Technology and Business

The Central Okanagan region is gaining recognition for its developing high technology cluster. The Okanagan’s centres of higher learning, Okanagan College, UBC Okanagan, Centre for Arts and Technology – Kelowna, have driven research and development in the area, and contributed skilled technology workers to the growing tech sector.

Eight-five per cent of high technology companies in the Okanagan are service sector firms working in social media and web 2.0, interactive marketing and e-learning, as well as mobile and wireless services and video games.

The Okanagan’s entrepreneurial spirit attracts many new business owners, and the business-friendly area provides new businesses with an ideal platform for growth.

A local Okanagan entrepreneurial success story is shared in a 45 minute presentation  Ryan Holmes ignITEs: My Entrepreneurial Journey.
