Innovation Island, in partnership with the Comox Valley Economic Development Society
, is bringing a series of business workshops to North Island College
starting in October.
The series of twelve hard-hitting workshops kick off with a TECH TALK
on October 18th at 2pm at the Stan Hagen Theatre at North Island College. This first session is FREE to attend, but preregistration is required.
The series runs in 4 rounds with 3 sessions in each round (one information session followed by 2 workshops the next day) and are for anyone from savvy tech-based SMBs and startups to entrepreneurs interested in business best practices.
Learn about the tools and techniques from leading Incubators and Accelerators. Explore best practices in lean methodology and identify practical steps to take your business to the next level through rapid iteration and innovation.
“Over the past few years I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to work closely with many successful tech Startups throughout our region. However, when it comes to our workshop series I’m equally excited with how dozens of more ‘non-tech’ entrepreneurs are applying tech-based principles to their businesses and projects. Technology touches everything and it moves extremely fast – with or without any of us! Learn the ‘code’ and give yourself an edge in whatever you are doing!” ~Graham Truax, Executive in Residence / Business Advisor
