Our Story

9 years in the market creating amazing mobile and web apps

We are a tight-knit team, in search for the latest standards.

Established in 2011, Guaraná Technologies is a top mobile app development agency based in Canada, with offices in Montreal and Toronto. Although we specialize in building native iOS and Android applications, building over 40 apps every year has equipped our talented team of engineers and app developers with in-depth expertise in many new technologies such as Swift, Kotlin, React Native, IoT, Beacons, Apple Pay, Apple Watch, and tablets, among others.
We have built over 147 mobile apps that have acquired over 31 million users combined.

We also have been named one of the Top Application Development Agencies in Canada by Clutch for 3 years straight. We hold ourselves to our ranking by doing more than just developing smart, scalable apps, but also providing full mentoring and guidance for our clients throughout the development process.

We help innovative companies bring amazing software projects to life.

From helping clients define the scope of the project to launching and maintaining the app, we take the time to understand what our clients are trying to achieve and make sure that they have everything they need to succeed.

Why Guaraná?

Guaraná is a tropical fruit commonly found in Brazil, where the company was officially founded. It’s an unique fruit full of purposes and folcloric meanings. Among certain tribes, it’s believed to be the eyes of a visionary entity due to the fruit’s shape resemblance to a human eye, which would bless the tribes with unique vision and guidance.

Not that different from its folcloric tales, we too serve as the eyes that’ll guide companies and entrepreneurs through their digital product development journey, always mentoring and serving as advisors during the whole process.

Curiously enough, Guaraná is a climbing plant part of the maple family. No wonder the company established its headquarters with the best app developers in its cousin’s land – Canada.
