ancouver’s UrtheCast Corp. has released its first images from the International Space Station (ISS). The images, taken on March 28, show approximately 300 square kilometres around the Jamaican city of Moneague. “This is a pivotal moment for the company and for everyone who’s been a part of the vision that we set in motion in 2010,” said UrtheCast co-founder and chief executive officer, Scott Larson. “Our team has been working extremely hard to make certain that we reach this goal of democratizing a very powerful perspective on the world.” The company also announced April 3 that ISS activities are exempt from the U.S. government’s decision to suspend any contact with members of the

Russian government. “It is business as usual for the company, as we continue the commissioning of our cameras on the International Space Station,” said UrtheCast president and COO Wade Larson.  The company says that it expects to unveil its first fullcolour Ultra HD video of the Earth in 2014’s second quarter. The company is working on calibrating its cameras in preparation for this event.

n a time when cash can be counterfeited, credit cards can be stolen, ATMs can be skimmed and even alternative payment methods like Bitcoin remain extremely volatile and prone to mass account theft, Canadian consumers have few secure options. But Vancouver-based PayWith claims it has developed a secure and simple alternative point-of-sale payment method. After securing $10 million in investment and a North American licensing agreement with MasterCard, the company has launched the mCard in Vancouver, a mobile iOS and Android app for in-store transactions. “It’s our feeling that the future of payments will eventually be mobile,” says PayWith CEO David Strebinger. “What if somebody could actually walk in and pay with their phone at a merchant location using a

Ata Sina, who is earning his master’s degree in engineering, says he was inspired to create the paper three years ago after watching an origami demonstration. The technique, which he coins as “origami engineering,” uses software to program a machine to make cuts and creases in a sheet of paper. Thermoplastic polymers are then attached to the paper, which is placed in an oven at 110 C for a few seconds. The polymers cause the paper to fold and take shape as the paper heats up in the oven.

Entwistle took on the role of Telus CEO in 2000, while Natale joined in 2003 as a vicepresident and has served as chief commercial officer the past four years. The outgoing CEO will remain with the company in Vancouver after being named executive chairman. Natale will continue working from Toronto. Entwistle was B.C.’s secondhighest paid executive in 2012, earning about $11 million that year.

here were fewer jobs in British Columbia’s high-tech sector in 2012, but wages in that sector spiked, according to a report by BC Stats. Employment in B.C.’s hightech sector dipped 0.2 per cent to 84,070 jobs in 2012, according to BC Stats’ Profile of the British Columbia High Technology Sector: 2013 Edition, released April 3. “A 1.2 per cent drop in employment in the service sector drove the overall drop, as hightech manufacturing industries increased employment by 5.6 per cent,” the report concludes. “Overall, the high-technology sector employed approximately 4.3 per cent of British Columbia’s workforce in 2012.” Despite the drop in employment, wages in that sector increased 7.7 per cent in 2012 to more than $6 billion – the highest increase recorded.

the general economy and 2012 was no exception, as the 3.4 per cent growth in high-tech GDP was double the rate of growth of the industrial aggregate GDP for the province (1.7 per cent). “High technology accounted for approximately 7.6 per cent of British Columbia’s overall economic output in 2012.” It’s clear from the report that many of the new jobs being created in B.C.’s high-tech sector were startups. The province recorded 253 new high-tech businesses in 2012. In total, there were 9,010 high-tech businesses in B.C. in 2012. B.C. high-tech exports in 2012 were valued at $994.3 million, a 10.5 per cent increase over 2011.

he increasing importance of big data in health care was confirmed recently by LifeSciences BC when it awarded the Emerging Life Sciences Company of the Year award to a supercomputing startup. Phemi Health Systems Inc. is not a traditional life sciences company. It has developed a big-data analysis platform that holds promise for things like personalized medicine and medical research, and which is now being tested by St. Paul’s Hospital. “As you think of genomics and the size of the data set that’s going to come out of genomics, Phemi is positioned beautifully to really take advantage of that,” says LifeSciences BC CEO Paul Drohan. Phemi was among the award recipients honoured at LifeSciences BC’s annual awards April 23. The awards were emceed by Bob McDonald, host of CBC’s Quirks and Quarks.

Among the 470 people attending the awards were B.C. Health Minister Terry Lake and Technology Minister Andrew Wilkinson, as well as the People’s Republic of China’s consul for science and technology. “We were thrilled because it signifies to us the importance that governments – not only our own but also international governments – see B.C. as a place where they want to be part of our growing cluster,” Drohan says. Detailed coverage of some of this year’s awards recipients can be found in the annual Life Sciences magazine, which is now online.

LNG

FIRES UP

INDUSTRY INNOVATION New technology monitors gas and pipeline leaks and makes gas fracking safer BY FRANK O’BRIEN

I

f a sour gas wellhead in northern British Columbia begins to leak hydrogen sulphide, it can spell big trouble for anyone nearby. Settling close to the ground and drifting with the wind, hydrogen sulphide in concentrations of 500 parts per million can lead to immediate collapse; a single breath at higher concentrations can kill.

“Traditionally, the alarm for a leak has been a flashing light or an alarm, if there is anyone around to see or hear it,” says Wayne Carlson, president and CEO of Nupoint Systems. The company has developed a sophisticated satellite-linked monitor that immediately flashes warning of a leak or a pipeline spill to the people who can fix it. “This is a real-time solution,” Carlson says. This partially explains why Nupoint has become a goto tech company in B.C.’s booming liquefied natural gas (LNG) industry, where safety and the perception of safety

SCOTT MASON |

have become public touchstones. Nupoint’s wellhead monitors also provide a pragmatic, bottom-line benefit. They deliver consistent and precise flow measurements and reports on the performance of pumps and valves. All the data is available online and can help head off any problems or show an investor how well the play is going. Carlson sees other opportunities in the LNG industry for Nupoint’s rugged wireless transponders, which easily attach to gas equipment or vehicles. Linked to the

CEO, TYCROP MANUFACTURING

We tackled that issue by creating a control system that could be run off of, say, an iPad. The icing on the cake is that we gave the customer the ability to run the entire system with one worker as opposed to eight

Globalstar satellite network, the units can provide twoway communication, including emails, in areas where there is no cellular service. For example, the units could keep track of trucks and other heavy equipment, providing onboard communication and automatic monitoring of speed, direction and run times. “We designed them to work in the most inhospitable environments – on top of a mountain or in the frigid Arctic, for example,” Carlson says. He envisions the book-sized transponders helping LNG companies plan and build pipelines and network remote worksites as the industry expands. “LNG is where the action is now in B.C.,” he says. Another B.C. company has met a demand in the LNG industry for safer and more efficient fracturing. Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, involves pumping a mix of sand, water and chemicals underground at high pressure to fracture shale and release trapped gas. Traditional systems are open and use conveyor systems to move the sand, which can result in sand dust at the well site. Workers exposed to sand dust can develop a lung disease called silicosis. Heavy-equipment maker Tycrop Manufacturing Ltd. has developed a way to do away with the motors and conveyor systems and use gravity to move the sand. The innovation, called SandStorm, is a mobile sandhandling system that dramatically increases setup speed, reduces energy consumption and manpower requirements

01_BCTech 2014 FRONT_01_CS6.indd 13

SandStorm looks like a Patriot missile launcher but has proven to be a safe, efficient system in gas fracking plays | TYCROP Tycrop president and CEO Scott Mason: heavyequipment maker now focusing on the gas and oil industry | TYCROP

and addresses the occupational health hazard of silicosis. Looking a bit like a Patriot missile launcher, each SandStorm unit has three long, rectangular “gravity boxes” where the sand is stored. When the sand needs to be moved, hydraulics lift the boxes and gravity does most of the work. A typical well site might have two to four of these systems, for a total of six to 12 gravity boxes. Chilliwack-based Tycrop was once best known for its forest industry trailers. When that business soured in 2008, the company accelerated a move into the oil and gas sector. Since then, the company’s head count has almost tripled, to 320 today from 110 in 2008, and it has passed the $100

million revenue mark. “In three years, our revenues went over five times what they were,” says Tycrop president and CEO Scott Mason. He added that about 70 per cent of the company’s business now comes from sales of equipment for the oil and LNG sector. SandStorm solves several problems for well service companies working in the fracking fields. “How the equipment was being operated was with anywhere from six to nine workers with headsets and masks and radios all talking over walkie-talkies,” Mason says. “We tackled that issue by creating a control system that could be run off of, say, an iPad. The icing on the cake is that we gave the customer the ability to run the entire system with one worker as opposed to eight.” The systems sell for $1.5 million to $3.5 million each, depending on the scale of the operation. Tycrop has sold more than a dozen SandStorm systems to well service companies in Alberta, Texas, Colorado, Pennsylvania and northeastern B.C.  Ó

MACHINE-TO-MACHINE MOTHERLODE M2M technology expected to become $2 trillion industry within six years

ou know you are living in an ultra-connected world when you have the ability to remotely control the heating in your bathroom floor through a satellite link. And you begin to realize the global potential of machine-to-machine (M2M) technology when a Vancouver controller can track stolen electricity in Brazil or any other country in the world. M2M refers to the connectivity of both wireless and wired systems through cloud, cellular and Wi-Fi networks that can link virtually any electronic machines on the planet. Richmond-based tech giant Sierra Wireless has moved boldly into the M2M environment and is considered a global leader in the field. In March 2014, Sierra acquired Vancouver’s In Motion Technology Inc. for US$21 million.

In Motion has developed technology that turns moving vehicles, typically first responders such as ambulances, police cars and fire engines, into cellular hot spots. During 2013 In Motion generated US$15 million in revenue and its gross margin was a startling 50 per cent of revenue. “We are experiencing unprecedented growth in the market for mobile enterprise solutions,” says In Motion

CEO Dean Rockwell. Sierra Wireless has been refocusing its business to concentrate solely on the M2M space. It now has its wireless devices on more than 80 networks globally and has shipped more than 50 million M2M devices worldwide. It is estimated that 187 million M2M connections are now in place worldwide, but the growth is so rapid and the applications so plentiful that the number will accelerate before you finish this article. M2M is expected to become a $2 trillion industry within six years, when there will be

12.5 billion M2M devices globally, according to U.K.-based Machina Research. For Kevin McElroy, president of Richmond-based Nuheat, M2M is simply a smart way to provide better service to thousands of clients. The 20-year-old, B.C.-born company sells its electric radiant heating systems across Canada and in every U.S. state. In May 2014, it was slated to roll out Nuheat Signature, a $265 Wi-Fi-enabled thermostat that allows clients remote access to all settings through a smartphone app or

a web browser. A homeowner, for example, could change the temperature or monitor energy use from anywhere. There are commercial applications as well, McElroy says. A hotel, for example, could reset the radiant floor heating in any of its suite bathrooms whenever guests depart. “We think Signature is big,” McElroy says. “We went on vacation recently and I had to go to each room in the house to turn off the radiant heating. With Signature, I could have done it all on the way to the airport.” Vancouver-based startup Awesense is also focused on using M2M to save energy, but on a massive scale. Founded in 2009 and a product of the venture acceleration program at Wavefront, Awesense has developed a wireless mobile sensor that clamps to power lines to track technical losses, theft or waste. Awesense monitors can be set up quickly and can pinpoint areas of power loss within days, sometimes hours,

01_BCTech 2014 FRONT_01_CS6.indd 19

compared to weeks or months with traditional methods, says Awesense CEO Mischa Steiner-Jovic. The technology guarantees no power disruption to the customer, and a wireless sensor eliminates the need for bucket trucks and on-site labour. Awesense’s latest system, called True Grid Insight, allows near-immediate analysis of multiple stations across wide-flung grids, with all of the information stored in the cloud and available anywhere at any time. Awesense has landed contracts with major power companies in Canada, the U.S., Europe and Central and South America, and sees enormous potential for continued growth. “Leading customers have been able to reduce theft by over 50 per cent in the last few years while using our system,” Steiner-Jovic says, adding that many clients have also discovered data errors and inefficiencies that, once corrected, improved grid performance. Ó

B.C. SOFTWARE COMPANIES ARE STEALTH SUCCESS STORIES SAP Canada is B.C.’s largest software developer, but few Vancouverites know what the company does

A

sk anyone on the streets of Vancouver who the biggest software or Internet company in B.C. is, and a likely answer might be HootSuite, which now boasts a head count of 500. They might be surprised to learn that a company they may never have heard of, SAP Canada Inc., in fact has that distinction. With a head count of 1,200, the Vancouver office of SAP Canada Inc. is B.C.’s biggest software company. And yet it tends to fly under the radar, along with other global software giants, such as Sage Group and IBM, which also have a significant local presence and which continue to develop innovative products locally. Kirsten Sutton, vice-president and managing director at SAP Labs Canada, a local branch of SAP, thinks her company’s low profile is due partly to the fact it is an enterprise software company, specializing in the needs

01_BCTech 2014 FRONT_01_CS6.indd 20

of organizations rather than individuals, so consumers are not that familiar with its products. Also, because SAP is a global company based in Germany, people tend not to think of SAP Canada in Vancouver. But SAP Labs Canada started out as a homegrown company. Crystal Decisions, founded in 1984, went through several acquisitions before it became Business Objects and was acquired by SAP AG in 2007. “A lot of times startups are built here and then they’re sold and they leave,” says Sutton, who was with Crystal

B.C. computer innovators are stealth success stories

“That’s not been the case in the legacy of this organization. SAP recognized this is an innovation centre and did not want to lose that IP.” SAP is a world leader in in-memory computing, which eliminates computer disk storage and instead uses a computer’s main memory system for storage. It is far faster than traditional computing and therefore capable of analyzing massive amounts of big data – data too large and complex for typical database management systems – in real time.

SAP often partners with other software companies to build new big-data applications on top of SAP’s HANA (high-performance analytical appliance) system. One of those partners is Vancouver’s Phemi Health Systems, a startup co-founded by the high-tech triumvirate of Paul Terry, Adam Lorant and John Seminerio, who founded Abatis Systems, which sold for $1.3 billion, and OctigaBay, which sold for $155 million. SAP Canada’s Vancouver division is one of SAP’s centres of excellence for analytics – a legacy of the business intelligence expertise that developed in Vancouver through companies like Crystal Decisions. One of the new products developed recently by SAP’s Vancouver team is software called Lumira, which helps make sense of big data through visualization. IBM has also been investing in the big-data visualization space. IBM’s local office worked with Simon Fraser University and the University of British Columbia on the Vancouver Institute for Visual Analytics.  One of several corporate donors, IBM contributed $800,000 towards the centre, which computer science students use to develop their skills in the rapidly expanding big-data space. One of IBM’s newest products – developed locally by IBM’s health-care division – is Panorama, which was designed for public health officials to monitor communicable diseases.  It tracks everything from immunization records to disease outbreaks, such as the current measles outbreak in B.C. “The project came up when SARS was an issue in Canada, and this is a result of that,” says Eric Johnson, public-sector associate partner for IBM Canada Ltd.   One of Vancouver’s strengths has been in the area of enterprise software. A number of B.C. enterprise software startups have been acquired by large companies, but many of them kept the talent they acquired here in the Vancouver area.  “We view the Vancouver market as a great technology hub and a great place for us to find very strong talent,” says Nancy Harris, Sage North America’s senior vice-president and general manager for Canada. For more information, visit us online The Sage Group’s Richmond division started out here as Bedford Software, which developed software called Simply Accounting and which bcic.ca went through a series of acquisitions before Sage Group acquired it in 2004. Sage’s Richbcacceleration.ca mond office employs 365 people. Ó

THINKING BIG REAPS HUGE REWARDS FOR CANADIAN STARTUPS

Companies such as HootSuite and BuildDirect are paving the way for new Vancouver companies to attract venture capital

BY NELSON BENNETT

A

city with a high-tech hub is a bit like a shopping mall, says Vancouver expat and Silicon Valley venture capitalist Anthony Lee: it needs the gravity of at least one large anchor tenant to pull in other satellite businesses.

Until recently, Vancouver didn’t have the kind of startup success stories that might draw the eye of Silicon Valley investors northward. In fact, the biggest high-tech news coming out of Canada a couple of years ago was the decline of BlackBerry. But thanks to the growth of companies like HootSuite, Vision Critical, BuildDirect and Avigilon Corp., that is starting to change. “I think it has been difficult in the past, and I think it’s changing,” says Lee, a partner in Altos Ventures. “I think it’s been difficult primarily because Vancouver has not produced a whole lot of big tech winners. “In Canada, you now have companies like Shopify in Ottawa, HootSuite in Vancouver – you are starting to have some billion-dollar-scale companies. Those are, I think, changing the whole story.” Having the TED conferences hosted in Vancouver won’t hurt the local startup community’s profile either, Lee adds, because a lot of Silicon Valley visionaries use those

conferences for networking. Chris Albinson, who is also a Canadian expat and Silicon Valley-based venture capitalist, co-founded C100 with Lee. They formed the organization in 2010 to help Canadian entrepreneurs make connections in Silicon Valley, which is said to be home to 300,000 Canadian expatriates. Albinson, who is also managing director at Founders Circle Capital in San Francisco, agrees with Lee that Silicon Valley venture capitalists seem to be taking a renewed interest in Canadian startups. “We’ve had over US$700 million invested from the U.S., and we’ve had almost US$5 billion in exits,” Albinson says. The single largest venture capital raise in Canada in 2013 was the US$165 million invested in HootSuite. In six years, founder Ryan Holmes has built HootSuite into a 500-person company, and he has resisted all offers to be acquired. One of HootSuite’s earliest investors was Blumberg Capital, which invested a total of US$2 million in the company in two different rounds.

pinnacle of success – I just think that is the wrong way of thinking,� says Albinson. “We really need Canadian entrepreneurs to think about building stand-alone billion-dollar businesses, and I think in Vancouver right now there are at least three that have that potential.� He counts HootSuite, BuildDirect and Vision Critical among those companies.

Silicon Valley venture capitalist David Blumberg was an early investor in HootSuite Trulioo co-founder and CEO Stephen Ufford moved to Silicon Valley for a few months and ended up with $8 million in venture capital

Venture capital investment in B.C. more than doubled in a year Canadian companies received $2 billion in venture capital in 2013 – a 31 per cent increase over 2012, according to Canada’s Venture Capital and Private Equity Association. It was the highest level of venture capital invested in Canada since 2007. Twenty-four per cent of that $2 billion was invested in B.C., with 35 per cent going to Ontario companies and 30 per cent to Quebec. The largest single deal in Canada was the US$165 million invested in HootSuite. Foreign investment in Canadian companies more than doubled, from $384 million in 2012 to $828 million in 2013, and venture capital investment in B.C. more than doubled between 2012 and 2013, from $198 million to $478 million. Ó

“We invested over $2 million and have already taken home about $46 million, and have a whole other big chunk of the company in our possession,â€? says David Blumberg, who founded Blumberg Capital. “We’re still large shareholders there.â€? Blumberg has a new $150 million fund – its third – and the first investment from that pool was in another Vancouver startup, Trulioo, which developed login authentication software that allows people to sign into websites using their Facebook or Twitter IDs. Blumberg led the investment in Trulioo with US$2 million, and others have since followed. In March, Trulioo raised another US$6 million in a Series A financing. But just because Silicon Valley venture capitalists are starting to take an interest in Canada, that doesn’t mean they are parachuting into B.C. with bags of money. In Trulioo’s case, co-founder and CEO Stephen Ufford ended up having to move to Silicon Valley for a few months because he just couldn’t find the capital he needed to get Trulioo off the ground in Canada. “I had to go down there to get Trulioo going,â€? Ufford says. “The issue with Vancouver is that everything is at a much smaller scale, so the Invest North FraserÂłWKHHFRQRPLFSDUWQHUVKLSRI0DSOH5LGJH appetite for risk is also much smaller. In Silicon Valley, the opposite dynamic is true in that the 0LVVLRQDQG3LWW0HDGRZVÂłKHOSVEXLOGDZDUHQHVVRIWKHVLJQLILFDQW funds are just so much larger.â€? LQYHVWPHQWRSSRUWXQLWLHVLQWKHUHJLRQ7RJHWKHUZH¡YHGHYHORSHG Although Vancouver startups looking for venture capital don’t necessarily need to move to LQQRYDWLYHWRROVDQGUHVRXUFHVWRKHOSORFDOEXVLQHVVHVVXFFHHG Silicon Valley, they need to make connections there. A good way of doing that is getting acTrueNorthFraser.com VXSSRUWVDJULFXOWXUHDQG cepted into Vancouver’s GrowLab, Albinson says.

h i n k that lea rn i ng to code is out of your grasp? Think again. The talent crunch in Vancouver’s booming tech sector has been w idely documented, with HootSuite CEO Ryan Holmes claiming that at the current hiring pace, his company’s existing job openings won’t be filled until late 2017.

Yet despite coding’s undisputed position at the top of the career skills food chain, many would-be tech employees are struggling to leap into the mysterious world of computer programming. Fear of the unknown “People have always wanted to program, but they’ve been afraid because they thought they’d need to be rocket scientists,” says Malcolm Ferrier, who heads up the business IT management program at the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT).

Modelled after the likes of Toronto’s Bitmaker Labs, these courses boast a hands-on, practical focus on cutting-edge skills that the industry demands. “T he ma i n th i ng is lea rn i ng by doi ng,” says Jay Holtslander, co-founder of CodeCore, a Vancouver coding school that offers boot camps in Ruby on Rails and iOS. A few blocks away at Launch Academy, coding school Lighthouse Labs sends its graduates on paid internships to help them put those practical skills to work. The results speak for themselves: every single graduate has been hired. “Our biggest competition right now is perception,” says Jeremy Shaki, co-founder at Lighthouse Labs. The perceived complexity of tech skills, he says, means that people are skeptical about whether they can learn so much in so little time. “Changing your career is a huge risk,” says Shaki, “but some of the jobs are so interesting that it’s worth it.” Ó

B.C.’S RENEWABLE ENERGY COMPANIES

ritish Columbia’s burgeoning clean-tech industry is set to become a point of pride for a province hoping to be a green leader. With its reputation for technological excellence, the sector is supporting the global fight against climate change while creating thousands of jobs right here.

But ask those homegrown companies about the reason for their success and chances are they will point to lucrative contracts abroad rather than encouragement in their own backyard. Take Corvus Energy of Richmond, for example, and its state-of-the-art lithium-ion batteries, developed for marine propulsion but now used for other heavy-power needs as well. It just signed a deal with one of Europe’s

01_BCTech 2014 FRONT_01_CS6.indd 30

largest ferry operators to provide integrated energy storage systems for three hybrid ferries. The ferries, which sail every half-hour between Denmark and Germany, will be the largest fleet of hybrid vessels in operation, Corvus says in a news release, adding that the result will be significantly reduced greenhouse gas emissions, lower maintenance costs and better engine performance. But Corvus was shut out of an opportunity

B.C.’s renewable energy companies develop locally, sell globally

to install the same technology in B.C.’s own ferries. Or consider Endurance Wind Power of Surrey, which has manufactured and sold hundreds of small turbines for homeowners, businesses and institutions around the world but had little uptake in Canada. The company has instead turned its attention to the United Kingdom, where it recently installed its 500th turbine and even opened a new manufacturing plant in the West Midlands, one that is expected to become a centre for international exports and produce 100 farm turbines a year. Randeep Dosanjh, Endurance’s marketing specialist, says the United Kingdom is a prime location for the company because of high energy prices and financial incentives to encourage Britons to generate their own power and sell any excess back to the grid. Since B.C. does not have such “feed-in” tariffs, or comparable energy prices, Endurance sees little local potential, Dosanjh says. “You’re not going to find a bunch of our turbines here at all.” Reliance on offshore markets is typical for B.C.’s renewable energy companies. “It’s a common theme in B.C.’s clean-tech sector,” says Jill Tipping, a vice-president of Schneider Electric’s solar business in Burnaby. “We develop technology locally and deploy it globally.” B.C. has more than 200 clean-tech companies with annual revenues of about $2.5 billion – but most of the business is export-oriented. Having a strong economy in B.C. has helped clean-tech companies get established, but continued growth requires increased consistent financial support, Tipping says. This year’s provincial budget offered some encouragement, by extending B.C.’s scientific research and experimental development (SRED) tax credit for three years, but more

help is needed, she says. The government should make the SRED a permanent measure while also offering more direct funding for research and development, she adds. “Government incentives can really encourage the take-up of new alternatives, but we haven’t seen much of that in Canada. Not as much as we saw in the past in places like Germany, Italy and Spain, or as much as we’re seeing today from the U.S., Japan, Thailand [and] Australia.” Grant Brown, global marketing vice-president for Corvus, says clean-tech companies in B.C. have, by and large, created their own success with little help from governments, apart from the trade commissioners who facilitate introductions abroad. “A lot of [politicians] pay lip service to the idea of helping the clean-tech sector, but really the focus is on mineral extraction,” he says. “It’s been the status quo for so long that our entire country is dependent upon it.” Globe Advisors, a Vancouver sustainability consulting firm, says B.C. is a clean-tech leader, but public policy lags. “Greater support for developing the province’s expertise and the ability to exploit both domestic and international opportunities is paramount to this sector’s success,” it states in a 2012 report. Not enough Canadian companies and institutions are buying clean technologies developed locally, says an Action Canada task force, and that impedes growth by suggesting a lack of confidence at home. Heightened concern about carbon emissions and climate change, especially given dire warnings in a recent United Nations climate report, might eventually push politicians to act. But industry representatives suggest an upsurge in Canadian energy prices would be more effective. Ó

THE 100-MILE DIET FOR B.C. Bill Tam | How localism can work for our technology industry

B

uy Local. These two words have a far-reaching impact on us as consumers. Sometimes called “localism,” this change in consumer buying habits is about building communities that are more healthy and sustainable – backed by local economies that are stronger and more resilient. It means we use regional resources to meet our needs. There have been numerous studies on the impact of buying local and the economic benefits that result from doing so. A study by the American Independent Business Alliance shows that dollars spent at local businesses create a multiplier in the local economy, meaning that for each dollar spent at a local business, up to 3.5 times as much wealth is generated in the local economy, compared with a dollar spent at chain-owned businesses. A similar study by Civic Economics showed that B.C.-based independent businesses tend to produce three times the economic output that chains generate, and that for every $1 million in revenue, independent businesses create 10 jobs compared with only four for chains. Localism has become prevalent in our personal lives, influencing where we buy our food and clothing, the restaurants we frequent and the service providers we engage. Yet when it comes to business and government, localism takes a back seat. A decision to purchase from out-of-country suppliers rather than from a local

01_BCTech 2014 FRONT_01_CS6.indd 33

supplier with a comparable product is today’s norm. B.C.’s technology sector is a great example of an industry that has encountered this challenge for decades. Our province is home to technology businesses that have products and services to support literally every industry in B.C. Not only would a culture of localism for B.C. tech deliver the same economic benefits as cited above, but a growing technology sector further diversifies our economy and creates more job opportunities. A local customer base serves as an essential catalyst for any business – close proximity to customers allows for rapid feedback, faster response rates and product improvements. And it offers the benefit of having a strong, local advocate – a reference customer to call upon when prospecting for new customers and market opportunities. From the customer’s perspective, purchasing local technology can save time and money – close proximity reduces response times during critical product design and installation phases. Additionally and more importantly, companies have an opportunity to gain a competitive advantage through the swift

adoption of innovative solutions. When B.C. businesses and governments buy locally, they grow and advance B.C. tech companies in a meaningful, market-driven way. The revenues remain in the province, helping to fuel the growth of local companies, attracting highly skilled talent and creating resources to compete on a global scale. Of course, not everything can be procured through local tech companies, but by adopting a culture of localism, we would stand to benefit from seeding a virtuous cycle; making a commitment to purchase “made in B.C.” technology helps our tech companies grow into larger companies, spin off new companies, create new innovations for people to use – and the cycle continues. This level of activity creates economic conditions that will improve the fortunes of all British Columbians, helping to further establish B.C. not only as the best place to live, work and play, but also as the perfect environment to start and grow a business. It’s a win-win for everyone. Ó Bill Tam is president and CEO of the BC Technology Industry Association.

ancouver is known as a city of startups, with small technology companies making headlines and taking up cramped office space. But it’s the suburb of Burnaby where the larger, industrial side of technology innovation is being developed, by big teams with multimillion-dollar investments in sprawling laboratories.

With its proximity to Vancouver and abundance of commercial real estate, Burnaby has become British Columbia’s go-to location for innovative technology in the past couple of decades, and the city has been host to groundbreaking tech since the ’70s. Ballard Power Systems started business in the city in 1979, doing research and development into protonexchange-membrane fuel cell technology. Since then, it’s gone from R&D to manufacturing, and it was one of the first major companies to market fuel cells as a viable power alternative for automobiles and backup power stations. “Essentially all of our business is done outside of Canada,” says Christopher Guzy, Ballard’s chief technology officer. “The reason we’re here is it was an industrial park that was set up, and it was just an attractive place to have both an R&D facility and a manufacturing facility.” According to Guzy, Ballard doesn’t plan on going anywhere else soon, as the area’s capacity for production and manufacturing facilities has been important in allowing the company to transition into new areas as they’ve adapted to changing realities in science and market demands. “Really, our competition is still the incumbent technologies, so improvements in batteries are much more a competitive threat to us than another fuel cell company,” Guzy says. “We sell fuel cell stacks to a couple of companies that directly compete with us because what we’re trying to do is make fuel cell technology more widely available, and we can make our money in a number of different ways.” Fuel cells are considered a “disruptive” or substitution technology – in that they replace existing forms of power storage such as lithium-ion batteries – and many of the distruptive technology companies in Burnaby are engaging in similar business models. General Fusion was started in 2002 in Burnaby by Michel Laberge to research the potential of hydrogen fusion as an alternative source of power generation. In 2009, the company expanded into a fully staffed production laboratory. Like Ballard, General Fusion deals with infant technology that is subject to massive change between the concept and market stages. “Really, the way the world is right now, the biggest obstacle that fusion has is being considered as a potential solution in the broader energy industry,” says Laberge, who is General Fusion’s vice-president of sales. “People think of it as a little more science fiction, so success by any player, whether it’s ourselves or the government labs, it’s going to help everybody. Our competition is Mother Nature; it’s figuring out how to make this work.” Convincing investors and skeptics that the technology works is often the most difficult part in developing new technology. D-Wave Systems is a quantum computing company that was founded in Burnaby in 1999. Its chief technology officer, Geordie Rose, has spent much of the past 15 years swaying investors and the scientific community to take the technology seriously. “This field is a little bit peculiar in that most of the people who consider themselves experts in the field, or call themselves experts in quantum computing, have never built anything,” says Rose. “Organizations tend to fight new ideas. It’s kind of like an immune system response.

People think of it as a little more science fiction, so success by any player, whether it’s ourselves or the government labs, it’s going to help everybody. Our competition is Mother Nature; it’s figuring out how to make this work

You see this in big companies all the time.” A quantum computer is a computer that can potentially solve computational problems far faster than traditional binary computers, and D-Wave is still the only major company that’s put into practice what’s long been a theoretical science. Through companies like Ballard, General Fusion and D-Wave, Burnaby has established itself as one of B.C.’s central technology innovation centres, and Guzy believes that the area will continue to draw large-scale tech business in the future. “In terms of, say, Burnaby versus Vancouver versus Surrey, I’m not sure it isn’t just a simple question [of real] estate prices in the Lower Mainland.” Ó

A NEW DIMENSION TO INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY LAWS Vincent K.S. Yip and Todd A. Rattray | The advent of 3D printing raises unique challenges for rights holders

T

he technology underlying 3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, began development in the late ’80s. Since that time, 3D printing has been restricted mainly to industrial use. Recently, the expiration of key platform patents and maturation of the technology has permitted various organizations to commercialize smaller 3D printers, which can cost less than $1,000. In some countries, people can also access 3D printing services at office supply retailers, such as UPS and Staples stores. Companies such as MakerBot have also commercialized low-cost 3D scanning solutions to allow products to be scanned and then reproduced through 3D printing. The emergence of high-quality 3D scanning and 3D printing may disrupt product design, manufacturing and distribution in a manner similar to the disruption of the publishing industry when photocopiers became widely available. The four principal types of intellectual property rights, namely patents, trademarks, copyright and industrial designs, continue to be relevant for rights holders. Owners of patents/ industrial design registrations can stop those who make, use and/or sell things embodying the registered design. Trademark owners can stop others from using a confusingly

similar trademark, and copyright owners can prevent unauthorized reproduction of copyright-protected works. As an example, Fernando Sosa, a fan of HBO’s television series Game of Thrones, 3D-printed a phone dock based on the “Iron Throne” from the series. He modelled the throne using still images and began taking pre-orders for the dock. HBO sent a cease-and-desist letter to Sosa, alleging copyright infringement in the throne design. While HBO succeeded in stopping Sosa’s infringement, the example shows how these infringements may tend to be on a smaller scale and may be done for non-commercial purposes. Rights holders may need to devote resources to monitoring infringement and potentially tackling a large number of infringers, who may be “end users” – individuals making things for their own use, not for commercial benefit. Not only are the damages recoverable from these infringers likely to be low, but the enforcement of IP rights against end users is always a sensitive issue, since it may attract bad publicity. Depending on the right being enforced, rights holders may also face other issues. For instance, under trademark law, if the infringer is not selling the 3D-printed product under the confusingly similar trademark,

then it would be difficult to succeed on a trademark infringement action. For copyright owners, the recently amended Canadian Copyright Act reduced the amount of statutory damages recoverable against individuals who infringed copyright for non-commercial purposes, and includes a user-generated content exception that allows copyrightprotected content to be incorporated into new works without a licence, provided that, among other requirements, use of the new work is for non-commercial purposes. For patents holders, while a claim may be infringed by a product created by 3D printing and embodying the claimed elements, it may be difficult to enforce claims tied to manufacturing processes, since large-scale manufacturing would typically use processes that differ from 3D printing. As 3D printing becomes more widely adopted and more products are made using the technology, Canadian intellectual property laws, which were developed in accordance with a traditional product distribution model, may need to adapt to better balance the interests of the rights holders and the end users. Ó Vincent K.S. Yip and Todd A. Rattray are intellectual property lawyers with Oyen Wiggs Green & Mutala LLP in Vancouver.

Vancouver-based Innovator is Industry’s Best-kept Secret Xodo: Reimagining How the World Works with Documents

W

e live in a connected world, but it’s not without frustration: devices don’t sync, files won’t open, and apps aren’t available on every platform. What frustrates many is that most apps we use rely upon different file formats that are incompatible with one another. Services such as Google Docs or MS Office excel at document authoring in a specific domain but they fail to provide cross-platform consistency, rendering them ineffective for general sharing and collaboration outside of their platforms. For example, although Google Docs works well with—and easily supports collaboration on—simple office documents, it is not a replacement for the more extensive MS Office Suite or a sophisticated design tool such as Adobe InDesign. However, MS Office and InDesign are not easy to configure for live collaboration and typically require everyone to be on the same platform. Current solutions to these problems, such as attaching PDFs to an email, are less than satisfactory: “What is the content we are talking about?”; “Can you resend that to me?”; “My computer can’t open that file.” Xodo solve s the se probl e m s — and more—by letting everyone work on the same page, at the same time, from any web browser or mobile device. And it’s free. The first tool of its kind to feature real-time PDF collaboration through web browsers, Xodo allows groups to view and annotate documents simultaneously across mobile and web platforms without awkward attachments or software installs. Users of the Xodo app (available on all major mobile platforms and devices including iOS, Android, Windows 8) can work with anyone from anywhere simply by sharing a web link. This makes Xodo a fantastic complement to—rather than replacement for—Google Docs, MS Office, and other document creation systems. Faster and able to handle more complex documents than most of its competitors, Xodo combines slick rendering with an elegant interface and a host of valuable features. Users can edit, comment,

01_BCTech 2014 FRONT_01_CS6.indd 43

highlight, draw, bookmark, fill and submit forms, and sign contracts—including encrypted or highly complex PDFs—then save, upload, and manage files via seamless Dropbox sync. Besides being a great editing tool for pulling together publications, proposals, technical documents, etc., Xodo’s unique interactive qualities also make it a flexible cross-platform presentation and teaching tool. Interested readers can explore Xodo in more detail and grab the app at xodo. com.

PDFTron: The Powerhouse Behind Xodo Xodo is powered by PDFTron’s trusted, industry-leading document technology, PDFNet SDK. Xodo users benefit from PDFTron’s extensive experience, receiving top performance, reliability, and functionality from a well-established industry influencer and a known innovator in the field. PDFTron’s components power wellknown commercial products and services from companies such as Microsoft, HP, Autodesk, FedEx, Intuit, Brother International, Toshiba, AT&T, Vodafone and many others. Founded in 1998, PDFTron was among the first companies outside of Adobe to offer PDF solutions. The company has concentrated its long-term R&D investments on developing top-quality, industrial-strength library components which allow enterprises to focus their own development resources on areas that differentiate them from competitors. Today, PDFTron Systems Inc. is a premier provider of standards-based document technologies related to PDF, XPS, SVG, ePub, MS Office, HTML, and other graphic file formats. The company has maintained active involvement with the

PDF standard for more than a decade. As one of Canada’s current representatives to the ISO PDF Committee, PDFTron helps shape the evolution of PDF technology. Notably the first to offer consistent PDF support on all major mobile platforms, PDFTron continues to innovate with its latest offering, WebViewer, which enables universal document viewing, annotation and processing across platforms independent of any third-party software. Best of all, they’re born and bred in Vancouver. Remarkably, PDFTron rose from a start-up to a well-established company that punches well above its weight without any external financial backing. It has relied on bootstrapping and reinvesting profits back into the company to nourish growth, always maintaining focus on what’s important—customers. “We want to push our limits and solve customer pains, while doing what we love,” said Catherine Andersz, Director of Business Development. “The goal is constant innovation… exploring market trends, listening to customer needs and thinking outside-the-box.” Judging from the pace of PDFTron’s growth, these principles appear to be the key to its success. In an effort to keep up with the ever-increasing demand for its solutions, the company is always on the lookout for top local talent to join the team. “Our entrepreneurial culture promotes self-expression and rewards initiative. Everyone on our team loves a challenge— we work hard and are passionate about what we do, in and out of the office. This is what makes us tick.”

Cleanest Water at the Lowest Cost™ Treating high concentrations of toxic organics, ammonia, and other industrial wastewater pollutants is a multi-billion dollar problem for heavy industry. To date, there has been no economical solution as chemical and biological technologies are either ineffective or too expensive. This led former fuel cell engineer, Colleen Legzdins, to invent Axine’s electrolytic oxidation cell technology.

organizations across the planet. To accomplish this, video and still imagery of the Earth will be captured, streamed, collected, and distributed to UrtheCast’s data partners and to the company’s interactive platform. To date, UrtheCast has signed 16 distributors of Earth Observation data globally, representing minimum commitments around $26 million annually. The company was one of the few Canadian companies to go public in 2013 and it has quickly grown to become a global corporation with over 70 employees.

In early 2013, Schneider Electric’s Solar Business made a crucial decision to proceed with development of a revolutionary 1500V power conversion platform for utility-scale solar plants. A critical first step was to design and build a $13M, 20,000 sq. ft. high power MicroGrid Lab. With the lab complete, Schneider Electric now has the in-house capability to test revolutionary products at power levels unprecedented in solar. Plus, its team has created a strategic market advantage through the innovative technology and knowledge it has acquired.

PERSON OF THE YEAR

SPONSORED BY ALLSTREAM

Recognizing an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the BC technology community in the past year

Building an Industry from Scratch Since founding Westport Innovations in 1995, David Demers has led its growth from five employees to now over 1000 worldwide. Using technology originally developed at UBC, Demers and Westport have worked to make natural gas a costeffective and environmentally-friendly alternative to diesel engines. Under Demer’s leadership, Westport has taken a strong partnership approach to commercialization. Leveraging large industry players, Westport focuses on research and development while partners provide the manufacturing and distribution networks necessary for scale. Demers

also stewards growth by reinvesting cashflow from Westport’s profitable businesses into more strategic and diverse long-term markets. Starting with Cummins Inc. in 2001, Westport is now partnered with several global players including Caterpillar, General Motors, Ford, Volvo, Weichei, China’s largest heavy-duty engine manufacturer, and Tata Motors, India’s largest automotive company. They have moved Westport from beachheads in city buses and garbage trucks to new markets including long-haul trucks, cars and light duty trucks and rail.

Demers is an enthusiastic champion for BC: working to leverage the Province’s investment in LNG infrastructure; reinvesting in research at local academic institutions; and providing strong support to build technology leaders through the BCTIA’s Centre4Growth program. Prior to founding Westport, Demers served with IBM Canada for several years before forming his own consulting firm to grow local start-ups.
