#WhatWorks – Purpose Series

Finding ways to make the sector stronger is an essential part of BC Tech’s mission. Through a series of solution-oriented events, from guest speakers to impactful panels, we will explore the role Purpose plays in the BC Tech ecosystem and how purpose can power business resilience, culture and results.

Learn from companies that lead in this area like BDC, Traction on Demand, Focus Professional Services, Unbounce, Virtro, C I Direct (Wealthbar), Aquatic Informatics, SkyHive and Thrive Health.

We’ll be sharing success stories and actionable #whatworks strategies – join us for one event or save more when you buy the series ticket bundle.
