Fastest Growing Companies 2020

Ottawa Business Journal is once again looking for local businesses that are on the fast track to eye-popping revenues.

OBJ’s Fastest Growing Companies competition is a unique opportunity for Ottawa-based enterprises to be recognized for substantial, sustainable and profitable growth.

The 2019 list was topped by wireless technology firm ROCK Networks, which recorded three-year revenue growth of a whopping 5,035.61 per cent. It was followed by an eclectic list of companies that included IT startup Lightship Security, HR and recruiting firm Keynote Group, which topped the list in 2018, and automobile accessory e-commerce retailer Canada Wheels.

OBJ is seeking companies headquartered in the National Capital Region that have demonstrated substantial revenue growth over the past three years. It doesn’t matter what industry the company is in or whether it’s a startup or a long-standing business.

Applicants will be ranked by percentage of revenue growth between year one and year three of their most recent three-year fiscal period. To qualify, the company must have completed three fiscal years with financial statements that have been subject to a review engagement or formal audit.

In year one, companies must have had revenues of at least $100,000. In year three, revenues must have risen to at least $500,000. If the company is not profitable by the third year, applicants will be asked to briefly explain how the firm will be sustainable.

The companies that make the top-10 list will be profiled in the May issue of OBJ and honoured at a cocktail celebration at allsaints Event Space on Wednesday, May 20.
