Jack Hunt named as Ottawa Rising Star during Global Entrepreneurship Week creates a great sense of community that we are all a part of.

Netcelerate is pleased to announce that CEO Jack Hunt was named one of Ottawa’s top entrepreneurs by Invest Ottawa, a local incubator for small businesses. The Award was announced on Friday, November 16th at SIDEDOOR lounge in Ottawa. The award is given in recognition of entrepreneurs who are driving change across all industries and sectors, and who are shining examples of entrepreneurial excellence in Ottawa. Announced on the last night of Global Entrepreneurship Week, Bruce Lazenby raised a glass to an excellent week showcasing the businesses that make up the city of Ottawa.

The true reality of entrepreneurship was expressed during the event. Speakers emphasized that entrepreneurs are not recognized for the hard work they put in at the end of every day, but that they are still continuously hard at work to build their businesses. This award is an acknowledgement to Mr. Hunt, and other entrepreneurs in Ottawa that they truly are appreciated and deserve to be mentioned. Netcelerate, as an organization, is very proud to be a recipient.

“Every week doesn’t end with this sort of recognition, but when organizations such as Invest Ottawa demonstrate this level of support and acknowledgement for local entrepreneurs, it creates a great sense of community that we are all a part of,” says Mr. Hunt. Netcelerate has worked with Invest Ottawa for the past few years, providing a full telephone and internet solution to the organization itself and the businesses within it. As a great closing to a very eventful week, the businesses of Ottawa are still talking about Global Entrepreneurship Week, and the experiences they had during it.
