Neil Huff’s Goodbye – moving from Foresight to BC Innovation Council
I wanted to let you know that I have accepted a senior role with the BC Innovation Council (BCIC), and I will be transitioning from Foresight to BCIC over the next few weeks.
While I am excited about this new opportunity, leaving Foresight is bittersweet. I could never have imagined that Foresight would be where it is today when I first pitched the idea (to BCIC!) all those years ago. Together, we have built an incredible community, supported many up-and-coming Canadian entrepreneurs on their way to success, and built an innovation challenge program (ARCTIC) that is breaking new ground. I am so proud of what we’ve accomplished, and working with our many partners, Executives in Residence, and companies has been a highlight of my career.
I’m delighted to say that I will continue to stay involved in Foresight on the Board. I am also playing a very active role in finding the new Managing Director. I can assure you that Foresight will remain in very good hands and, with the recent addition of Foresight Growth, will continue to help our incredible Canadian innovators reach their full potential.
My new role will allow me to support and grow our tech community in new and different ways. I look forward to crossing paths with many of you and to working together to cement BC’s status as a global tech destination.
