(TSXV: RIWI) (OTC: RWCRF) (the “Company” or “RIWI”), a global trend-tracking and prediction technology firm, is honored to receive Deloitte’s Companies-to-Watch award that spotlights companies exhibiting a strong growth profile and innovation. The program celebrates Canada’s fast-growing technology, media, and telecommunications companies.
