For an area celebrated as a four-season playground, it’s electrifying to see just how much entrepreneurial energy we can generate around here.
The OKGo campaign was launched in 2021 as a collaborative partnership between Tourism Kelowna, the Central Okanagan Economic Development Commission, and Accelerate Okanagan. The campaign provides a cohesive regional story focused on key economic sectors—Advanced Manufacturing, Aerospace, Agriculture, Cannabis, Digital Tech, and Viticulture. By sharing the true stories of innovations and entrepreneurs, we can show the world what it’s really like to do business in the Okanagan and why we are proud to call the region home.
Here’s a look at the latest video in the series:
The supportive business environment, competitive tax climate and spirit of collaboration get startups, established businesses, and innovative thinkers excited build their businesses here. Of course the outdoor lifestyle helps, with over 2,000 hours of sunshine every year as well as trestles, trails, and endless beaches to explore. So does easy access, with proximity to the major Pacific Northwest centres of Vancouver BC, Calgary AB and Seattle WA and direct daily flights through Kelowna International Airport. The engaging sector stories shared through OKGo are sparking connection, excitement and sharing the value proposition of the region.
