Develop your leadership skills by joining Acetech's community today
Vancouver Tech Journal partner-submitted story.
Acetech originated over informal get-togethers driven by a basic need — talking to other like-minded CEOs who understood the tech industry. It wasn’t long before the early founders expanded their dinner conversations to engage a growing group of tech leaders. That’s when Acetech and the Annual Summit were born and, eventually, a member-based model that would better serve the community by providing ongoing engagement, learning and support to help tech companies achieve commercial success.
Our passion is supporting tech leaders and their teams to lead better, grow faster and get connected. Acetech has thrived over the last 30 years because of the passion of a group of committed leaders who care about the tech community and economy, and know what it takes to succeed.
Today, Acetech continues to be a premier not-for-profit organization created by leaders for the advancement of growing tech companies. When you join Acetech you become a member of one of the most connected, supportive and high-performing communities of tech leaders.
Acetech continues to deliver the content, connections and community needed to support both strategic and operational leadership growth. We offer a winning combination of peer networks, an annual leadership summit, and executive training curriculum derived from the top business training centres in the world.
Roundtables / Peer Networks
Being a CEO can be a lonely job; having a group that you can regularly meet with to exchange ideas, discuss strategy, and share learning is vital to leadership development. Beyond just peer learning, Acetech also offers facilitation by experienced, seasoned CEOs who have been there themselves. World class athletes have coaches and trainers to help them improve their performance. Studies show that business leaders who access coaches and training also improve their performance. The roundtables are the number one reason members join Acetech and stay for years.
Annual Leadership Summit
Consistently rated over 9.5/10 by attendees, the Annual Summit is Acetech’s premier event. During 3 days in beautiful Whistler, BC, over one hundred of the best leaders get together to elevate their thinking. With speakers from all across the world, you’ll return to your organization ready to go to the next level. More and more members are bringing their entire executive team to this event to help support strategic alignment within their company.
Acetech was first founded on the idea that if local tech leaders banded together, they could attract world-class thought leadership. We bring the best minds to you and your teams, so you don’t have to eat into your cash flow to learn elsewhere. Our executive education topics are chosen based on member feedback and current trends.
"I participated in my first meeting as a member of an Acetech roundtable this month. I can't speak highly enough about the benefits of the program. I would strongly recommend that any CEO looking to level up their corporate strategy consider an Acetech membership." ~ Kevin Dagenais, CEO at Cascadia Scientific.
