Canada’s Passion Capitalists is a national awards program that celebrates organizations that have achieved long-term success by creating Passion Capital; the energy, intensity, and sustainability needed to generate superior results.
Passion Capitalists are guided by a strong set of values and beliefs that form the basis of a distinctive culture that fuels their performance. They are courageous; often having to overcome significant obstacles. They build strong brands anchored by their culture, which guide their strategies, the people they hire and promote, and the way they operate.
Canada’s Passion Capital awards program was inspired by the award-winning book "Passion Capital” by Paul Alofs, which outlines seven principles for growing and investing in a revolutionary new asset – Passion Capital.
