BCIC New Ventures Competition Awards Ceremony, Vancouver, BC – September 26, 2016

LlamaZOO Interactive Inc. (“LlamaZOO”) was named the Top Regional Startup winner in the 2016 BCIC New Ventures Competition. This award is accompanied by a $10,000 cash prize, and recognizes LlamaZOO as the top placing venture located outside Metro Vancouver in New Ventures BC’s annual province-wide business competition for early stage tech companies.

“We have made several tremendous advancements over the past few months, both with EasyAnatomy specifically, and overall as a company. Winning this award is greatly appreciated recognition for our progress as a business, and for our team’s huge effort over the summer.” said LlamaZOO’s co-founder and CEO Charles Lavigne.

This year’s BCIC New Ventures Competition began with over 165 entrants. The field was then narrowed down to a final 10 companies over three rounds of pitch presentations and consolidated business plan submissions. Previous winners of the competition have gone on to experience exponential growth and be acquired by multi-million dollar companies, and include MediaCore (acquired by Workday), GenoLogics (acquired by Illumina), and Vonigo.

“Charles and I made a conscious decision to build this company in Victoria, and we have received fantastic support from the local community all along the way. We’re very happy to help shine some light on the amazing tech ecosystem Victoria has to offer.”

The Top Regional Startup award comes on the heels of LlamaZOO’s invitation to China to attend the inaugural meeting of the Virtual Reality Venture Capital Alliance (VRVCA), and the launch of its subscription-based software application for the veterinary education market – EasyAnatomy. EasyAnatomy has found significant early traction, with customers including major institutions such as the University of Pennsylvania, home of the oldest medical school in North America, and the Western College of Veterinary Medicine, one of the oldest schools of its kind in Canada, along with individual veterinary students from over 30 schools across five continents.
