A web portal designed to attract global investment to northwest B.C. won an award at the annual Northern B.C. Business and Technology awards night in Prince George January 9.

Invest in Northwest BC, a regional investment website developed with communities throughout northwest B.C., earned two nominations at the event and took home the ‘Technology Provider of the Year’ award.

The site was also nominated in the ‘Technology and Industry Newsmaker of the Year’ award category.

The website, which Northern Development Initiative Trust spearheaded on behalf of northwest communities, was launched last spring.

Since then, it has promoted investment opportunities in municipalities such as Prince Rupert, Terrace, Kitimat, Queen Charlotte and others, and helped connect potential investors with economic development officers throughout the region.

The website, which was designed by Prince George’s Concept Design and Sticky Wicket Designs, was the first of its kind in the province, and used state-of-the-art technology to host information that potential investors could use to make informed business decisions.

The website also integrated social media applications, and is continually updated to provide the latest business information to maximize opportunities for the region.
