BC Business Summit 2017:
Scaling Up for Prosperity in a Changing World
More than 400 business, academic, Indigenous and government leaders from across British Columbia and Canada came together at the fifth annual BC Business Summit in November 2017. Together they engaged in an energetic dialogue about creating the right policies and conditions to cultivate more high-growth companies and attract larger firms to invest and grow in BC, for the benefit of all British Columbians.
Scaling Up for Prosperity in a Changing World featured an outstanding line-up of local and international thought leaders in what was undoubtedly the year’s preeminent business event, hosted by the Business Council of British Columbia. We invite you to experience some of the highlights of #ScaleUpBC below.
Each year, the Business Summit explores the pressing challenges facing British Columbia's prosperity. We hope you will join us in 2018.
