The tech industry is the fastest growing sector in British Columbia, contributing over $14 billion dollars to the GDP and employing more than 90,000 people. However, only a handful of individuals have the know-how to scale a tech startup into a sustainable business that drives economic growth. 

Our mission at BC Tech is to ensure high-potential companies are connected to the the province’s leading experts and mentors and have the resources they need to scale. We’ve recently selected six local startups to join our HyperGrowth program in an effort to help these companies accelerate their growth and become BC’s next anchor company.

 

Meet the HyperGrowth 3.0 cohort!

They will learn from the best minds at local companies such as BuildDirectVision Critical, and Global Relay to build a foundation on which they will be able to scale their businesses.

The BC Tech team, our executives-in-residence, mentors, and subject matter experts spent countless hours deciding which companies would end up being a part of the third HyperGrowth cohort. It was not an easy process and we would like to thank all of the applicants who applied to the program. 

We would also like to thank all the EIRs, mentors, and judges for their time and expertise, and of course, our program partners for supporting our mission to create more anchor companies and drive economic growth in our province.
