Community Futures Development Corporation – North Okanagan along with Okanagan Partnership has awarded local integrated marketing agency, Twin Creek Media, a web development project known (for now!) as the Our Okanagan Web Portal.
A significant potential for collaboration, information flow and new business opportunities exist with the development and promotion of Our Okanagan Web Portal. This Portal presents an opportunity for non-profits, government bodies, businesses, and the general public to come together under one umbrella. The portal will strengthen & tie together key business groups like the Economic Development Commission, Chambers of Commerce and specialty groups such as the Okanagan Science and Technology Council.
James Shaw, Creative Director/Principal at Twin Creek Media, says “To be honest this is an entrepreneur’s dream project. The team here is so excited to be involved in such an important project. Showcasing the Okanagan’s business talent is very meaningful. Connecting business to business, person to person, can only result in more jobs, more knowledge, and ultimately a stronger local economy. Brilliant idea. Well done Community Futures.”
The web portal will be a powerful business community site for residents of the Okanagan and potential investors who wish to relocate here.
Unique features of the portal include:
- Businesses can inventory and showcase their products & services
- Individuals can search the new comprehensive database using advanced filters
- Creation of new opportunities for businesses and individuals to work together
- People will be able to search for jobs, investment opportunities, and learn about local business resources available
- Individuals can connect with each other a number of ways, including online social media tools
The Our Okanagan Web Portal also presents the opportunity to promote our business sector to the world. This is an amazing chance for greater national and international recognition!
The contract was signed in late 2009, with branding responsibilities given to Touchpoint Agency, and site programming/implementation duties given to Twin Creek Media. Project launch is due Spring 2010.
