The BC Tech Association has announced the finalists for its 2018 Technology Impact Awards (TIAs), which recognize companies contributing to the success of the province’s tech ecosystem.

The association is also celebrating 25 years of the awards ceremony. Past recipients have included UrtheCast, which put two cameras on the International Space Station; BroadbandTV, the third largest video property in the world after Google and Facebook; and STEMCELL Technologies, which employs over 800 people globally.

“British Columbians are innovators and problem solvers by nature. Pioneers, we have survived and thrived and built modern day BC by embracing new ideas and harnessing new technology,” said Jill Tipping, BC Tech president and CEO. “This innovation is the spirit of BC’s tech sector, and is what drives the accomplishments and passions we will honour at the TIAs this year. We are also celebrating an incredible quarter century of our sector doing good for people, for our province, and for the world.”

The winners of the 25th annual TIAs will be announced on Friday, June 1 at the Technology Impact Awards Gala.

The 2018 finalists come from a range of industries, including software, healthtech, artificial intelligence, FinTech, and ecommerce.
