Invest Ottawa Announces Rising Stars Ahead of Global Entrepreneurship Week

by Techvibes NewsDesk

This week Invest Ottawa announced Ottawa's 2013 Rising Stars as part of Global Entrepreneurship Week Ottawa, which is November 18 to 24.

Global Entrepreneurship Week is an annual celebration of innovators and risk-takers around the world.

Some of this year's Ottawa honourees are Sandy Ahluwalia of Secureship, Shahzad Khan of Gnowit, and Mehran Talebinejad of NeuroQore.

Invest Ottawa describes these honourees as "the force of change, visionary leaders who are involved in their community and demonstrate entrepreneurial spirit, integrity and sound leadership."

“They are our neighbours and friends who are finding better ways of doing things," says Bruce Lazenby CEO of Invest Ottawa. "They are risk-takers who prefer to create a job rather than find a job. Ultimately, they are the people who are responsible for driving economic growth within our city.”

“Global Entrepreneurship Week is our opportunity to provide entrepreneurs the well-deserved recognition for taking a risk to make a difference and create change,” stated Kevin Carroll, Managing Director of Innovation at Invest Ottawa. “It’s also a great way to bring the entrepreneurial support ecosystem together to explore opportunities to work together in order to promote entrepreneurial growth.”
