If there is one thing we know for sure, it’s that the #OKGNtech community knows how to have a good time! Our annual New Year Kick Off Party (NYKO) was all about creating valuable connections and memories with the brightest in the Okanagan tech community. NYKO welcomed everyone in tech. Entrepreneurs, technology enthusiasts, investors as well as supporters of #OKGNtech all gathered at BNA Co. & Eatery to celebrate the beginning of a new year, and a bright future for the Okanagan’s tech industry. Here is a look at some of the highlights.

A big thank you to Refresh Financial for buying #OKGNtech a couple rounds! The signature drinks were to-die-for and really helped us kick off the New Year with a bang. [Editor’s note: we’re blaming those French 75s’ for all that dance floor magic]

What a Good-looking Crew

Thank you to both Kimmit Wrzesniewski and the Law Office of S.Grynwajc for the next-level photo booth experience. Having The Collective You capture our community was such a thrill and we are looking forward to showcasing this collection of portraits over the coming year.

We Couldn’t Have Done It Without You
