In a year that challenged local entrepreneurs like no other in recent memory, Ottawa’s business community showed what it’s truly made of in 2020.
While the pandemic ravaged many sectors of the economy, resiliency proved to be just as much a byword of the past 12 months as masking and physical distancing. Businesses of all stripes across the National Capital Region showed their ability to adapt under incredible circumstances as they navigated through a storm no one could have foreseen.
That get-it-done attitude is clearly reflected in the 2021 list of OBJ’s fastest-growing companies based on revenue growth over the past three years.
A record number of applicants produced an outstanding group of companies that included three firms with three-year growth of more than 1,000 per cent. Equally impressive, this isn’t just a laundry list of tech startups.
