INNOVATE Vancouver - Canada


Named for a renowned explorer, the city has retained its pioneering spirit in any number of industries, in any number of ways. Anyone familiar with the terms “athleisure,” “locavore,” or “cyberpunk” has Vancouver to thank, as does anyone who loves a good blockbuster, since Vancouver is also known as “Hollywood North.”

The city’s natural beauty, deep and diverse history, and high quality of life have drawn global attention to Vancouver—but INNOVATE® Vancouver offers a look at the city under a microscope of innovation, telling the stories of the companies and people who have shaped Vancouver into the bold ecosystem it is today.

A 300+ page premium coffee-table book and online experience, INNOVATE® Vancouver will feature original think pieces by community leaders and industry-based chapters that highlight organizations from nonprofits to enterprises. The common link? Innovation in all of its forms: creativity, future-centricity, boldness, risk-taking–we could go on, or you can see for yourself in INNOVATE® Vancouver’s pages.

Because we believe innovation can happen anywhere and with anyone, we’ve created  INNOVATE® Vancouver, like all books in the  INNOVATE® series, to be “anti-advertisement”; participation is by invitation only, and a flat, nominal production fee gets every company a double-page spread, an AR video canvas (so you can watch one of their videos in the book itself, like Harry Potter’s newspaper!), and a forever-home on the Innovations of the World website.
