Accelerate Okanagan is a not-for-profit that supports the growth and development of tech companies by being program thought leaders and by facilitating a strong sense of community that people want to be a part of. Come learn how we as an organization have been working with staff and faculty as well as domestic and international students from local educational institutions with the goal of connecting them to the technology industry through initiatives like our Startup Basics program and sponsored scholarship opportunities.

The content of this session is applicable to K-12 and PSE.
