2014

Growing small technology businesses.  "The Missing 'M' in SME. Why small technology businesses fail to grow" is our focus for 2014 including a survey conducted in Feb/Mar (MEDIA RELEASE). The Survey was followed by the conduct of pan-Alberta site consultations through Sep/Oct. Of particular interest is the impact of early exits - depriving enterprises AND Alberta of valuable assets.  ABCtech's provincial co-host for the consults was the Institute of Certified Management Consultants of Alberta  The consultation is now complete with the Report and recommendations made public October 20th, 2014 HERE


ABCtech Media Productions.  The Program "The Next Question" has been created for US public radio and features 2-minutes audio clips from interviews sizing up emerging technologies: fusion energy, genomics & cell therapies, levitated transportation, data analytics and privacy. Let us know if you have a story to tell.

Unified Communications Plan.  Communications is essential for promoting the commercialization of emerging technologies. Social Media.  We have introduced several social media forums:

Scoop.it      Pinterest      Google+     Facebook     Twitter

We are currently beta testing options for enhancing relationship and knowledge management for our subscribers. Also, we are drawing together our suppliers for developing a unified communications plan under the leadership of HABIT, formerly Ignition Media. The Plan is to include a complete review of ABCtech's communications options and messaging and how best to support our theme for 2015 - see below.
