“ATB Ventures is honoured to be recognized as an organization that is best in class in fostering a culture that is conducive to innovation,” says Sue McGill, SVP of ATB Ventures. “As the pace of change pushes every company towards an inflection point where every aspect of their business model is being challenged, creating the right conditions to enable organizations to take positions on innovative technologies that are unproven is a necessity.”

“These leaders and teams created cultures of innovation and sustained them, even as remote work extended into 2021,” says Stephanie Mehta, editor-in-chief of Fast Company. “This newest list of the Best Workplaces for Innovators honors those organizations that found ways to collaborate and invent despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, ensuring employees were at the forefront.”
