Over the past couple of decades successful companies and entrepreneurs have grown out of opportunities in the local metals, materials and Teck supply chain. One of the most well-known is Firebird Technologies who picked up on a niche opportunity and grew it from an incubation center in East Trail, to being purchased by 5N.

Evolving technologies, business innovation and expanding markets are once again creating fertile ground for Kootenay based entrepreneurs, in this area. Opportunity is knocking. Let us help you discover how others have done it, what opportunities are available and how we can accelerate the growth of your venture.

You are invited to a one day workshop to learn about emerging opportunities in metals, materials and the downstream/upstream supply chain that are centered on Teck’s Trail operations.

There is a new economic environment emerging in Greater Trail, B.C., where “high tech, green tech,” is the new industrial story! We invite you to be part of it.
