Technology Impact Awards (TIAs) recognized some of the biggest change-makers in the province’s tech industry, while virtually announcing this year’s finalists.

The finalists for the 2020 TIAs were announced by BC Tech Association President and CEO Jill Tipping, and co-host Riaz Meghji, Founder of Every Conversation Counts on Tuesday.

“Seeing the community come together to support one another during these challenging times has given new meaning to our annual celebration of the change makers, the up-and-comers, the innovators and the bold,” said Tipping.

“It is incredibly rewarding to see such grit, kindness, and compassion as we work to make BC the best place to grow and scale a tech company and advance technology adoption in every industry.” 

The 2020 theme of the tech awards program is “Purpose,” with a new award, the “Spirit of BC Tech — Purpose” award celebrating those companies who put purpose first, tackling important global problems with innovative solutions. 

“The technology sector contributes to British Columbia’s continued economic success, while producing innovative results that make a difference in people’s lives,” said Minister of Citizens’ Services Anne Kang.
