Nominations open for the seventh annual MISTIC awards

The Mid-Island Science Technology and Innovation Council wants to hear about creative thinkers and problem solvers and the work they do.

Nominations are open for the seventh annual MISTIC Innovation Awards, which recognize the achievements of technology-based businesses and individuals across Vancouver Island (north of the Malahat), the Sunshine Coast and Gulf Islands.

“The region is a natural hub for innovation and a great place to start and grow a technology business,” said Paris Gaudet, MISTIC executive director. “The region’s science and technology sector continues to grow, innovate and change the economic landscape.  It is up to all of us to ensure that everyone knows about the diverse opportunities available to our youth and the significant impact our sector has on the regional economy.  The awards are about recognizing the amazing and innovative work happening in our communities.”

This year’s awards acknowledge Island innovators in seven award categories including: promising pre-commercial innovation, innovative start-up of the year, emerging product,                                          technology leadership, environmental excellence, young innovator and excellence in innovation.
