The BC Tech Association has announced the finalists for the 2021 Technology Impact Awards (TIAs).
“Throughout the COVID-19 crisis the province’s tech sector pulled together to support our communities, help small business to adopt technology, provide reskilling programs and put workers displaced by Covid into new jobs in the tech sector,” said Jill Tipping, BC Tech President and CEO.
“BC Tech companies built the resilience of British Columbia this year and the stories are inspiring! With more applicants than ever before, the TIAs celebrates a community of bold optimists and innovators that is transforming BC’s economy.”
The theme of the BC’s largest and longest-running tech awards program this year is the inspiration that comes from resilience and community pulling together, which is particularly fitting given the extensive work being done by BC Tech companies to address the challenges of the pandemic.
The “Spirit of BC Tech” award shines the spotlight on five companies that went above and beyond in 2020, contributing their energy and innovation to building the resilience of British Columbia and Canada in the face of Covid-19.
