Information on the BC tech space is unorganized
Although there are platforms that provide valuable information on the BC tech space, there are 3 key problems with existing solutions:
Transparency of tech in BC
People don’t know what the BC tech ecosystem means to them, what it consists of, what tech sectors are thriving, and what’s the reason behind it. What’s happening in the current BC tech industry feels like a bubble. People outside the bubble don’t know what’s happening inside.
Information about the local tech industry is scattered, and there’s no one source to show the tech evolution over time in BC and nowhere for people to check the latest data. We have the data and numbers, but they are boring, static, and non-interactive.
Difficult to see the big picture
Data and numbers are not engaging and are challenging for people to understand. Existing platforms only provide company-specific information without showing the macrospective of the tech ecosystem.
