This week, we celebrate a milestone. W Venture, a program committed to advancing entrepreneurial women, concludes its pilot run in British Columbia. The program was supported by the Digital Technology Supercluster in an effort to increase the capacity for women entrepreneurs in the region and ensure that they are able to receive the training and support they need to succeed in their ventures.

Thirty companies, in three cohorts, went through the program. These cohorts were run by Accelerate Okanagan, VIATEC, and the University of Victoria—organizing companies located in their respective regions. Founders came to the program from a wide variety of industries, including wellness, cleantech, e-commerce, biotech, and enterprise software.

Here is a closer look at the trailblazers and innovators who participated in the Okanagan cohort:
