On October 20th, we hosted our Annual General Meeting of our members and took a moment to reflect on what Accelerate Okanagan and the #OKGNtech community have accomplished over the past year. You can review the initiatives we’ve launched and the milestones we’ve hit in our 2020/2021 Annual Report.
The meeting was also an opportunity for us to elect a new Board of Directors, consisting of both new and returning members. I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce and celebrate the new Accelerate Okanagan Board. This group of highly-skilled professionals have a wealth of experience and are committed to supporting us and the community through our next chapter of growth and pandemic recovery.

We would also like to recognize our appreciation for our outgoing board members, Blair Forrest, Josh Fraser and Quinton Pullen. While they may not be returning to our board, their dedication and impact on the OKGNtech community will continue to be felt. Thank you for all of the amazing work and support you’ve provided.
At Accelerate Okanagan we believe that entrepreneurs are the key to unlocking a better future. Coming out of the pandemic, technology and innovation will be critical to driving growth and recovery for all sectors. If we want to solve complex challenges in our community, we need to continue to build capacity for entrepreneurship and leadership.
