The 20th Annual New Ventures BC Competition, presented by Innovate BC started six months ago with over 240 BC tech startups in the running for $250,000 in cash and prizes. Now, after four rounds of competition, online seminars and dedicated mentoring, we have narrowed the field down to our Top 10 Finalists.

While the judges will decide who wins our top prizes, we’re asking you, the tech community, to have your say. Vote for your favourite startup and help them win the $10,000 Innovate BC People’s Choice Award.

Have your say: voting is now open

Can you spot BC’s best new tech venture?

Voting will open on our website starting September 2 and will run until September 28th, 2020 11:59pm PST.

Vote early – vote often – but vote just once a day. We will be announcing the winner of the People’s Choice Award at our Competition Awards online October 1. Registration for the Awards will open the first week of September.
