Success Factors in BC's Wireless Industry
Noulan was commissioned in March of 2004 by the National Research Council of Canada (NRC), under its IRAP (Industry Research Assistance Program), and the BC Advanced Systems Institute to investigate and report on how successful entrepreneurs have built viable companies in British Columbia's Wireless Sector. The Report was released for publication in August of 2004.
Unlike many High-Tech Industry Reports, this one provides useful information and practical advice for entrepreneurs and executives on how they can better lead their ventures to commercial success. BC Management Consultant Noulan Bowker interviewed 17 successful founders and CEOs in BC's Wireless industry to learn about their strategies and how they exploited opportunities and overcame obstacles. He also obtained their suggestions for how government and other organizations might more effectively support the industry. Although focused on Wireless, much of the report applies equally well to ventures in other high-tech sectors.
