The Tech Collective was founded to inspire and assist companies to build community impact programs, collaborate with one another on common interests/causes, and ensure the sustainability of our community’s grassroots events such as Tech Pong and Tech’s Got Talent. Together, we can elevate and expand the impact of these initiatives across the province for generations to come.
As the program expands, we will offer members the following benefits:
- Access to (downloadable file and video) best practices in our resources section;
- Participation and networking at events such as lunch & learns and meetups;
- Promotion of your company and initiatives on our calendar of events;
- Use of the Tech Collective logo and recognition of your commitment to the community;
The Tech Collective will evolve under the direction of our advisory team and we encourage you to join by October 19, 2017, to be recognized as a founding partner. As a founding partner, you will play an essential role in helping to promote our initiative and benefit from our resources and events. Our formal launch will take place at Tech Pong @ the Telus World of Science.
Since 2014, the community’s two anchor events have raised nearly $300,000 for local charities. If you haven’t participated yet, make this your year!

Tech’s Got Talent
Following the enormous success of TechPong in 2014, Tech’s got Talent was born in the summer of 2015. The inaugural event drew over 500 attendees and 19 lip-syncing companies who collectively raised over $50,000. The bi-annual event raised a further $35,000 in 2017!

Annual Campaign – Equal Access to STEM Education
We believe that every company and every person should give to the causes and charities that are most meaningful to them.
We also believe that there is strength and an opportunity to foster our community when we rally behind a cause that resonates with many.
Each year, The Tech Collective will promote a specific cause that the BC tech community may optionally join. There will be a series of blog posts, fundraising events and of course, a number of local charities that will be recipients of our collective generosity.
For 2018, we are partnering with Technovation: the largest technology entrepreneurship program in the world for girls aged 10-18.
Impactful and lasting community impact programs aren’t built in a day. It takes time, experiences, and valuable resources. Creating an impactful program alone can be daunting.
With membership to The Tech Collective, you’ll gain access to an online ‘how to guide’ and invitations to quarterly learning events designed to help you leverage your company resources and strengthen the communities your team members care about. We will gather leaders from the BC community, and other like-minded companies to share their best practices with you!
