Growing the Next Generation of Tech Companies in BC.
British Columbia boasts one of the most vibrant startup ecosystems in the world. Our goal is to provide deep and meaningful accelerator programs for Growth and Scale-stage companies to create the next Hootsuite, Global Relay, and MDA. We provide education from experienced coaches, connectivity to the best partners and investors, and we drive accountability and focus through intensive cohort programs. While our cohort programs have set application periods each year, we also offer many year-round services. From one-on-one meetings with our Executives-in-Residence to accessing our Expert Network, to weekly Grub in The Hub lunch n’ learns, there’s always something happening to help you keep your business moving forward.
BC’s leading growth-stage revenue accelerator.
As part of a six-month cohort, HyperGrowth companies actively participate in a residency program focused on driving revenue growth. Companies are selected for the program through an application and pitch process to then receive support and advice from world-class advisors and active CEOs from Vancouver’s leading tech companies.
HyperGrowth:Life is a six-month revenue and growth accelerator program that guides life sciences entrepreneurs to build BC’s next generation of anchor tech companies. The program is specifically designed for Health Tech, Clean Tech, Life Sciences, and Agritech entrepreneurs to build and run solid growth engines to scale their companies.
British Columbia is home to a vibrant FinTech cluster of close to 100 companies nearly one-third of which are less than five years old. In light of this, we’ve designed a program to support FinTech companies that are Growth-stage and beyond, and to connect them with financial institutions, investors, and partners.
BC Tech has one of the biggest rolodexes in town (for those of you under 40, that means we are well connected with the partners, investors, and customers that tech companies need to grow) and we regularly connect BC-based tech companies with industry leaders, technology buyers and investors to promote strategic partnerships, funding, and company growth.
The Embedded Executive program provides startups with the ability to work with an executive who otherwise would not have been feasible. The executive’s purpose is to build a foundation for the company to build off of and scale it to impressive heights.
No industry or company can be complacent in this age of rapid and disruptive change. Technology, evolving labour demographics, and consumer behaviours are motivating companies of all sizes to adapt to the exciting opportunities emerging in our world today.
Executive in Residence
The backbone of our program is the mentorship and customized expert advice that entrepreneurs receive from our Executives-in-Residence (EIRs)—a seasoned group of accomplished individuals who have started and sold their own companies and have functional and sector-based knowledge to help you grow.
