We’ve just nicely settled into the new year ​– which means it’s time to start searching for the next cohort of young business leaders making a difference and building companies in the National Capital Region.

Nominations are open now for the 2021 Forty Under 40 awards, an annual tradition sponsored by the Ottawa Business Journal and the Ottawa Board of Trade that recognizes young business achievers.

This year marks the 24th edition of the prestigious event, which has honoured more than 800 noteworthy business leaders since its inception. The 2020 class included recipients such as Solon Angel, founder of rising artificial intelligence firm MindBridge Ai, well-known tech marketing guru Erin Blaskie and the National Gallery of Canada’s Sasha Suda.

Nominate yourself, a friend, spouse or a colleague for recognition at this year’s celebration. Recipients also receive access to networking events and promotions reserved for the Forty Under 40 community.

In order to be eligible, nominees must:

  • Be 39 years or younger on June 30, 2021;
  • Spend the majority of their work time in Ottawa-Gatineau;
  • Be an owner, executive, manager, professional or person with significant business decision-making authority.

Preference is given to nominees who work in the private sector; however, nominees can also work for a public or non-profit organization. In all cases, nominees will be assessed on demonstrated business-related achievements that advance the goals and objectives of their organization.

Nominations are open until March 26. Click here to read more about the process and submit your nomination today.
