On October 19th, 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 read thought the stories and initiatives we’ve launched and the milestones we’ve hit in our 2021/2022 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 that will support our community over the next year. 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.

We would also like to thank our outgoing board members for their time and dedication, Dr. Phil Barker, Corie Gritffiths, and Doug Gilchrist. While they may not be returning to our board, their 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. If we want to solve complex challenges in our community, we need to continuously build capacity for entrepreneurship and leadership. We continue to look ahead at the changing needs of our community. Now more than ever, Accelerate Okanagan is ready to elevate entrepreneurs, address challenges companies are facing, and foster meaningful connections in our community.
