The Fast 40 program represents the ones to watch in business in Hamilton. This unique ‘made in Hamilton’ initiative was created as part of the City’s 2016-2020 Economic Development Action Plan. The Action Plan identifies a “stretch target” that aims to have 10 Hamilton based businesses listed on ‘The Growth 500’, Canadian Business Magazine’s 500 Fastest Growing Businesses.
