BC Growth Opportunities

BC Growth Opportunities (#BCGO) Fall 2017

#BCGO Fall 2017 was a six-city tour across the province that facilitated introductions between companies looking for B.C. tech solutions and local businesses and entrepreneurs.

BC companies had business opportunities brought to them so they could grow their businesses where they live, and presenters gained access to BC tech around the province.

 “… a hub for ideas and creativity in solving tomorrow’s problems.”

Catherine Roome, President & CEO
BC Safety Authority
