Description

What's up for Creative Third Thursday in August?
Colin Schmidt of Wisebox Solutions will be hosting Creative Third Thursday at the Downtown Business Centre on Young Road near five corners. You won’t want to miss it.

The August Creative Third Thursday this year is going to be a melding of the creative minds from the Chilliwack.Tech community and the rest of Chilliwack's creative economy. These two monthly meetups have been a day apart most months for over a year, but this month we are going to get together to highlight the local tech industry and hear how one Chilliwack software company journeyed from a hobby, to a growth company, to being acquired by a Fraser Valley hi-tech group. Be prepared for some insights, pitfalls, humour, and a glimpse of the future along the way. Although this story is about a hi-tech company, the lessons learned are certainly applicable to all involved in the creative economy.

Be sure to invite others who may be interested in learning more about this industry in the valley, or looking to network with like-minded creative professionals.
