The 10th Annual State of the Island Economic Summit is over, and SkookumScript creator and Agog Labs CEO Conan Reis was there to tell Vancouver Island’s movers and shakers about the wonders of SkookumScript.
Conan participated in two official Summit events. First, he presented on SkookumScript and took audience questions as part of the Tech Showcase, where Vancouver Island’s rising tech innovators pitched their wares to an appreciative audience of venture capitalists, business leaders and politicians. Then he joined three other local tech entrepreneurs on the Faces of Tech panel, where he discussed our experiences as a startup in Vancouver Island’s rapidly growing tech sector.
Both presentations were very well-received, and resulted in top-notch, hors d’oeuvre-fuelled entrepreneurial schmoozing that Conan won’t soon forget.
Other highlights of the Summit included a keynote speech from B.C. Premier Christy Clark and the official release of the first-ever State of the Island Economic Report—but although both of these were splendid and very worthwhile, neither were quite as skookum as SkookumScript. At this point, we think it’s fair to say that we have skookumness pretty much locked up.
Presented by the Vancouver Island Economic Alliance (VIEA), the State of the Island Economic Summit is an annual gathering of business, community and government leaders. The mad scientists of Agog Labs thank VIEA and Innovation Island for inviting Conan to participate in this goodly event! The good word about SkookumScript continues to spread….
