May 1, 2019

Capilano University has partnered with Western Economic Diversification Canada to develop an innovative Indigenous Digital Accelerator (IDA) project at CapU’s North Vancouver campus. Located in CapU’s planned Creative Tech Community, the IDA is expected to launch in 2020 and will provide resources to promote Indigenous business growth in BC’s tech, digital-creative, and cultural sectors. A CapU release notes that the project will scale up early stage Indigenous companies with high growth, commercialization, and innovation potential within a framework that emphasizes community development and low environmental impact. CapU (BC)
