Vancouver Startup Week has officially kicked off and what better way to get the celebrations going than with the BCIC-New Ventures BC Awards. Hundreds of entrepreneurs, industry leaders and government supporters, gathered for the 2016 Awards program to recognize leading early-stage technology companies in BC. Great conversations, delicious eats and exciting companies made the perfect recipe for a fantastic evening!
