B.C.’s tech sector is more than a driver of economic growth: it has been praised as a highly collaborative ecosystem, where individual players are invested in each other’s success.
Join us for a panel discussion that explores the economic impact and opportunities for B.C.’s technology and innovation economy including:
- How anchor companies and smaller firms are combining forces to empower businesses, people, and governments to tackle important problems and improve lives.
- How major investments are impacting local communities and institutions.
- How companies are investing in the talent pipeline.
A thriving tech sector vaccinates the economy. Whatever economic challenges the future brings, society will have the talent, skills, and experience to rapidly innovate and scale solutions, adapting and thriving no matter the conditions.
