26 SFU and VentureLabs® Companies Recognised on 2018 Ready to Rocket List
An incredible 26 SFU VentureLabs® and Simon Fraser University affiliated companies were recognised on the 2018 Ready to Rocket list, announced in March. This is a list of top private British Columbia companies positioned to capitalize on growth in one of four technology sectors: information and communications technology; cleantech; life sciences; and digital health. The list compiled by Rocket Builders and an impressive team of advisors, included companies from across the province.
Geoffrey Hansen, managing partner of Rocket Builders noted that the top challenges faced by new ventures in the technology sector are capital, talent, space and management. VentureLabs is helping their companies address these challenges and scale-up by providing working space, educational programs, and ready access to seasoned entrepreneurs who can help companies fine-tune business strategies, build the right team and secure funding.
