BC Government Announces $100 Million VC Fund to Build Province’s Tech Sector
The Province of British Columbia announced today that is creating a $100-million venture capital fund.
The fund builds the foundation for a comprehensive technology strategy aimed at stimulating growth in the fast-moving sector, creating jobs and strengthening a diverse economy.
Premier Christy Clark (pictured with Mobify’s Igor Faletski) announced the new BC Tech Fund as part of the first of three economy-building pillars in the B.C. government’s multi-year #BCTECH Strategy that aims to drive growth and job creation in the province’s tech sector.
“B.C.’s technology sector is consistently growing faster than the overall economy making this the perfect time to catch the wave and help smaller companies join in the ranks of economy builders,” said Clark.
