The BC Technology Industry Association has announced the five companies selected to join its HyperGrowth program.

HyperGrowth is BC’s only second-stage accelerator, focused on building the next generation of anchor tech companies through advanced sales, marketing, and business process-related programming.

Building on the success of 2015’s inaugural cohort, the BCTIA has increased the number of companies for cohort two from three to five. The cohort is comprised of:

Picatic is an online ticketing and registration platform empowering event planners and event goers by completely eliminating service and convenience fees. Picatic powers Techfest events.

Arkit is a web app that makes it easy for teams to work together on map-based projects, by combining intuitive mapping features with collaborative project management tools.

ThinkCX is a predictive analytics company that uses social intelligence to help companies optimize the lifetime value of their subscription based or recurring-billing customers.

TalentClick provides a risk-based personality testing platform to hire and train better employees and create happier, safer, and more productive workplaces.

Wiivv is a bionics company that creates custom, 3D printed gear using body-perfect capture technology, accessible by everyone from a smartphone.

“When we launched HyperGrowth last year, we knew there was a need for second-stage programming, but we had no way of predicting the incredible successes companies would see from the program,” said Bill Tam, BCTIA President and CEO.

“We could not be more excited to have been selected for the HyperGrowth program,” said TalentClick CEO and Co-Founder, Greg Ford.

“Despite being experienced entrepreneurs, there is always a need to have more outside experience, coaching, and Rolodex’s at the table,” said Aaron Nielsen, CEO of ThinkCX.
