From Coast to Coast – growing the digital economyMay 29, 2013 ● Build Strong Cities ● Josh Wright
British Columbia and our final destination, Vancouver, is a very vibrant place that represents a host of incredible organizations that support entrepreneurship and connectivity when it comes to the digital economy. Not only does the Vancouver economy represent growth and support, but it also benefits from being a gateway to large markets on the West Coast of the United States.
Wavefront is a CDMN Hub that has a presence in several places across the country and they do great work in terms of “accelerating wireless innovation and commercialization in Canada. Definitely an organization worth looking into and learning more about! Vancouver is also home to one of the country’s most successful incubator/accelerators, GrowLab and from what I’ve heard, one of the most beneficial networking events in the annual Canadian calendar when it comes to startups and innovation, the GROW Conference.
We’re off to the FCM’s Annual Conference and Trade Show to share our experiences and learn more about Strong Cities, Strong Communities, and a Strong Canada.
