Via BCTIA's opportunities section, the Consulate General of Canada, San Francisco is inviting companies to the first Plug and Play Tech Centre Workshop at their Sunnyvale campus in Silicon Valley on October 20th. Plug and Play is a successful high-tech incubator in the heart of Silicon Valley where over 150 technology start-ups from over 20 countries work closely together to build innovative companies.
