The Vancouver Club - Business Talk

Business Talk

Government & Innovation


The Business Series kicks off with a panel discussion addressing the role of government in and around innovation. Government can be a major player in the support and growth of startups, ecosystems, initiatives, and direct growth of innovation platforms. It can also fail at all of these things. Where does Canada's innovation agenda fit into the global innovation economy? What are superclusters? What does the Cascadia Technology Corridor agreement mean for anyone in Vancouver? Is Vancouver Silicon Valley North, or is it a completely different landscape because of Canadian politics? Does Canadian immigration policy affect the innovation agenda and its execution?

Join fellow members for a discussion addressing these topics with panelists James Maynard, Mischa Steiner, and Dr. Sarah Lubik.
