Meet the founders looking to make their mark in #OKGNtech.

This spring, we welcomed a brand new group of entrepreneurs to the Venture Acceleration Program (or VAP, as we like to call it). Over the next six months, these entrepreneurs will validate, pivot, and learn how to grow their business as they progress through the program’s workshops and mentorship sessions that focus on validating their business model and finding product-market fit.

Here is a look at who they are and what they’re working on:

Connect with Andre or learn more about Divine Aqua Vitae.

Connect with Brendan or learn more about Booklight.

Learn more about Hold Fast Social Club.

Learn more about Candor Inspections.


Connect with Jim or learn more about Smart Offers.

Learn more about the North Industries.

Connect with Reza, Adrian and Dolly or learn more about Happily.

Learn more about Savory Greens.

Connect with Wiliam.

The Venture Acceleration Program is an initiative of Innovate BC that we are proud to offer in the Okanagan.
