T-Net 1000 High Tech Directory

T-Net Supplier Directory

The T-Net 100 is a list on the T-Net Website, ranking the top BC-based High Tech companies in BC on a revenue basis. As the list is compiled from data from the year ending December 31, 2000, it is now quite out of date. The list provides a brief description of each company and a Web link. Note that the company ranking 100th had only $4.3million in annual revenues.

The T-Net 1000 High Tech Directory is a "comprehensive" directory of BC's top 1000 technology companies. Each entry includes Company Name, Address, Phone, Fax, Contact Person, Title, Email, Website, Sector and a 50 Word Company Profile. It is available for purchase from T-Net.

The T-Net Supplier Directory, on the T-Net Website is a directory of a number of suppliers of products and services to the BC technology industry.

Business in Vancouver (BIV) Databases   BIV maintains a database of 60,000 entries for businesses of all types in BC. It sells portions of this on a sector basis. Of relevence to high tech firms are:
  • The Tech Database: 3,000 plus firms engaged in manufacturing, production, research, and information technology.
  • The Manufacturers' Database: from high tech to low tech; more than 3450 firms.
BIV uses the standard NAIC ( successor to SIC) codes for classifcation. A good basic list, but many companies are missing and some of the classifications are nonsensical.

Also available is the "Book of Lists", giving the top 100 companies in many sectors - the info in this is more accurate info than the larger data base. Also available is the "High Tech Directory", which has spotty coverage.
