Eligible companies are headquartered in the National Capital Region and can demonstrate significant year-over-year revenue growth over a three-year period.
Applicants will be ranked by percentage revenue growth between year one and year three of their most recent three-year fiscal period. The company must have completed three fiscal years with financial statements that have been subject to a review engagement or formal audit to qualify.
In year one, companies must have revenue of at least $100,000. In year three, revenues must have risen to at least $500,000. Companies that are unprofitable in the last of the three years will be asked to explain how they’re sustainable.
Applications must include name and contact information for the company’s external auditor/accountant, whom OBJ may contact to verify results.
The recipient companies will be profiled in a special feature in the May issue of OBJ. (OBJ will not publish or otherwise disclose specific dollar revenue figures, only percentage increases.) And, in partnership with the Ottawa Board of Trade, recipients will be feted at a cocktail celebration on May 23 at co-working space Head Office Ottawa.
The deadline for submissions is April 1, 2019.
