At Accelerate Okanagan, our Mission is 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.
