elcome to BC TECH – the first of Business in Vancouver’s re-engineered annual glossy magazines that are delivered to all subscribers. Our magazines have been a key part of BIV’s content package for several years – covering not only the province’s tech scene, but also event planning, green business, commercial real estate, executive education, and, of course, our well-known industry lists. Together with access to our daily news feed, website and flagship weekly newspaper, the magazines help complete the picture for business decision-makers seeking deeper insight into a particular topic or issue. The re-design of the magazines – starting with BC TECH – is key to our thinking. We wanted to create a set of magazines that deliver strong news value as well as an overview of a particular sector. What you’ll find in our magazines will be consistent: features and profiles on key businesspeople and companies, insight into important issues facing business and info-graphics that

help deepen your understanding of a topic, as well as our BIV lists and directories that give you a reason to read and keep handy the magazines as a reference tool. For this issue of BC TECH, our choice of cover subject is timely. In Shannon Rogers, president and general counsel of Global Relay, we are highlighting one of the major Vancouver tech success stories of the past decade. Global Relay has exploded from 30 employees to 300 staff in just a few years, as banks and regulators across the world enrol it to help dig Europe out of its financial mess (see page 14). Ms. Rogers is a brilliant example to all entrepreneurs – not least, female tech innovators, also showcased within these pages (page 14). What is striking about B.C.’s tech scene is the extent to which it reaches beyond Metro Vancouver, with Vancouver Island, the Thompson Okanagan and the Kootenay region being important sources of talent and ideas, as our info-graphic illustrates (page 38). We’re delighted to be shining a light on B.C.’s tech story. Enjoy the new magazine! Ă

Avcorp sees decline in revenue after loss of Cessna contract

Canadian cellphone bills rise 13 per cent since start of year: report

D

elta’s Avcorp Industries Inc. saw a decline in revenue after losing Cessna Aircraft Co. as a client. Avcorp reported $440,000 income from operations in 2013’s first quarter, compared with $860,000 in 2012’s first quarter. The aircraft-components maker had been embroiled in a lawsuit with Cessna over a long-term supplier agreement signed in 2001. In 2003, Cessna started sourcing components from another company. In 2010, when the Cessna contract made up 40 per cent of

Avcorp’s revenue, Cessna told Avcorp it would move to other suppliers and in-house production. Cessna alleged the contract hadn’t been exclusive and Avcorp had regularly shipped defective products. But an arbitration panel ruled in favour of Avcorp. In May a U.S. district judge upheld a $27.4 million award to Avcorp, which Cessna had disputed.

J.D. Power & Associates report shows the average Canadian cellphone bill has increased $9 since 2012 to $77 per month. Vancouver telecom watchdog OpenMedia.ca says, given the inflation rate has been 1 per cent since the start of 2013, a 13 per cent increase for mobile service proves Canadians are being gouged by Telus, Bell and Rogers. “Cellphone service in Canada should be affordable for everyone,” says OpenMedia executive director Steve Anderson. “Even in

ancouver’s LX Ventures, the high-tech incubator headed by Mike Edwards, is acquiring startup Sosido Networks for somewhere in the $300,000 range. Sosido is an online knowledgeexchange community designed to improve the way health-care professionals share information and collaborate. Earlier this year, LX bought Vancouver startup Mobio Technologies, which connects fans with entertainers, as well as Weeve. it, a crowdfunding platform for charities.

“Sosido has recently commercialized and is seeing strong growth of its platform and users, so the timing of the acquisition is ideal for L XV,” says Edwards, who founded the high-tech accelerator GrowLab and has invested in a number of successful startups including Punch’d, which sold to Google in 2011, and Summify, acquired by Twitter last year.

B.C. employees more likely than average to telecommute: BMO

Vancouver company unveils world’s smallest HD dome camera

ompanies in B.C. are more likely than those in other provinces to offer a telecommuting option to employees. A BMO study found 26 per cent of B.C. businesses offer staff the option of working remotely from outside the office compared with 23 per cent Canadawide. Nationwide, of companies that do offer telecommuting, 65 per cent say it has a positive impact on productivity; 58 per cent say it improves work quality. Other reasons for offering telecommuting: its positive impact on

morale (which ties in to attracing and retaining employees) and a reduction in office and overhead expenses. “Canadian businesses are fighting to be flexible, innovative and enticing by offering incentives that will benefit not only the organization, but also their employees,” says Steve Murphy, senior vice-president, commercial banking, BMO Bank of Montreal.

vigilon, a video-surveillance equipment and sof tware company based in Vancouver, has created what it says is the smallest HD dome camera in the world. Slightly larger than a golf ball and weighing in at just 70 grams, the HD Micro Dome uses a smart cable that enables the product’s diminutive size. “Stores, hotels, office buildings and restaurants want discreet cameras that provide exceptional image detail,” says Avigilon senior product manager Rick Ramsay. “Traditionally, you could get one

BULLISH ON EUROPE, BIG ON BIKES BOB MACKIN

| BMACKIN@BIV.COM

S

hannon Rogers may be in the minority when she says it’s a great time to do business in

Europe. But, as president and general counsel of Global Relay – a Vancouver firm that’s help-

ing to clean up the mess left by financial scandals that rocked the world economy – chances are she knows what she’s talking about. In the U.K., London is particularly important for Rogers’ company: Global Relay is playing a key role for investigators getting to the bottom of the

LIBOR (London Interbank Offered Rate) scandal.

SHANNON ROGERS | PRESIDENT AND GENERAL COUNSEL, GLOBAL RELAY If [Bernie] Madoff had been using an archive like ours, some of his scandals would’ve been found out a long time ago


| 11

“As it’s all come to light, Global Relay was holding the data for most of the banks that were involved with that, and that has catapulted our business in Europe,” Rogers says by phone from London. “We ended up doing a very good job of producing it for the courts and for the regulators, which has led to a lot more business over here.” North America, she adds, is more regulated than Europe, which has been behind in understanding regulation around the financial sector – but not anymore. “It’s catching up quickly and that has helped our business. It’s a great time to be in Europe and building the business here. Europe is very much open to cloud-based technology.” Global Relay exploded from 30 employees to 200 staff in the last three years as a result of the Great Recession, and now boasts offices in New York, Chicago, Singapore, Shanghai and, of course, London. It serves 15,000 customers in 90 countries, including 22 of the world’s top 25 banks. According to Rogers, there’s hardly a corporate lawsuit these days not involving email, communications via social media and instant messaging. Someone’s got to archive it, and Global Relay is the leader. It’s all about investor protection. “If [Bernie] Madoff had been using an archive like ours, some of his scandals would’ve been found a long time ago,” Rogers explains.

Global Relay, which added 40 employees by early April and expects to reach 300 staff members by yearend, occupies the second, third and sixth floors, plus the roof, of the seven-floor Leckie Building in Gastown. If space becomes scarce, Rogers says the company has an option to take over the rest of the former warehouse and factory, which was built in 1908 and renovated in 1991. She attributes much of the growth to numerous lawsuits coming out of 2008. The data of those lawsuits, she says, comes to Global Relay, where “we’ll turn it around for an audit or an e-discovery.” Rogers, who was born in Calgary and raised in West Vancouver, holds degrees in political science, political economy and law. She first honed her corporate securities law specialty at McGill University and, later, with McCarthy Tétrault in Toronto and Borden Ladner Gervais in Vancouver. “She’s got a great personality, is very calm and always finds a way forward in difficult times,” says Global Relay CEO Warren Roy. “You face a lot of challenges in business and Shannon has always been able to

figure out how to get through them, even if they look like impenetrable obstacles.” Last year the company took a big risk to not only sponsor but also organize the annual Global Relay Gastown Grand Prix bike race. The highlight of BC Superweek became a brand-awareness and team-building exercise for the firm, which plans to continue its involvement with the event for the next four years. The 2013 race is on July 10. “We didn’t know what that was going to do to our business, because obviously that’s not the crowd you sell our thriving technology to, but we had such good support and feedback,” Rogers says. “When you give something to the local community, it’s amazing what comes back. It has helped grow our business in Vancouver as far as hiring great talent and employees, which is one of the most difficult things to do. It helped tremendously.” Along the way, Global Relay also got to know Olympic cyclists and hopefuls, which allowed it to launch the Global Relay Bridge the Gap Fund (committing $400,000 over four years) to assist elite athletes on

the cusp of receiving Sport Canada funding. Rogers, who is a booster of women in technology, says she also wants to see the women’s division expand on the streets of Gastown. “This year there were probably 100 men cyclists, but only 35 to 40 women, so we’re trying to make greater efforts to get the women out to the event,” she says. The company’s other priority this year is finishing its $20 million, 20,000square-foot data centre in North Vancouver, which will employ an evaporative cooling system (instead of air conditioning) and have lower operating costs and be environmentally friendly. “Warren and I and our company are so privileged to hold the data of some of the most powerful companies,” Rogers says. “We do want to build a billion-dollar company in Canada; we feel a responsibility to pass that on and educate people coming up.” Asked why she feels it’s important to support Canadian technology companies, Rogers’ response comes quickly, simple and to the point: “Because we can do great things in the world.” Á

DEFENCE AND SECURITY TECHNOLOGY Shannon Byrne Susko, president and CEO, Subserveo Inc. For Shannon Byrne Susko, leading a tech company is a lot like playing sports: both require an ability to work with and relate to people. “You learn leadership on the field, how to work in unison with your teammates,” says Byrne Susko, who played varsity sports throughout university. “I also learned how to win and how to lose.” Head of Subserveo, which provides automated brokerage compliance solutions to retail and institutional broker-dealers and wealth-management firms, Byrne Susko remains involved in coaching today. “You really learn to relate to and work with other people, which absolutely translates to the business world,” she says.

DEFENCE AND SECURITY TECHNOLOGY Shannon Rogers, president and general counsel, Global Relay Shannon Rogers never thought she’d head up a company specializing in electronicmessage archiving. But the case for a career shift was on the docket all along. “I realized I had to take this ticket and do what I wanted with it,” says Rogers of her law degree. She helped grow Global Relay from a fledgling startup to a company whose client list includes 22 of the world’s 25 largest banks. “It took me a long time to figure out how to use my legal background in a way that I felt passionate about,” Rogers says. “You always have to follow your passion.” (Read more about Rogers and Global Relay on page 10.)

E-COMMERCE Shahrzad Rafati, founder and CEO, BroadbandTV Corp. Shahrzad Rafati has solved one of the stickiest problems on the Internet: how to pay video, television and movie creators whose content is pirated. “We wanted to put the content providers back in control and … help the fans share the content, but in the right way,” Rafati says. She and her team have created technology that places ads next to pirated video and funnels the revenue back to the publisher. BroadbandTV also helps amateur video-makers distribute, track and profit from their content.

SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT Kristine Steuart, CEO, and Katherine Berry, chief product officer, Allocadia As identical twins, Allocadia cofou nders K r ist i ne Steu a r t a nd Katherine Berry share many of the same traits – but not all. “We don’t have the same skill set,” says Steuart of herself and her sister. “Rather, our skills are complementary. So, as business partners, we work better as a pair.” “We’re similar to [Vancouver Canucks] Henrik and Daniel Sedin in that respect,” adds Berry. “We bounce ideas off each other like they pass a hockey puck back and forth between them. It would be silly to separate us.” To that end, Berry d rives the

Vancouver-based software company’s overall product strategy while Steuart leads the team with a guiding vision: to help businesses improve their marketing ROI. Despite their unique and separate roles, the twins share a passion for technology. “I started by designing websites in my spare time as a hobby, and that eventually turned into a full-time endeavour,” Berry explains. “I love the creative aspect of high-tech, as well as the constantly changing landscape that requires you to stay on your toes.” “From day 1 of my career I’ve always wanted to be a part of this industry,” Steuart agrees. “As soon as I landed my first job in high-tech, I never looked back.”

SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT Lisa Payne, COO, Colligo Networks Inc. Describing her current role, Colligo Networks COO Lisa Payne keeps it short and sweet. “I help tech companies grow to the next level by making them scalable,” she says, added that her passion really lies with those she assists. “I love working with these super-smart people – that’s why I’m in technology.” Despite some challenges, Payne anticipates a bright future for B.C.’s tech industry. “We haven’t yet figured out how to take advantage of our own strengths and uniqueness so we can be the best we can be,” she says. “But I believe we’d be world class if we stood on our own platform.”

SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT Judi Hess, CEO, Copperleaf Technologies Inc. Before joining Copperleaf Technologies, Judi Hess rose from program manager to president of Creo Inc. in seven short years. Today she delivers a software solution to help businesses make better investment decisions. In total, Hess has been involved in B.C.’s tech industry since 1981. “Unfortunately, that’s over 30 years!” she laughs. “The good thing is, I’ve seen it grow and been a part of that.” Hess says she’s also enjoyed helping local technology companies expand. “I have been fortunate to grow and succeed while living in one of the best cities in the world,” she says. “I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

“The industry seems reinvigorated with new entrepreneurial energy,” she continues. “Great talent is available, funding opportunities are on the rise – and where else in the world would you want to live?”

GOVERNMENT Lynette Hughes, chief information officer, British Columbia Lottery Corporation Lynette Hughes, who leads a team of over 200 people that provides the strategy, processes and systems to support the British Columbia Lottery Corp.’s (BCLC) $2.7 billion gambling entertainment business, says she’s proud to be part of the local technology industry. “In the last decade there has been remarkable growth in this sector,” says Hughes, whose responsibilities range from transformation strategy and business modernization to enterprise architecture and the infrastructure and technology for lottery, casino, bingo and Internet gambling, as well as backoffice systems. “Certainly here at BCLC, we pride ourselves as leaders of technology innovation in the gambling industry,” she continues. “This speaks to the level of talent that is attracted to, and has been cultivated within, our province.”

LIFE SCIENCES Natalie Dakers, CEO, CDRD Ventures Inc. Much of Natalie Dakers’ career has been spent at the interface between academia and industry in an effort to help commercialize health technologies. “It’s an interesting space [that’s] attracting considerable interest given the challenges of limited capital,” says Dakers, who currently heads up the Centre for Drug Research Development’s commercialization vehicle, CDRD Ventures Inc. “There’s a growing need in the life-sciences and global health-care industry for new approaches to access commercially promising early-stage technologies,” she explains. “CVI provides a more effective and de-risked means to access and invest in early-stage drug-development projects and commercialize new health-care products.” Á

A decade ago, Angiotech Pharmaceuticals and QLT were the darlings of the local life-sciences sector. Spawned from research at provincial universities, both companies were commercializing novel products that showed what B.C. could offer. Then, five years ago, the tide began to turn.

Support of affiliated companies comes via entrepreneurship@UBC, a campus-wide initiative led by the faculties of science and applied science, the Sauder School of Business and the UILO that aims to nurture and foster the nascent student entrepreneurship at UBC and help boost ventures emerging from non-funded research.

Participating companies include ticketing and guest-management software developer Goodnights; Tait Laboratories Inc., which develops natural treatments for multiple sclerosis and other diseases of the nervous system; Clinicbook, which makes booking software for health-care professionals; and data-management firm Convergent.io, which recently moved off campus after landing $10 million in series-A financing (it now boasts offices in both Vancouver and California).

Courtesy of B.C.’s venture-capital program, qualified investors receive a 30 per cent tax credit on their investment, which makes for an appealing offer. Philanthropy then kicks in. Shares in entrepreneurship@UBC Ventures are donated to the UBC Foundation in return for a tax receipt that yields a 43.5 per cent credit for those paying the highest marginal tax rate. This allows investors to reap an immediate benefit through tax credits at a cost of just 26 cents on the dollar, while university-affiliated companies enjoy a patient venture-capital partner in the form of the foundation. UILO, as part of its support for entrepreneurship@UBC, also offers companies vouchers for $5,000 worth of support services, including

staff time, mentorship and other services it provides to the companies that the university spins out of funded research. Since September 2011, approximately 25 vouchers have been issued. Companies can also take advantage of incubator space managed by entrepreneurship@UBC. The support has been particularly beneficial to Tait Laboratories Inc., which has two desks at the centre and has also benefitted from the office’s voucher program and mentorship from UILO’s associate director, J.P. Heale. “He’s really helped to guide us, mostly the [intellectual property] side of things,” says Tait Labs president and director and UBC chemistry grad Andrew Tait. Tait Labs expects to launch its first product in fall 2013; Heale helped nav igate the patent a nd bra nding challenges the young company faces. Tait also received the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council Innovation Challenge Award in 2012, and has garnered $200,000 in funding – including an $80,000 award from the council’s Industrial Research Assistance Program. He attributes these successes, in part, to his affiliation with his alma mater. According to Livingston, “The support points a way forward, not just for Tait and other UBC grads, but also for the university as it works to support entrepreneurship across campus. I think it’s going to take the output of the university to a whole new level.” Á

DONALD MCINNES

Kootenay region to the Fraser Valley, Sunshine Coast and Vancouver Island.

Chair, Clean Energy BC | We need to move away from the very politicized debate over who gets to participate in the future of the electricity business in B.C. What are you currently obsessed with at work? Clean-power developers in this province have a huge good-news stor y that has gone la rgely u nreported. In the last five years alone we have expended over $2 billion and we have another $1.5 billion in construction that’s currently underway. We are making real investments to secure B.C.’s electrical future. I am completely confounded as to why we are not more prescient in the planning process when it comes to ensuring B.C.’s clean-energy legacy. We are the first industry to embrace partnering with First Nations and today our members have working relationships with over 125 First Nations located across the province. We a re a lso look i ng at a l l the existing operating plants and examining what, if any, impacts those plants have on the environment and how our members are improving things. The regulatory regime in which we exist is constantly

changing and we want to learn from our past to improve the future. What challenges should B.C. startups be tackling in your sector that they’re not? Our sector has taken the lead compared to all other natural-resource development and has embraced local communities and First Nations as partners in its projects. We are writing the book on what it takes to get a social licence to operate. I am amazed at the issues other natural-resources sectors encounter that stem from not embracing local partnerships. To be successful, natural-resource entrepreneurs need to make their resource-development projects also projects of the community, not just their own. We need to get better at sharing our stories and our successes. The cleanenergy sector is a huge contributor to local economies and communities across British Columbia – from Atlin in the northwest to Tumbler Ridge in the northeast to Kimberly in the

We are the first industry to embrace partnering with First Nations and today our members have working relationships with over 125 First Nations located across the province

What are the smartest entrepreneurs doing in this space? The smartest entrepreneurs are marrying private-sector expertise with the best natural resource-development projects that have a social licence to operate. Developers that have had their project embraced by the local community are winning. I’ve also noted that, as our maturity evolves in this sector, so does our understanding of what it takes to build great partnerships. What’s needed to ensure our province remains competitive? We need to move away from the very politicized debate over who gets to participate in the future of the electricity business in B.C. Going forward we will need the best, brightest and technologically innovative projects to proceed to development and operation to keep B.C. powered. Our province has had very little new and re-investment in our electrical system from 1984 to 2005. Our current low-cost electricity comes from investments that ended in 1984, when nine big hydro storage dams were built over a 30-year period. We need to make massive re-investments in those dams and build new clean-generation facilities to secure a low-cost future and cost advantage for future generations. These investments may appear expensive today but, viewed within the context of 30 to 50 years, they will be seen as good value. Á

for excellence under development at UBC.

HOWARD DONALDSON President, DIGIBC | We need to have a more level playing field in terms of tax credits for digital media

What are you currently obsessed with at work? One of the top issues I’m focused on is raising the stature of digital media and importance in British Columbia. Digital Media is a $400 billion global industry growing at over 11 per cent annually. It’s transforming our world. There are over 1,300 companies in our sector, creating innovative products in wireless and mobile, video gaming, animation and VFX, web 2.0 and social media, interactive marketing and e-learning. Collectively, our sector employs 22,000 people and generates revenues of $3 billion a year. This makes us one of the most significant contributors to our province’s economic well-being. I am obsessed with making B.C. a leader and centre of excellence in digital media and creating new products, research and jobs with economic benefits for B.C. digital media is a hot commodity. We also need to determine how best to keep university graduates in B.C., rather than letting them seek employment elsewhere.

What challenges should B.C. startups be tackling in your sector that they’re not? The challenge in B.C. is to raise the bar. How do we produce more hit products that are in the top charts globally? Many of our companies stay in the small company and never scale enough to reach the medium-to-large company size. Ninety-six per cent of B.C. companies are classified as small companies and the other 4 per cent are medium-sized companies. Some of the hit games we’ve produced are FIFA and Need For Speed. It’s important to note that products are developed here, but generated elsewhere. Did you know Vancouver is considered third in the world for animation and special effects and Canada is considered the third largest videogame producer after Japan and the U.S? It’s estimated that we have a 1 per cent market share globally. We’re working to change that with Wavefront’s wireless centre of excellence and a new digital media centre

I am obsessed with making B.C. a leader and centre of excellence in digital media and creating new products, research and jobs with economic benefits for B.C.

What are the smartest entrepreneurs doing in this space? The smartest entrepreneurs are focused on delivering a product that meets a real market demand at an acceptable cost before expanding. This often means there are many iterations and pivots until a successful product is achieved with a profitable business model. This attracts funding for expansion. Local companies that we need to keep an eye on are HootSuite, A Thinking Ape and Vision Critical. They’ve all grown exponentially and exceeded expectations, even when other companies have failed. What’s needed to ensure our province remains competitive? We need to create more opportunities in B.C, period. We need to have a more level playing field in terms of tax credits for digital media. These tax credits will attract major digital media companies to set up their operations here, which will, in turn, attract additional marketing, sales and management talent and more funding sources to the province. Tax credits are critical; there are six provinces with tax credits and we are the lowest, so we are losing our talent to other areas in Canada. We need to bring those people back home. We are losing people to Washington state and California because they have larger companies and offer better job opportunities. We also need to continue partnering with universities for more centres of excellence. UBC has partnered with industry and now, hopefully, there’ll be more opportunities. Tax credit programs are at provincial, state and country levels. Local governments do not offer tax incentives. We can’t emulate other jurisdictions; they are each unique and fit for their country. We need to find something here. Á

Are you prepared for Canada’s new anti-spam law?

T

he Canadian federal government’s antispam legislation is now law, although it has not yet taken effect. A senior official at Industry Canada has suggested that the law might not come into effect until at least 2014; however, many businesses are already starting to prepare for compliance. The law is very broad and the penalties for non-compliance are very steep. Virtually every person and business in Canada (any many outside of Canada) will be affected by the law and will need to rethink how they send emails, voicemails and other telecommunications. The law affects American and other businesses too, because it applies to any electronic message that is sent, routed or retrieved using a computer system in Canada. The law is broader and more onerous than American anti-spam legislation, so compliance with the US CAN-SPAM Act will not be enough. For example, the Canadian legislation prohibits any person from sending (or causing or permitting to be sent) a commercial electronic message unless the recipient expressly or implicitly consents to receiving the message. That’s going to be a tough rule to follow, especially since very few people actually respond to requests for consent, particularly requests sent by email. Some other key points are as follows: Not just e-mail: The definition of “commercial electronic message” is very broad and includes any message sent by telecommunications (including e-mail, text messages, voicemail, social media communications, etc.) if the

purpose of that message is to encourage participation in a commercial activity. Not just spam: The law also prohibits hacking, malware, online fraud, electronic harvesting and privacy invasions. Consent: Commercial electronic messages cannot be sent without the recipients’ consent. Consent can be express or implied, and there are specific rules for how to obtain consent. There are also some limited exceptions to the consent requirement. Identification: All commercial electronic messages must identify the person who sent the message (and if different, the person on whose behalf it was sent); provide accurate contact information for these parties; and send out a mechanism by which the recipient may unsubscribe. The law also requires other disclosures, and contains specific rules regarding how the disclosures can be presented. Unsubscribing: The recipient must be able to unsubscribe using the same means by which the message was sent. There are specific rules and time limits for complying with unsubscribe requests. Penalties: The maximum penalty for a violation of the legislation is $1,000,000 for an individual and $10,000,000 for a corporation or other business entity. These fines are imposed per violation, and a violation is defined as being separate for each day that it continues.

Chris Bennett

Vicarious liability: Violations under the Act create both direct and vicarious liability, and directors or officers of corporations may be personally liable for the corporation’s violations. Employers are also liable for violations committed by their employees acting within the scope of their employment. The law is complicated and lengthy. There have already been two sets of regulations and interpretation bulletins published, and more may follow. Compliance will therefore be difficult, and will not be made any easier by the fact that consent is even required to send an email requesting consent to send further emails. It is therefore advisable to start preparing for compliance now.

B.C. TECH: THE 20-YEAR OVERNIGHT SUCCESS Bill Tam says B.C.’s tech industry has become one of the most resilient and innovative sectors in our province | BCTIA

BILL TAM, PRESIDENT AND CEO, BCTIA

T

he technology industry in British Columbia is an overnight success; it took 20 years, but it has become one of the most resilient and innovative sectors in our province. B.C. possesses a keen entrepreneurial spirit and a reputation for technical ingenuity, from geological simulators for mine exploration to advanced robotics for timber production to social media town halls for community outreach. Technology has transformed how we improve our business competitiveness, connect our communities and communicate. Since 1993 the tech industry in B.C. has grown five-fold, from $4 billion in revenue to over $20 billion today. It is a cornerstone of the provincial economy and the third-largest contributor to our GDP. There’s ample evidence that what’s happening in B.C. isn’t a flash in the pan; it’s based on the technology sector’s proven track record of reinvention and ability to weather the economic ups and downs. Technology now represents a $9 trillion global market opportunity – a sizeable prize, in which B.C. accounts for less than one-quarter of a per cent. We can seize this vast market opportunity, but it demands a fundamental shift in how we think and act. We will need to increase access to venture capital and skilled talent, create meaningful partnerships with academic institutions and our governments. We need policies, actions and strong

partnerships that will result in the hyper-growth of small tech companies into global leaders. It will take the engagement and efforts of every British Columbian to choose, adopt and promote B.C. technology first. Imagine the growth our industry could have if every citizen, business and government adopted a home-team advantage attitude. The World Bank consistently ranks Canada as one of the most favourable environments to start a business. Vancouver was recently rated among the top 10 startup ecosystems in the world. More British Columbians work in startup companies than anywhere else in Canada. Our supportive ecosystem has resulted in a flourishing number of tech companies – almost 9,000 today. These tech firms have created thousands of stable, well-paying jobs and have pumped new life into B.C.’s innovation ecosystem. The challenge is to accelerate growth of these startups to become mid- and large-sized businesses. Mid-sized companies possess the level of resources and wealth necessary to expand export activities, attract skilled talent and investment and grow our provincial economy. You ng, fast-g row i ng companies are known as “Gazelles.” The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development defines these as small businesses that are less than five years old and have experienced over 20 per cent growth in each of the past three years. Over the past two decades our

What’s happening in B.C. isn’t a flash in the pan; it’s based on province has produced its share of Gazelles, such as MDA, Westport, Electronic Arts and Crystal Decisions. More recently, companies like Avigilon, HootSuite, Global Relay and QuickMobile are well on their way to becoming B.C.’s next billion-dollar enterprises. These Gazelles are attracting the attention of the world, bringing investment and skilled talent to our province. If we are to seize our share of the growing $9 trillion global market opportunity, we must accelerate the growth of many more Gazelles. This means focusing our efforts and attention on the acceleration of our companies by bridging entrepreneurship, money, talent and know-how. It means channelling our competitive spirit to seek out and conquer new global markets. And it means directing the resources available to activities that will achieve our ultimate goal: recognition of British Columbia as a global technology powerhouse. Á

IF I HAD A BILLION DOLLARS For some high-tech companies, $1 billion is a mileage sign. For others, it’s an exit sign NELSON BENNETT

ne billion dollars. It’s a nice, round figure. For M a c D on a ld Dettwiler and Associates Ltd. (MDA), one of B.C.’s largest and most successful high-tech companies, a $1 billion valuation was a mileage marker on the road to growth, not an exit sign. The Richmond-based aerospace and satellite communications firm has a market cap of $2.5 billion following the acquisition last year of California satellite-maker Space Systems/Loral Inc. for $875 million. “The key to MDA’s growth has been setting a target to get to $100 million, then to $1 billion, then to $2 billion and now to $5 billion,” says president and CEO Daniel Friedmann. For the founder of the spectacularly successful social media dashboard developer HootSuite, the $1 billion mark is part of an exit strategy. CEO Ryan Holmes plans to build a

billion-dollar business and then use profits from its sale to create venturecapital firms. That’s one often-overlooked benefit of selling a billion-dollar company: it leaves large amounts of cash in the hands of successful entrepreneurs, who often use it to seed the next generation of high-tech firms through angel investments. Since selling Creo to Eastman Kodak in 2004, Creo co-founder Ken Spencer has invested in 10 startups. He has some advice for angel investors. “Make sure the company has a culture that is adaptive to change because you can’t go from a startup to $1 billion without a lot of change,” he says. Asked how close HootSuite is to the $1 billion target, Holmes says, “We’re closer now than ever. However, at this point, we’re not releasing financials publicly.” HootSuite’s head count gives some idea of the firm’s growth. Two years ago it was 25; today it’s 300, including 30 employees based in Europe. Besides

adding 10 new hires per week, HootSuite just relocated to a larger office in Mount Pleasant and last year acquired a competitor, Seesmic. When it comes to growth, however, few B.C. high-tech companies can match Westport Innovations Inc. Westport’s head count has doubled each year for the past four years and now sits at 1,100. That growth has been fuelled, in part, by high gas and diesel prices creating increased demand for Westport technologies. Westport has used a highly effective strategy of leveraging expertise and capital through joint-venture partnerships w ith large engine manufacturers in key markets such as Cummins in the U.S. and Weichai Power in China. Like Ballard Power Systems, Westport went public in the 1990s and rode a swell of enthusiasm for alternative fuel sources. Westport co-founder and CEO David Demers says Ballard’s mistake was focusing solely on hydrogen fuel cells and not addressing biggerpicture problems like fuelling infrastructure, the lack of which is a major

barrier to any business involved in the automotive space. One of Westport’s first partnerships was with the forerunner of FortisBC to develop a natural-gas fuelling system. “You find a big problem and you solve it,� Demers says. “But you’ve got to solve the whole problem. People think that if you invent a new technology, people will just come flocking. You have to sort out the whole system.� Rapid growth doesn’t necessarily translate into profit and, in an age of growing shareholder activism, that can have drastic consequences. Avigilon Corp. is one of the fastestgrowing high-tech companies in North America. It strikes the balance between growth, reinvestment

in R&D and maintaining value for shareholders. President and CEO A lexander Fernandes says one of the problems high-tech firms often face is trying to buy their way into markets instead of simply focusing on making the best technology. “Companies are growing fast, but they’re not profitable because they’re providing so many inducements for customers to buy that they’re essentially buying the sale,� he says. Avigilon, which makes high-definition surveillance cameras, was one of the few technology companies in Canada to go public in 2011 and has been shooting to high-tech stardom ever since. It ended 2012 with $100 million in revenue and is expected to reach $500 million by 2016.

The company does not outsource either its manufacturing or its 24-hour multilingual customer support. Both are done locally. “It’s not just about selling the product,� says Fernandes. “It’s also taking care of the customer after they buy the product. It seems obvious and a lot of people talk about it. They say they do it, but they don’t.� Burnaby-based Alpha Technologies Ltd. is also distinguishing its technology in a crowded and competitive space. It specializes in power systems for the broadband cable and telecom sectors. Despite being up against the likes of General Electric, it supplies 90 per cent of the power system to North American broadband providers and is the third-largest supplier for the

telecom industry. Alpha had 116 employees and $38 million in revenue in 2008. That grew to 394 employees and revenue of $195 million in 2012 as a result of a merger with Argus Technologies Ltd. While Alpha made power products for cable, Argus made similar systems for telecoms, so a merger made a lot of sense. “We realized we were two small rinky-dink manufacturing outfits competing in the global marketplace, both of us going to the same customers,” says Alpha president and CEO Mark Schnarr, a former Telus Ventures president. “It made more sense for us to merge [and] wring out a whole bunch of cost synergies and a number of revenue

CE O Wa r ren Roy a nd h i s cofou nders developed electron ic data-management software for the architecture, engineering and construction industries.

(Ninety per cent of the company’s shareholders are employees.) “We had a very hard time raising money because nobody believed in our vision of the need for archiving in the business market,” Roy says. “The benefit to it is that, today, we’re not controlled by a venture capitalist or private-equity money. Because we were never able to raise money, we didn’t lose control of the business.” Roy says he’d have no problem finding investors now but doesn’t need them – and has no interest in selling the company. “We don’t want to sell it,” he states. “We want to build a very successful business in Vancouver.” Á

even years ago, Greg Malpass started Traction on Demand in a home office. But the firm, which manages online marketing for clients, began to grow rapidly when it landed a contract with Yellow Pages Group subsidiary Canpages.ca. Malpass brought on an initial employee in 2010; he now employs 52 people in offices in Gastown and Port Moody and hopes to grow to 80 workers by the end of 2013. To keep pace with growth, Malpass started advertising online for staff. He cast a broad net, posting listings and

invitations on social media sites like Craigslist and Facebook in order to reach people cheaply and effectively. The premise: it was easier to train smart and engaged employees to match the company’s needs than to find candidates with the relevant skills. Traction on Demand used software to track each of its job postings as well as responses it received and the engagement each applicant showed from initial click to final hiring decision. This allowed the company to score candidates with a significant degree of accuracy for positions paying $70,000 to $80,000 a year. “We know how much energy they’ve

A functional sales rep, you want the worker; whereas a developer, you want them to be quite lazy.” The process seems to have worked. Not only has Traction on Demand managed to understand what attracts potential employees generally, its honed its sense of which candidates – ranging from beauticians to helicopter mechanics – are most likely to fit its requirements. “We’ve had no unplanned attrition; nobody has left Traction that didn’t have to leave,” says Malpass. “The culture in the company is just incredible.” Traction on Demand’s success highlights the opportunities for British Columbia technology companies that are competing for talent in a global marketplace. According to a report issued in 2012

by the BC Technology Industry Association (BCTIA), B.C.’s tech sector employs more than 80,000 people and is the second-fastest creator of new jobs in the private sector. But despite all of the province’s attractions – spectacular scenery, myriad recreational opportunities and competitive personal tax rates – hiring and retaining workers presents challenges. These include the high cost of living in B.C. and the inability to find people locally who have the specific skills that employers need. The BCTIA report recommended, among other steps, that the tech sector strive for a better understanding of the factors motivating potential employees and B.C.’s favour as a destination for workers, develop effective retention strategies and brand themselves as desirable workplaces. Vancouver’s Global Relay, for example, stepped in to sponsor an annual cycling competition. The race is now known as the Global Relay Gastown Grand Prix, a move the company says was designed not only to revive a beloved sporting event but also raise the company’s profile as it sought to grow its workforce from 200 to 300 people. Other companies have turned to social media sites like GlassDoor.com to develop and defend their reputation among potential employees. GlassDoor allows employees to review companies. But Michelle Painchaud, principalofWinnipegHRfirmPainchaud Performance Group, advises employers to actively cultivate a positive reputation for themselves on the website and monitor it for feedback that may give them tips on how to better meet employees’ expectations. “A lot of it now is about our reputation,” Painchaud says. “Be very conscious that what you think may not be reality.” Malpass, for his part, is confident that his company’s hiring process will continue to attract – and retain – great staff. But don’t take that to mean he’s resting easy. Traction on Demand has a number of perks that aim to keep the workplace fun and flexible, including an Airstream camper that’s been converted into a mobile development centre and karaoke bar – a real hit with staff. Á

This remodeled 1974 Airstream camper is Traction on Demand’s mobile office. It’s just one of the ways the company keeps the workplace fun and flexible | TRACTION ON DEMAND

NANOTECH SECURITY CORP.

From Butterfly Wings to Anti-Counterfeit Nanotech Security Corp. has embarked on a new venture to bring world-class nanotechnology to the authentication and anti-counterfeiting markets. The security feature, known as KolourOptiks®, is created using patented algorithms coupled with electron and ion beam technology to embed hundreds of millions of nano-holes into nearly any material. The technology replicates the shimmering effect of one of the world’s largest butterflies, the Blue Morpho, whose top wings appear as a vivid iridescent blue. The effect is created naturally through the reflection, refraction and absorption of light off a grid of nano-structures that make up the surface of the wings. After licensing related technologies from Simon Fraser University, Nanotech Security Corp. took the concept behind this “butterfly effect,” worked to understand it, and

Nanotech Security’s initial target market for KolourOptiks® is businesses and governments that produce and distribute paper currency. then simplified the geometries responsible for the effect so that it could be integrated into commercial manufacturing processes. The result is that KolourOptiks® is the first roll-to-roll-produced nano-scale technology in the security industry to encompass the four-level conventional security pyramid, including overt and forensic features, all in one technical application.

FINALIST

People-Friendly Tolling The Transportation Investment Corp (TI Corp) knew that it needed to introduce tolling on the new Port Mann bridge in a very friendly and customer-centric manner, given that this large-scale public project would directly affect the lives of thousands of British Columbians. TI Corp’s objectives were 250,000 driver registrations within the first 75 days, 60% through the online channel. To deliver its high-volume, friendly website, TI Corp selected OpenRoad Communications, a 30-person professional services and software product firm. OpenRoad brought a breadth of capabilities to the project including digital strategy, usability design, analytics and software development.

The result was that by its target date, TI Corp had more than doubled its registration goal, with more than 80% registering online. This has resulted in significant call-centre cost savings while also providing a great customer experience. Together, TI Corp and OpenRoad have proven that investing in user experience (UX) can result in savings that far exceed the costs.

LAND TITLE AND SURVEY AUTHORITY OF BC

2013 TECHNOLOGY IMPACT AWARDS

Business Modernization Team Spun off from the Province of BC in 2005, the Land Title and Survey Authority of BC (LTSA) inherited a mission that is critical to the province’s economy, but to deliver on that mandate, LTSA was provided with unstable COBOL-based core operational systems and an aging workforce with poor computer skills. Facing significant technology and operational risk, LTSA launched an aggressive make-or-break transformational project known as the Business Modernization Initiative. To deliver its project, LTSA formed the Business

Modernization Team that included 56 employees distributed across four offices. The result was that by the end of 2012, the LTSA had completed its transformation. It replaced its legacy systems with modern reliable technology including ASTRA, its new Land Title Register with automated title examination functionality, new and enhanced electronic search and filing services, a knowledge base and more. These major changes were undertaken without interrupting the operations of the core business, a feat likened by the team “to performing heart surgery on a

patient while the patient ran a marathon.” ASTRA has changed how employees perform their work, but not what they do. About 45% of employees were involved in designing and testing the new system. As a result of the team’s well-planned change management program, LTSA employees have embraced automation.

Building a Global Business with Thousands of Followers A life-long entrepreneur and a 20-year veteran of the IT sector, Warren Roy is the CEO & Founder of Global Relay. Founded in 1999, Global Relay is Vancouver-based company and recognized as a global leader in cloud based message archiving and compliance solutions for the financial services sector. Built as a bootstrapped company, with initial funding from friends and family, Global Relay grew within its own cash flow, leveraging sweat equity to remain a privately-held and employee-controlled local company with no venture capital funding. Over the past fourteen years, Warren has transformed the business

from a start-up into a 250 employee firm, servicing 16,000 financial companies in 90 countries, including 22 of the top 25 banks. While Global Relay is regularly approached to be acquired, Warren remains focused on building a Canadian company that can compete internationally. His desire is to bring as many high value jobs as possible to Vancouver while cementing Global Relay as the leader in its field; Warren’s business objectives include redefining the way the financial sector communicates by delivering powerful cloud-based messaging services and the strongest technology from the best and

brightest minds in the province of British Columbia. A larger than life personality, Warren is recognized by his colleagues and employees as a charismatic, passionate leader with tenacious vision; a style which is cited as one of the main reasons his company attracts and retains its strong international team.

Living Its Corporate Values

Racing for Success A quiet success, Global Relay has added more than 200 employees since 2007, making it one of the largest employers in Vancouver’s Gastown District. With almost 100% of its sales and marketing outside of BC, Global Relay needed to increase its local exposure to attract the top talent required to sustain its growth. At the same time, the company wanted to give back to its community and to do so in a fashion that encouraged employee engagement and teamwork. Global Relay delighted the entire Canadian cycling community by committing $1,000,000 over five years to revive the Gastown Grand Prix, and a further $400,000 to

help young Canadians qualify for the Olympics. In addition, Global Relay employees volunteered their personal time to handle almost every aspect of the race from concept to execution. Bootstrapped on cash flow and sweat equity, Global Relay has transformed into a p ower h o u s e, d e liver i n g critical business and compliance services to the global financial industry.
