On the grow: OBJ seeking Ottawa’s Fastest-Growing Companies

fastest-growing companies 2022

Even as the pandemic continues to wreak havoc with the economy, entrepreneurs across the region are rolling up their sleeves and getting down to work growing a new crop of world-beating companies.

In that spirit, the Ottawa Business Journal is once again celebrating local businesses that are on the fast track to eye-popping revenues with its annual Fastest Growing Companies competition.

The competition is a unique opportunity for local enterprises to be recognized for substantial, sustainable and profitable growth.

Recent recipients in this exclusive – and eclectic – group of recipients include last-mile delivery provider GoFor, skincare product pioneer Bushbalm, e-commerce bug-detection software firm Noibu and homebuilder Highbridge Construction.

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.

Reasons to apply

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.

Companies that make the top 10 will be profiled in the spring issue of OBJ.

The deadline for applications is Feb. 18. If you have further questions, please email OBJ editor David Sali at david@obj.ca.
