CEO Strategy Forums
Our CEO Strategy Forums provide UBCO entrepreneurs with an opportunity to engage directly with CEOs who have successfully commercialized university innovation. Events include a networking reception and talk in a private setting.
CEO Strategy Forum, November 2019
In November 2019, e@UBCO brought together four successful entrepreneurs who have founded tech businesses in the BC Interior with global impact: Morgan Dehnel, founder of D-Pace, Brad Pommen founder of SMRT1 Technologies Ltd, Anne Marie Kirby founder of CoreHealth Technologies, and Keith MacIntyre founder of @Big Bear Software.
They shared their secrets on connecting with hard to reach B2B prospects for customer discovery and business development, protecting intellectual property, overcoming a desire to hide out in the lab, creative solutions to financing, team and culture building, talent recruitment, and more.
They shared their ups and downs and the community-building activities they are involved in – a striking feature of each story was their commitment to make our communities a better place.
