Technology Education Program
Discovery Foundation launched the Technology Education Program (TEP) in 2010 to educate BC innovators on how to move their ideas from conception to commercialization. Business development, sales, marketing, finance and operational skills are all required to support growth. TEP offers educational programs to BC entrepreneurs to upgrade their business skills with the goal to grow world-scale, BC-based technology companies.
This year the Discovery Foundation has set aside funds for programs and events that are of smaller scope, shorter duration, or are one-off events. These will be considered outside of the Technology Education Program competition with no fixed date for application.
Discovery Foundation provides two scholarships for students enrolled in technology programs at a recognized B.C. educational institution. Students must be in their penultimate year and the proceeds will go toward their final year tuition.
Discovery Foundation grants research awards in the area of greentech/cleantech and also for research aimed at identifying gaps in diversity in the B.C. technology sector and providing recommendations for improvement.
