The Faces of Tech

Technology and Innovation is the fastest growing sector in the Province and is driving the economy. The regional tech sector is quietly leaving a lasting impact. In the past three years, tech entrepreneurs in central and northern Vancouver Island have secured $5M in capital investment that increased their revenue by $2M and added 41 new tech jobs to the regional economy, while tech sector growth in the southern Island area continues at an impressive pace. 

 But what does tech look like in the region? Who are these entrepreneurs? Why are they here and what do they need to grow and stay in place? Join panel sponsor Innovation Island at the 2016 Vancouver Island Economic Summit in Nanaimo, BC and hear from a diverse group of tech entrepreneurs about what keeps them here and what communities can do to help accelerate their growth.
