BC’s Wavefront opens in Downtown Vancouver

Earlier today BC Minister of Small Business, Technology and Economic Development Iain Black was on hand to officially open Wavefront – the community-based commercialization centre for BC’s 1,000 wireless and new media development companies.

During the opening day festivities, a number of new international partnerships were announced including one with the Mobile Computing Promotion Consortium (MCPC) in Japan and a flagship project with the Hong Kong Wireless Development Center (HKWDC). Both initiatives will help promote BC’s wireless companies in the respective regions.

Attendees were toured thought Wavefront’s 7,000-square-foot, high-tech wireless facility at 1055 West Hastings and got to meet the tenant companies and partners.

In his remarks to attendees, Wavefront President James Maynard explained, “Wavefront is accelerating the growth of B.C.s 1,000 wireless and new media companies and is helping them get their products into the marketplace. Through partnerships with organizations like the MCPC and the HKWDC, Wavefront is changing the game for mobile developers and the wireless industry.”
