Starting this fall, the program will build on successful offerings currently delivered by both ACETECH and BCTIA. The goal is to coordinate a professional development curriculum for the whole executive team that reaches into primary business functions such sales, marketing, finance, product management, and project management.
“ACETECH has been very successful in leveraging world class expertise and the experience of seasoned CEOs to help BC IP-based companies grow their revenue,” said Shannon Byrne Susko, Chair of ACETECH and CEO of Subserveo. “The new joint program with the BCTIA will use a similar approach to train other senior technology professionals,” Susko added.
As the provincial technology industry association, the BCTIA represents over 2100 technology companies across the Province from start-ups to established anchors while ACETECH brings together CEOs of technology companies for peer support, mentoring and ongoing professional development.
