BC NEEDS AN INTEGRATED ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY, SAYS DISCOVERY PARKS CEO
7 JANUARY 2011
Winners of Discovery Parks’ inaugural Generator Challenge will be eligible to move into their new office space at Discovery Parks Vancouver this month. The Generator Challenge suite—5,000 sq. ft. of premium, turn-key workspace—was designed to give promising new technology companies a boost into the marketplace.
The winners were announced at Discovery Parks’ 30th anniversary celebration, where Mark Betteridge made a special address regarding British Columbia’s future in technology. “We need an integrated provincial economic development strategy that includes technology of all levels within that,” Betteridge told the crowd, “and we don’t have it.”
Betteridge says that the key for BC’s future prosperity will be cooperation and collaboration between all levels of government, industry and post-secondary institutions.
