Founding sponsor SFU Business established New Ventures BC in 2000 as a means of recognizing and encouraging entrepreneurship in B.C.'s technology sector.
Today, the non-profit BC Ventures Society administers and operates the competition with generous support from the public and private sectors.
Executive Director Bob de Wit and Program Manager Angie Schick, plan and run the seminars and competition.
Each year, more than 100 B.C. business leaders—entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, angel investors, academics and professionals—donate their time and expertise as mentors and judges.
To date, more than 1,100 aspiring B.C. entrepreneurs have entered the competition, with 35 winning major prize packages. Most winners have continued on to form viable companies, raising more than $67 million in financing and creating more than 500 jobs for British Columbians.
But it's not only the winners who go on to success. Many finalists and round-three competitors use the skills they have learned in the competition to commercialize their business ideas.
