VICTORIA – B.C. businesses will get their products to market more quickly, thanks to an innovative pilot program that will place graduate students from B.C.’s post secondary research institutions with established companies for job experience.
“It’s important that we support development and commercialization of products using innovative means such as the voucher program,” said John Yap, Minister of Advanced Education, Innovation and Technology. “B.C.’s ability to compete successfully in the global economy depends on a highly skilled and educated labour force. And you never know – the voucher program could nurture the knowledge and technology that produces the next Mark Zuckerberg or Bill Gates, or creates the next Facebook or Microsoft.”
