T4G has been purchased for an undisclosed price by national accounting and consulting firm MNP, which wants access to the target company’s expertise in data analytics and machine learning.
Though headquartered in Toronto, T4G is one of the pillars of the Atlantic Canadian tech community with offices in Halifax and Saint John. It was the driving force behind the Big Data Congress, which was a major event in the startup calendar for several years.
Based in Calgary, MNP is one of Canada’s largest national accounting, tax and business consulting firms. It said Monday it is retaining virtually all of T4G’s 100 employees and plans to grow the business, including the teams in Atlantic Canada.
“We’ve been talking to this company for a while,” said T4G Co-Founder and President Geoff Flood in an interview. “We’ve had a lot of suitors over the years and it never felt quite right until about now.”
