27 Oct 2015 2014-2015 Year in Review
The 2014-2015 year was a big one for the BC Technology Industry Association.
Not only did this past year bring the opening of the BCTIA Innovation Hub, it also saw the launch of both the HyperGrowth and TechTalentBC programs, as well as the continued success of Centre4Growth and signature events such as TechBrew and the Technology Impact Awards.
The BC tech industry as a whole also continued to grow at an incredible rate, solidifying its place as the 3rd largest industry in the province — contributing nearly 8% of provincial GDP. Tech continues to grow at 2x the rate of the province overall, and as an industry, tech employs more people than the forestry and mining, oil & gas sectors combined.
As the BCTIA prepared to host its 22nd Annual General Meeting, we decided to take stock of our incredible year and create a snapshot of these achievements and more in the form of a Year in Review.
