Accelerate Okanagan is actively looking to help tech companies start and grow in Penticton and South Okanagan.
We are focusing on three main sectors: internet and communications technology, clean and green technology, and technology applications in life science and agriculture.
Please come out to our next What We Do session at the Penticton Innovation Centre (PIC) (583 Duncan Avenue @ Okanagan College) on Thursday June 14, 2012. These sessions are run every two weeks, they are free, and they are informal. Come and learn about what we do to help your business start and grow or just to come to learn about being part of the entrepreneurial community.
There are two new companies who are part of our Venture Acceleration Program in Penticton, Big Bear Software and Dynacode Software. We now have six companies who are part of the PIC, so the centre is starting to buzz!
After only being here a few short weeks, I’m still learning about the energy and activity of Penticton and South Okanagan. I’m here to become an active part of this community and help to develop the entrepreneurial community.
I’m the feet on the street here in the South Okanagan. Let me know if there is an event or workshop you think I should attend. Please get in touch with me if you know of an entrepreneur who wants to start or grow a tech based company. If you are trying to grow the knowledge-based economy, we want to be a part of that vision with you; our doors and ears are open.
