Last week, Rocketbuilders released their 2020 Ready to Rocket list. The annual list celebrates BC’s tech leaders and trends by recognizing tech companies that will likely experience significant revenue growth, venture capital investment or acquisition by a major player in the coming year.

This year, the list named 49 NVBC Competition alumni, including 2019 Top Competitors: Lumen5, BioInteractive Technologies, NiceJob, and Cuboh.

NVBC Alumni, Microbiome Insights, was named to the Life Sciences Ready to Rocket list for the fourth time. The company’s expertise and innovation in microbial genetic sequencing positions has growth potential and makes them a company to watch even in the challenging times of the pandemic.

It is a real honor to be selected as a Ready to Rocket Life Science company again this year”, says Malcolm Kendall, CEO of Microbiome Insights. “We are very humbled to be one of ten featured life sciences companies in British Columbia with the greatest potential for growth.

To all the ventures named – well done! We are excited to see your startups soar.
