Improvements across complex health-care systems are established through building a culture of innovation and a community of collaboration. With this in mind, Accelerate Okanagan, BC Cancer, Interior Health, and The University of British Columbia have joined forces to launch an annual Future of Health Forum for health researchers, clinicians, innovators, entrepreneurs, and members of the public to connect and exchange ideas.
This year, The Future of Health Forum will focus on cancer and the patient journey through cancer. This inaugural event is an amazing opportunity for clinical and academic colleagues to share their perspectives on the complex problems facing the health-care system today and to engage the OKGNtech community to assist in developing innovative solutions.
To increase the number of technology companies that start and grow in the Okanagan
We do this in two ways:
1. Helping to develop and support a vibrant entrepreneurial, creative and innovative technology community.
Our community ranges from students and aspiring entrepreneurs to startups and early stage companies; as well as established technology companies and the wide range of service providers who are critical to our industry
Our objective is to encourage people to start and grow technology companies!
2. Offering programs that support entrepreneurs and technology companies looking to start, accelerate and grow.
These programs combine elements such as needs assessments, hands on coaching, mentorship, and access to world class expertise - including connections provincially, nationally and internationally.
Our objective is to help entrepreneurs and companies accelerate their growth and maximize their opportunity
