Join this free conference aimed at introducing skilled newcomers with technology backgrounds (engineering, IT and others) to BC cleantech companies looking for employees to help them to grow.
Connect to the Future: BC Careers in Cleantech is an upcoming conference Thursday, October 12 from 10 to 3pm at the Vancouver Public Library Central Branch. This is a partnership between ISSofBC, VPL and Vancity.
This event at the Vancouver Public Library’s Alice MacKay Room is free. However, you need to register to secure a seat.
We have leaders from 11 cleantech companies speaking at this event. We also have a speaker from the Ministry of Jobs, Trade and Technology and another from KPMG. Plus loads of interesting people in the roundtables. One of the roundtables will offer answers to questions about starting a cleantech business. The other two will focus on getting work in energy-related and resource-recovery cleantech.
Want to prepare well for networking at this event? Here are the employers attending:
Check out the websites of these organizations and come to the conference prepared to network.
Plus, as an added bonus, the BC Public Service Agency will also be on hand to share information about cleantech-related jobs in the provincial government.
Prepare to be inspired to start a cleantech company as well. Representatives from Foresight Cleantech Accelerator, New Ventures BC and SFU’s Invention 2 Innovation will also be available.
Chances like this, to meet top executives from growing firms, are rare. Don’t miss out on this event to be inspired by cleantech work and business opportunities.
Light lunch is provided.
