What does it take to be an entrepreneur? How do ordinary people start from nothing to create extraordinary companies? What advice would they share about their journey and lessons learned?

Those questions and more will be answered on November 25th during six:forty.

As the only tech event of its kind, six:forty is not about company pitches or product demos, it’s a unique opportunity for entrepreneurs to share their story -- how they got to where they are, and what they learned along the way. Hosted by guest emcee, John Keserich, Partner at BDO, we’re shifting the spotlight to the PEOPLE behind the companies that are building leading edge technology, right here in our own backyard.

With just six minutes and forty seconds on the clock, don't miss this inspiring, fast-paced event as six BC entrepreneurs take to the stage to accept the six:forty challenge.
