The Hub is a 26,000 square foot, state-of-the art office facility available to emerging BC technology companies seeking to grow their business.
"Attracting, developing and retaining top quality talent in BC has been a personal mission that I've been able to explore and influence through my role at ACL," said Laurie Schultz, President and CEO at ACL. "The BCTIA Innovation Hub is purpose-built to serve as a springboard for small companies with really big ideas right here in British Columbia. That is something ACL can get behind, and our founding sponsorship will consist of both financial support and lending the creativity, expertise and experience of our professionals to entrepreneurs growing their business at The Hub."
What is The Hub?
The BCTIA Innovation Hub is many things. For emerging tech companies, The Hub is a 26,000 square foot acceleration space dedicated to helping companies grow. For anchor tech companies like ACL, The Hub is an opportunity to collaborate with entrepreneurs, embed development teams in an innovative environment, and give back to the industry.
