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 Eastern Ontario Business Journal is celebrating local businesses that are on the fast track to eye-popping revenues with its first annual Fastest Growing Companies competition.
The competition is a unique opportunity for local enterprises to be recognized for substantial, sustainable and profitable growth.
After two years of COVID slowdowns, this festive season is extra special for local business owners and vendors like the Mehra family.
If your product’s design contributes to its value proposition, you need to protect it to stay profitable. Smart & Biggar explains why.
EOBJ is seeking companies headquartered in Eastern Ontario (in the counties of Renfrew; Frontenac; Leeds & Grenville; Lanark; Prescott & Russell; Stormont, Dundas & Glengarry) 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
- Visibility: Share your story with EOBJ’s readers
- Publicity: Be profiled in EOBJ’s fall newsmagazine
- Recognition: Be showcased among the city’s leading businesses at an upcoming event.
