Announcing Generator 10.0

April 14th, 2020 |

Discovery Parks is pleased to announce the winners of the Generator Challenge 10.0 Competition.

The Generator Challenge awards premium, turn-key workspace for 12 months to early-stage technology companies that demonstrate a high likelihood of success. The Generator program is based on the concept that free-flowing ideas, minimal barriers and a belief in serendipity accelerate the growth and success of technology companies.

This is a joint project of Discovery Parks and the City of Vancouver.  The companies are evaluated and selected by a committee of representatives from the BC Tech Association (BC Tech), LifeSciences BC, Vancouver Economic Commission and Discovery Parks Investments Ltd.

Pending co-working restrictions due to COVID-19, 7 companies will move into the Generator on June 1, 2020.  2020-2021 will be the tenth year of operation for the Generator.  With access to mentors and programming provided by BC Tech and LifeSciences BC, the companies will also have support available to thrive and grow.
