Victoria-based DeeBee’s Organics made the 2019 Startup 50 list with a two-year revenue growth of over 150%.

“The 2019 Startup 50 winners suggest the future of Canadian entrepreneurship is extremely bright. They have brought new offerings to market, created indelible brands and disrupted established business models—all in an extremely short period of time,” says Beth Fraser, Startup 50 and Growth 500 program manager. “Any aspiring entrepreneur should look to their stories for inspiration.”

“It’s incredible to be recognized as one of Canada’s Top New Growth Companies,” says Dr. Dionne Laslo-Baker, CEO & Founder of DeeBee’s Organics. “We have come a long way since I first began product testing with my family at home and nearly cracked my teeth!”

Dr. Laslo-Baker is a PhD Medical Researcher who originally created DeeBee’s Organics to ensure her family had clean-label, organic treats made with the highest quality ingredients.  Launched in late 2013, DeeBee’s Organics is now a notable Canadian startup success story, and Dr Laslo-Baker has been recognized as a one of Canada’s most up-and-coming female CEOs.

“Now that our products are sold across two countries, it’s amazing to know that I can go somewhere I’ve never been before and find DeeBee’s on a grocery shelf there. I’m excited to grow forward with our passionately dedicated team, who were an integral part of this achievement.”
