We give entrepreneurs the mentorship, connections, and community they need to build technology-driven ventures.
A thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem has the power to inspire innovation and transform community.
As the Okanagan tech community and companies within it continue to grow, so does our support model. Coined ‘Continuous Acceleration,’ we deliver unique programming for different stages of growth. The reality is, each stage of the entrepreneurial process demands a different set of tools and we are constantly iterating in an effort to meet those needs.
There are three key areas of focus that serve as the backbone to Accelerate Okanagan’s various initiatives. By following these guiding principles, we’re helping #OKGNtech continue to grow—living into our title as one of Canada’s fastest-growing tech communities.
