BC Innovations Tour Visits Terrace
The Regional Innovation Opportunities Tour held its conference in Terrace yesterday. The tour is a platform for industry, government, and regional stakeholders to discuss their innovation challenges with BC researchers, companies and entrepreneurs. CEO of the Innovation Council Carl Anderson says that the event focuses on business development.
"Essentially what we're doing is bringing regional companies around, showing what they've done, who they are, what sort of special things they have and asking them how other people can help them grow."
Ultimately, the innovations council hopes to foster the growth of companies that generate revenue, produce high-paying skilled jobs and drive economic development in BC.
