Wavefront was excited to once again participate in the #BCTECH Summit, the largest technology event in British Columbia. The exciting two-day event kicked off with remarks from Premier Christy Clark announcing the government’s initiatives to boost the tech sector in B.C. by fostering talent in our province and welcoming educated foreign developers. As the Centre of Excellence for wireless innovation, Wavefront looks forward to being a part of such an inspiring time in the technology industry.
As a partner of the BC Innovation Council, Wavefront was involved in the Marketplace as a Community Partner where we demonstrated technology that focused on Smart Cities. In partnership with Sierra Wireless and Two Tall Totems, we showcased a smart truck and smart boat demo with sensors that can detect motion, water bilge, battery power, shock and light. With the implementation of these sensors in a city, we can potentially help improve the transit system, traffic, the way we transport food and more.
The #BCTECH Summit was also a great opportunity for us to connect with companies about opportunities in our Venture Acceleration Program, RevUp Program, Global Market Entry Program, Consulting Services and Technical Resources.
Alongside us at the event were a few of our Venture Acceleration Program and RevUp participants and graduates:
- Base Wireless
- Ecoation Innovative Solutions Inc.
- Insight Diagnostics
- Mesh Food Exchange
- Sensible Building Science
- Tradable Bits
Future Realities presented by Microsoft
As predicted, the #BCTECH Summit was a great success with exhibitors displaying amazing technology such as a dancing robot, the virtual reality gear, and robotic cats. We look forward to seeing the latest innovation at next year’s event!
