Nine local companies have come out on top in this year’s Zenbooks Smallbiz Awards of Ottawa. 

The finalists were judged by five expert judges, including Kayla Isabelle, CEO of Startup Canada.

“This year’s winners are fuelled with relentless creativity, passion and a commitment to sustainability, which is more important than ever,” said Isabelle. “Coming together to recognize the strength and tenacity of our community is essential to giving business leaders the recognition they deserve, especially in these challenging times. It was an honour to learn about their stories as a judge.”
