It's been a quick 16 weeks for our Technovation teams, as the girls showcased their finalized apps, business plans, and marketing schemes this past weekend at Simon Fraser University. It is with a heavy heart that we come to the conclusion of the Technovation challenge, with our mentors showing doleful signs of loss for their weekly check-in meetings. Though the development phase is now complete, we look forward to the official competition results released at the end of May.
Calling all co-operative education university students (co-ops)! If you're looking for an innovating, challenging, and value-added work experience, look no further! Appnovation is a strong supporter of co-operative education, providing co-op opportunities to post-secondary students in Vancouver since 2013. In fact, we've provided professional work experience opportunities to nearly 70 students since!
If I had a dollar for every time I was asked the following question…well, I’d have enough to buy a nice dinner, but not quite enough for a nice car:
“How does Appnovation Technologies continually employ talented individuals from often diluted pool of candidates, in a way that supports, sustains and enables the growth of the company?”
To put this into context, we’re talking about 654% growth over the past five years – not small potatoes.
In the marketing world, content is still king. The internet is an endless ocean of content that is easily accessible at any time, on any device. This means that marketers are focusing their efforts on a multi-platform approach to delivering content to their audience. Through numerous and dispersed entry points, the customer has a coordinated and comprehensive experience of the brand story.
The Technovation program has been buzzing in Vancouver for roughly 4 months. During this time participants have met their mentors, built the skeleton and adjoining features of their community-changing apps, and compiled comprehensive business and marketing plans. Needless to say, it’s been an agile and awe-inspiring process.
