A Vision Critical IPO would be a defining moment for Canadian tech

Vision Critical may be valued at as much as $500-million in what is expected to be the first of a number of hotly anticipated Canadian technology public offerings, reflecting investors’ keen interest in software companies.

The company has yet to file for an initial public offering, but there are numerous signs that it is getting ready. In an interview, chief executive officer Scott Miller said he is working to “showcase the business” after spending the first part of his tenure at the company focusing it on its most successful business line – creating online communities of customers that help companies understand what their clients want.
