PROFIT Magazine makes its call for entries

TORONTO, Feb. 25 /CNW/ – “When I launched my first business,” says Dragons’ Den’s Robert Herjavec, “I had two goals in mind: to survive, and to make the PROFIT 100 ranking.” Herjavec, CEO of The Herjavec Group, achieved both. So did Mike Lazaridis and Jim Balsillie of Research in Motion, Clive Beddoe of WestJet Airlines and Tony Lacavera of Wind Mobile and Globalive Communications.

These CEOs understood the benefits of participating in Canada’s most exciting business ranking and awards program. Since 1989, the ranking of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies has celebrated the success of the best and brightest companies from all sectors of the economy. Now, in its 23rd year, it’s expanding to give full recognition to 200 of the nation’s most entrepreneurial companies—which is why it has been renamed the PROFIT 200.

Do you manage a fast-growing Canadian company or know someone who does? Then submit a nomination today to the PROFIT 200, the definitive list of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies based on five-year revenue growth. An entry form can be found at

PROFIT will honour Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies in its special June issue and at the ninth annual PROFIT 200 CEO Summit, Canada’s most exclusive and educational event for entrepreneurs.
