Innovation Island is coming back to the Coast!
This time there are two 1/2 day courses for tech driven entrepreneurs – Tuesday November 24 in Sechelt – register for Refresh Your Minimum Viable Product (morning) and Customer Discovery (afternoon). These courses are being led by Graham Truax with Innovation Island. (his course back in February at the Gibsons Public Market sold out and was a great day of really practical learning). Kudos to the District of Sechelt for funding a Sunshine Coast regional support agreement with Innovation Island (our regional partner for BC Innovation Council programming). Courses are free.
