Tired of the 9-to-5 grind in a stuffy office and long commutes to and from work? Employed in tech and want a flexible work schedule so you have more time to enjoy life? Working virtually is the solution and Prince George is the place to give it a try.
In Prince George, you can work or run your business in a growing tech community of forward thinking entrepreneurs. Innovative activity is happening daily through our startups, large public and private sector employers, our college and our university.
The city provides everything you need to work virtually, including high-speed Internet connectivity and easy flight access to anywhere in the world that business takes you. But what makes Prince George stand out compared to other possible virtual work locations is the ability to enjoy all of the amenities you desire, along with the lifestyle and affordability benefits you can’t find in larger urban centres.
All you need to get started is the support of your employer, or an idea for a tech business and the drive to be an entrepreneur, along with a computer, a smartphone and a home office. Unless, of course, you prefer working in a coworking space, in which case, we’ve got you covered. The Hubspace is located in the heart of downtown Prince George and offers a collaborative coworking space, and hosts tech-sector meetups. The best part is there are a number of independent pubs, restaurants, a microbrewery and trendy coffee shops that pride themselves on sourcing products locally, all within a three block radius.
We have the connectivity, a growing tech community, and lots of cool people doing cool things. All we need is you!
