Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada – Kognitiv Spark announced today they have been recognized as one of 13 businesses from Atlantic Canada who have been named as finalists for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2021 Atlantic program.
Each year, EY recognizes unstoppable entrepreneurs across the country that are transforming our world through unbounded innovation, growth, and prosperity. Today, judges named 13 businesses as finalists in the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2021 Atlantic program.
“I am blown away by the resilience and agility shown by this year’s finalists,” says Gina Kinsman, EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Atlantic Program Co-Director. “Even amid today’s challenging business environment, they’ve seized new opportunities to cut through the noise and accelerate growth, while remaining committed to creating long-term value that benefits their employees, stakeholders, and broader communities.”
Consistent with the findings from the EY Global Capital Confidence Barometer, new vulnerabilities and unforeseen challenges brought on by the pandemic do not appear to be slowing these entrepreneurs down. Atlantic finalists are a true representation of how dynamic the market is — with some players emerging in new industries, others evolving mature industries, and some diversifying current business models to withstand tough market pressures.
“What is truly amazing is that through all the inevitable highs and lows of building something like Kognitiv Spark, we never wavered on the difference we want to make in fieldwork. I couldn’t be more proud of our entire team, partners, and customers,” said Yan Simard, CEO at Kognitiv Spark. “We’re collectively demonstrating shared commitment, vision, and leadership every day. I can’t wait to see what we’ll achieve together.”
