BCIC is developing an ecosystem that supports the creation of successful technology companies in BC, promoting economic development, including jobs, making our province a great place to start and grow technology companies.
Thanks to BCIC's support and province-wide commitment, Techvibes will also be launching our inaugural Okanagan Startup Index this month as well as a combined BC Startup Index that includes startups across BC.
Startups are ranked using the 'Techvibes Traffic Rank' - currently an average of Alexa and Compete rankings, two leading web traffic data sites. Neither Alexa or Compete's numbers are perfect; however interesting trends emerge over time allowing readers to compare different websites on a level playing field as we update monthly.
To be eligible for the Startup Indexes, your company must meet the following criteria:
- Be located within Metro Area of the city in question (or the province in the case of the BC Index)
- Be a tech company - either hardware, software, web application/service or mobile
- Not be a publically-traded company
