25 Apr 2014 2014 TIAs Finalists Announced
BC Companies Making their Mark on the World
VANCOUVER, BC– Today the BC Technology Industry Association (BCTIA) announced the finalists for the 2014 Technology Impact Awards (TIAs). Exemplifying the awards theme of ‘BC’s Mark on the World’, the 2014 finalists embolden British Columbia’s reputation for global excellence across a wide range of technologies including enterprise software, hardware, health care and cleantech.
The breadth of technologies being developed, and the international markets that they serve, illustrate the strength, diversity and the increasing global reach of the BC Technology Industry.
“The 2014 TIAs finalists illustrates the continuing maturity of the BC technology industry, and exemplifies the ingenuity, strength, and diversity of our ecosystem,” stated BCTIA President Bill Tam. “With companies like these, it’s easy to see why Vancouver and BC continue to gain global recognition as the place to start and grow a tech company.” Tam added.
