilize the platform. We are very excited to be showing it off at the Boys and Girls Clubs Western Regional Conference at the Bessborough this month!

Why is Innovation Place the right home for your company? (We had to ask!)

We said it above and we’ll say it again!: Innovation Place itself has been a large part of our success. Being in this park, working with other tenants and having so many other great minds to lean on for advice has been invaluable.

Fun fact! Tell us something awesome we should know about your company.

Once a month we have a “Techie Brekkie” down at OEB by the river. It’s great to get out and get together and just enjoy some delicious food!

Also, Mitch co-authored the Amazon best-selling cybersecurity book 16 Strategies You Need To Know To Protect Your Business From Hackers!
