Vancouver's rich talent base, world-class academic institutions and diverse community have made the city a magnet for technology companies of all sizes.
As we prepare to navigate post-COVID-19 economic recovery:
- What opportunities will technology companies create for the local economy?
- What is the broader impact of the technology sector's growth?
- How can technology companies continue to invest in our communities?
These activities will provide access to the guidance and support businesses require to navigate the crisis.
The panel – with representatives from the technology, charitable, academic, and small business sectors - will share different perspectives on the impact of Vancouver’s Tech Hub status.
