Hosted by JCI Kelowna, the annual Mayor's Luncheon provides an opportunity for members of the community to engage in meaningful dialogue with the Kelowna City Mayor Colin Basran on topics affecting our city.
This lunch time event is an excellent opportunity to get involved and actively shape our community. The focus of the 2019 JCI Mayor's Luncheon is on the question of "What can the City of Kelowna do to attract and retain young active citizens to live and stay in our community, in particular around quality of life, housing and transportation?"
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
