'Innovation Island' shares another opportunity: the Tech Resiliency Program may be for you

Port McNeill, B.C. - January 2021 Innovation Island has once again come forward with a program formed to help businesses. Read below for more information from our local allie and advocate Jennifer @innovationisland

"Happy New Year I hope 2021 is starting off well for you and your members, save our trying times.

I would briefly like to introduce you to a program that Innovation Island has been running called the Tech Resiliency Program (TRP). For those of you who are familiar with our Venture Acceleration Program, the TRP program is similar, however, it’s running for a limited time (ending in February) and it is being offered at no cost. The program is being led by Janet Bongauro who is also our Business Advisor from DER3, with support from Graham Truax, our Executive in Residence.

While the TRP is “mostly” focused on technology companies we have a few remaining spots that can be filled by companies “working” with technology or who are simply innovating in interesting ways. The TRP team works to address individual business challenges and opportunities through one-on-one mentoring and advisory services.

As part of this program Innovation Island is also hosting a number of special webinar info-sessions for Chambers (by region) in order to share information on the program and touch on some of the key topics we’ve been addressing with other businesses in the program.

Some examples of topics include:

  • How to build a POC (proof of concept) or MVP (Minimum Viable Product for new business offerings

  • How to produce an effective competitive analysis that supports growth

  • Ways to ensure product-market fit

  • How to develop an effective marketing strategy

  • Startup and growth financing stages and financing readiness checklists

  • Business management advice to set your company up for growth or sale
