Future Anchors of BC Program

Connecting with BC’s next home-grown anchor!

The 25th anniversary of the Technology Impact Awards (TIAs) will bring together the best and brightest of BC’s tech community. We understand that for growth stage companies, the cost of the TIAs can be significant—this is why we created the Future Anchors of BC Program.

With the support of our gracious Program Partners, we are inviting fifteen lucky growth-stage companies to join us at the TIAs.
