About the Program

For the past 15 years, the Fast Growth 50 program has been the most prominent ranking of Albertan businesses with significant growth in revenue, assets, capital expenditures and employees over a three-year period. Produced by Alberta Venture magazine with the assistance of KPMG, this program is one of the most recognized business rankings in the province.

Listen to the Fast Growth 50 podcast with KPMG’s Dan Adams:

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Ray Muzyka, Co-founder, BioWare and Founder & CEO, Threshold Impact

Gain insight from his keynote speech

“The Best Practices in Entrepreneurial Leadership”

Dr. Muzyka will share his insight and build on the lessons he has learned in his two decades as co-founder and CEO of BioWare and in his angel investing and entrepreneurial mentorship work at ThresholdImpact.

Originally trained as a medical doctor, Dr. Ray Muzyka co-founded BioWare, a video game development studio focusing on story and character, in the early 1990s. He practiced Emergency/Family Medicine for two years full time, with medicine transitioning to part-time over the following eight years as he focused on his role as BioWare’s CEO. BioWare was acquired by Electronic Arts in 2007 and Ray took on the role of General Manager of EA’s BioWare division, which grew over the next five years to span eight locations worldwide with 2000 employees (1400 full time).

He retired from video games in October 2012, with his third ‘career chapter’ at ThresholdImpact focused on sustainable, profitable impact investing, mentoring and angel investing in information technology, new media and medical innovations with social entrepreneurs. He is an active angel investor and entrepreneurial mentor.
