15 Jan 2019 by DigiBC

Are you a technology startup company in need of professional office space?  The Generator awards free furnished office space on a competitive basis for 12 months to startups deemed most-likely to succeed and grow. An initiative developed between Discovery Parks and the City of Vancouver in 2011, The Generator enables startup companies to focus solely on their businesses which, in turn, results in increased job growth, investment, and revenue. With access to mentors and programming provided by Discovery Parks, BC TECH and LifeSciences BC, the companies also have support available to thrive and grow.

Ideally suited for teams of 1-10 people in size, each company is awarded one private office plus the appropriate number of workstations. The Generator also has a formal boardroom, meeting rooms and a communal kitchen. Telus internet is included along with coffee. 
Located in the heart of Chinatown, The Generator is close to the technology hubs of Gastown and Railtown and the financial districts of Downtown and Yaletown. With its unique neighbourhood character and plentiful coffee shops and eateries, Chinatown offers Generator companies many nearby amenities for their employees. It is a location where startups want to work.

2019-20 will be the ninth cohort of the Generator selected by a panel of judges from Discovery Parks, BC TECH, LifeSciences BC and the Vancouver Economic Commission. The Generator is based on the concept that free-flowing ideas, minimal barriers and a belief in serendipity accelerate the growth and success of technology companies. The winners move-in date is slated for June 2019.
