Vancouver Technology Leader Joins as Founding Partner in BCTIA Innovation Hub

ACL, a Vancouver-headquartered software company focused on the anti-bribery and corruption, fraud detection, and regulatory compliance markets, today announced its support for “made in BC” technology companies with a founding partnership in the BCTIA Innovation Hub (“The Hub”). The Hub is a 26,000 square foot, state-of-the art office facility available to emerging BC technology companies seeking to grow their business.

“Attracting, developing and retaining top quality talent in BC has been a personal mission that I’ve been able to explore and influence through my role at ACL,” said Laurie Schultz, President and CEO at ACL. “The BCTIA Innovation Hub is purpose-built to serve as a springboard for small companies with really big ideas right here in British Columbia. That is something ACL can get behind, and our founding sponsorship will consist of both financial support and lending the creativity, expertise and experience of our professionals to entrepreneurs growing their business at The Hub.”

What is The Hub?

The BCTIA Innovation Hub is many things. For emerging tech companies, The Hub is a 26,000 square foot acceleration space dedicated to helping companies grow. For anchor tech companies like ACL, The Hub is an opportunity to collaborate with entrepreneurs, embed development teams in an innovative environment, and give back to the industry. For professional services firms, The Hub is a chance to host “Grub at the Hub” sessions, engage with clients and meet industry leaders.

At The Hub, growing companies find it easy to access services, support, programs, and amenities so that we never lose sight of what matters most: Continuing to make BC the best place to start and grow a tech company.

“British Columbia has long held a reputation for innovation in new technology and is home to a hotbed of talent and ideas,” added Bill Tam, President and CEO of the BCTIA. “With The Hub, we hope to create an environment where the next 25-year strong technology brand like ACL comes to life and grow to success. We sincerely thank ACL for joining with us and offering their support and expertise.”
