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.
