50% of those seeing a negative revenue/order impact are down by 30% or more
90% of BC tech companies have implemented measures to cut costs to extend the runway of existing capital
50% of tech companies are not hiring – but – positively 50% are still hiring at this time
60% of tech companies have pivoted their business as a consequence of COVID, many to provide pro bono services and support to others, some to launch new products and services on their platform
We’ve moved our programs, C-Councils and other member services to a virtual model and more details are available at the links below. Please keep communication coming in to our team members or to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your feedback on challenges and ideas are welcome.
BC Tech will be staying connected to our community through these challenging times through this webpage of COVID-19 resources, our weekly COVID-19 email update and a weekly 30 min COVID-19 Q&A call with our CEO Jill Tipping (register above). All the links we have shared in our weekly COVID-19 emails are collated at the links below.
