Innovation Island offers a complimentary business advisory service to entrepreneurs in knowledge-based industries on the Sunshine Coast and beyond. Sunshine Coast Business Magazine caught up with Innovation Island's Executive in Residence and Business Advisor, Graham Truax, during one of his many routine visits to the Coast.
Sunshine Coast Business Magazine: I think a lot of people have heard of Innovation Island, but they don't necessarily know exactly what it is.
Graham Truax: We are a non-profit industry association. We're not a company, we're not here to sell anything. We have two primary mandates, one with the province through BC Innovation Council (BCIC), and the other through the feds - through the National Research Council Industrial Research Assistance Program (IRAP). I wear two hats.
