The 2020 KPMG BC Tech Report Card: Tackling the Scale-up Challenge reviewed the state of BC’s tech sector. We asked why BC tech companies seemed to stay small, not only compared to other global ecosystems but compared to other parts of Canada. We found a clear answer. What BC lacks is sustained, multi-year federal and provincial investment to provide the kinds of programs that help companies grow from small to medium-sized and from medium-sized to large.
What’s so great about scale-ups? Why are they an important and necessary part of a thriving tech ecosystem? BC Tech CEO Jill Tipping gives 10 reasons in this short video.
What positive impact do ScaleUp Accelerator Programs programs have? Tech companies explain in their own words how they were supported to scale-up and grow.
BC Tech’s ScaleUp Accelerator Programs deliver a strong return on investment by growing the economy, accelerating the growth of BC tech companies, creating more tech jobs and increasing diversity in BC’s tech talent pool.
