A message from Danny Robinson, CEO, BCIC

Last week, Greg Aasen, Chair of BCIC, and I shared a paper on “The rationale for BCIC’s support of startups”.  For those that haven’t had a chance to read it, I encourage you to do so. In it, we examine where BCIC can play a major role in strengthening BC’s ecosystem by supporting our local startup community. 

Every big company was once upon a time a startup and as many of us know, the startup period can be the riskiest. We look forward to hearing your comments to the paper and how together, as a community, we can work to make BC the best place to start and grow technology companies.

As BCIC continues our mission of supporting the development of technology entrepreneurs and tech commercialization across our province, we are pleased to launch “Innovation in BC” in partnership with Techvibes.
