20 Nov 2018 New HyperGrowth Cohorts Announced
New Cohorts for HyperGrowth & HyperGrowth:Life
We are proud to announce the fourth cohort of HyperGrowth and the third of HyperGrowth:Life as we kick off with the official start of programming.
Please join us in welcoming:
AE knows exactly what fans are streaming and the artists they love. We help music marketers understand their fans as deeply as Netflix and Amazon do. With permission-based social listening, we filter social data to create real-time customer profiles that businesses use to boost marketing ROI.
Drive CX is customer experience management software designed to help restaurants and retail businesses increase sales through customer loyalty. It is for expanding restaurant chains and retail businesses that need to better understand their customers’ experience and stay “ahead of the curve” in today’s highly competitive business environment.
From medical simulation to enterprise safety, we deliver ‘Education as an Experience’. Conquer Mobile is a specialist in education technology with deep expertise in UX, VR, simulation, and gamification. Since 2009 the team has been creating innovative custom mobile solutions for businesses in North America. Current focus areas are: medical simulation training, enterprise safety and custom healthcare education.
While everyone now talks about using AI and Machine Learning in capital markets, we believe we are one of the “very few [who] actually do it”. We are harnessing the power of artificial intelligence to make better investment decisions for trading in financial markets by inferring patterns that are extendable to future and are robust. We started Delecta in 2017 because we enjoy developing novel solutions that result in exponential technologies.
EP Fitness Online brings together a personalized approach to fitness, nutrition and health. Our clients work as a team in a competitive landscape but also work towards their individual health needs. We work with small to large sized businesses around the world leveraging technology that increases engagement and ROI.
Molecular You helps you take control of your health through personal health assessments and preventive action plans. Unlike pure genetic testing, which just shows your inherited risks, we also analyze the vast range of dynamic biomarkers involved in diet, lifestyle and environment to give you the full picture of your current health.
At Locumunity, our vision is to create a community that will facilitate and enable doctors and healthcare facilities to connect efficiently and with full transparency. Our unique approach of utilizing technology, media, and e-health platforms enables doctors and healthcare facilities to interact through an online community, where both sides can organize their calendar, advertise their availability, and be connected with potential candidates or employers.
HyperGrowth is BC’s premiere accelerator aimed at helping growth stage companies ($1M – $5M ARR) increase their revenue, grow their teams, strengthen their leadership strategy, expand into new markets, or attract funding.
Based on the success of HyperGrowth, HyperGrowth:Life is a six-month revenue and growth accelerator that guides life sciences entrepreneurs to build BC’s next generation of anchor tech companies. The program is specifically designed for Health Tech, Life Sciences, and Agritech entrepreneurs to build and run solid growth engines to scale their companies.
HyperGrowth:Life is joint-initiative between BC Tech Association and Genome BC to launch and support commercial-ready life sciences companies in the province.
On September 20, in partnership with Genome BC, we held our first-ever Venture Program Mixer, in which we invited companies, community members, and partners to come together to celebrate the early launch of the cohorts.
New this year, we’ve introduced “stage gating” as a system for selecting the companies entering into HyperGrowth and HyperGrowth:Life. Those that meet the criteria are given a seat for the first month of programming, and then invited to self-select or be selected out based on fit and ready to continue with the next five months.
After the Venture Program mixer on September 20, we kicked off with an orientation day at Stretch Yoga in Chinatown. Companies were guided through a goal-setting session and an expert-led afternoon of understanding purpose, vision, and values.

Special thanks to our partners for making this program possible.
