Kamloops Accelerated
Thu, 09/29/2011
Event Location: 

Join us Thursday September 29th, for Kamloops Accelerated hosted for free by BC Lottery Corporation.

Jaethan Reichel is the Business Development Director for a consortium of Telecommunication and Utility companies here in Kamloops. He often tells people that he works as a janitor to avoid public speaking, but this is not always a successful ploy. Jaethan worked in the Oil and Gas sector, where he was burned repeatedly (He wishes this was a metaphor).

He was a founding member of the National CIO Remote Communications Council,
and sits on the Board of the Canadian Cloud Computing Best Practices council.

He helped create the Kamloops Innovation Centre (KIC) in 2010 with help from the Interior Science and Innovation Council (ISIC). Fortunate to marry above his genetic potential, Jaethan collects old books, interesting friends, and sharp knives.

His presentation, "Kamloops Accelerated", will talk about KIC, Japanese Swordsmiths, and our city’s future as an innovation destination. There will be at least one musical interlude.

You will want to attend this talk if you
  • are curious about technology innovation and entrepreneurship in Kamloops
  • have a killer idea and want to create a new tech startup
  • want to work in, with, or around great Kamloops startups
  • want to meet a real life entrepreneur
