Ready to Rocket 2018 – Ignition On!


Nominations are now being accepted for the 2018 Ready to Rocket lists published each year by Rocket Builders.

The Ready to Rocket lists feature those BC technology companies that are best positioned to capitalize on the largest growth trends in the technology industry, and is broken into four categories:

  • CleanTech (includes renewable energy, green transportation, electric motors, green chemistry, lighting, environmental protection and any innovation that improves energy efficiency).
  • Life Sciences (includes biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, healthcare information technology and other innovations improving health).
  • Digital Health (includes medical health record management, corporate wellness, personal health and wellness applications and wearables).
  • ICT (includes information, communications, wireless, new media and internet technologies).

Check out the nomination criteria, and then nominate a company you think should be on this year’s 16th Annual Ready to Rocket List.  Nominations are open until February 16, but the earlier you get a nomination in the more opportunity the selection committee will have to review. And if you think a company might be a bit early stage for the Ready to Rocket lists, they may still qualify for the Emerging Rockets lists, designed for those companies just entering the market.

The Ready To Rocket and Emerging Rockets lists will be announced on March 8, 2018.


McMillan is proud to sponsor the Ready to Rocket recognition program, as a part of BC’s vibrant and growing technology sector.
