Lungpacer named a “2013 Emerging Rocket Life Science Company”.

Ready to Rocket is a unique business recognition list that profiles British Columbia technology companies with the greatest potential for revenue growth. Each year, based on analysis of trends that will drive growth in the information technology sector, Rocket Builders identifies the top private companies that are best positioned to capitalize on the trends for growth. This selection methodology has been an accurate predictor of growth and investment milestones.

“Emerging Rockets” is a recognition program for British Columbia technology companies that are not yet in a high revenue growth stage but have great potential for investment and market breakthroughs in the coming year. An “Emerging Rocket” company is a company with great potential for market milestones but may be a few years away from maximum revenue growth. Previously called the “Ones to Watch” list, these companies have commercialized a product and are undergoing early stages of market adoption. Occasionally, this early market entry is so impressive that these early stage companies are acquired (FlickR is an example of a B.C. company recognized by this list in past and acquired shortly afterward). Frequently, “Emerging Rockets” become “Ready to Rocket” within one to two years.

Lungpacer a BCTIA Most Promising Pre-Commercial Technology 2012 finalist

VANCOUVER, BC, May 2, 2012 – Today the BC Technology Industry Association (BCTIA) announced the finalists for the 2012 Technology Impact Awards (TIAs). Under the awards theme of ‘BC’s Mark on the World’, the 2012 finalists reaffirm British Columbia’s status as innovators in a cross-section of technologies including enterprise software, consumer electronics and medical devices.

The breadth of technologies being developed, and the markets that they serve, illustrate the strength and diversity of the BC Technology Industry. Solutions include a variety of hardware and software technologies, and in many cases include a blend of both.

“Many of the companies profiled in the 2012 TIAs are already making their mark, selling to and partnering with some of the largest and most well-known global players,” stated BCTIA President Bill Tam. “Collectively, the 2012 finalists are serving virtually every market around the world,” Tam added. “They represent millions of dollars of investment into British Columbia’s economy and collectively generate tens of millions of dollars in annual export revenues.”

Each year, the Technology Impact Awards are broken into three groups: Technology Awards, Company Awards, and Personal Recognition Awards. This year’s finalists are:

Excellence in Product Innovation

Community Engagement

Most Promising Pre-Commercial Technology

Most Promising Start-Up

Emerging Company of the Year

Company of the Year

Other awards to be presented at the Technology Impact Awards Dinner include:

Adoption of Technology: Acknowledges a BC-based company or organization that has adopted BCbased technology and as a result has realized significant improvements in productivity, competitiveness or profitability.

Team of the Year: Acknowledges a team of individuals, working at a non-executive level, who have made a significant contribution to the overall success of their organization during the past year.

Person of the Year: Awarded to an individual who has made a significant contribution to the BC technology industry during the year. This contribution may be through paid or volunteer activities.
