Tech heavyweights invite solutions from Nelson locals
IBM and other innovative companies will be in Nelson on September 29 as part of the B.C. Growth Opportunities Tour (#BCGO).
Aimed at accelerating B.C. business growth, the tour takes businesses looking for tech solutions across the province to interact with local innovators and solution providers.
Following the successful initial tour, Schneider Electric, Streamline Transportation Tech, BCLC, and IBM Canada are returning to #BCGO this fall along with over 27 companies. These companies will be presenting their business challenges to an audience of local innovators who have the opportunity to offer their solutions.
#BCGO Fall 2017 will span six cities across seven weeks. Nelson’s event runs from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Best Western.
“IBM’s partnership with BC Innovation Council helps us fuel innovation that matters to BC business,” said John Longbottom, IBM Canada’s executive for the public sector in British Columbia. “#BCGO is another initiative that does this.”
“The level of expertise and collaborative initiative that stems from these tours helps drive the growth of business and industry around the province.”
