British Columbia’s capital city of Victoria has far outgrown its reputation as just a quiet haven for retirees. It is full of young, enthusiastic energy, sparked by an increasingly vibrant startup community.
Fully embracing the sometimes quirky and always innovative west coast culture, Victoria has grown into one of the hippest and coolest cities in Western Canada. In the 2016 Readers’ Choice Awards survey with Conde Nast Traveler, Victoria was ranked as one of the top ten cities in the world. It’s no surprise, really, with its seamless mix of charming gardens, abundance of outdoor activities, and booming tech sector.
The young and ambitious startup community in Victoria is positively bustling with activity. Bruce Livingston, founder of iStock, moved from Los Angeles to Victoria a few years to start a new stock photography company called Stocksy. The network of tech people in the city is well connected and continues to grow, with firms approaching everything from mobile games to interface design, social activities to product marketing.
This community naturally lends itself to serendipitous inspiration and collaborations between like-minded solopreneurs, freelancers, and emerging small business owners. The supportive business climate illustrates the assertion that just because you work for yourself doesn’t mean you need to work by yourself.
With some of the warmest winters and most breathtaking summers in Canada, Victoria offers year-round opportunities for outdoor exploring. Need to take a break and get out of the city? Ride your bike along the picturesque Galloping Goose Trail, a 60 kilometre biking trail that leads to Sooke on the southern tip of Vancouver Island. Enjoy the gorgeous views of Victoria’s Inner Harbour, take a stroll to Fisherman’s Wharf, or tee off at one of the area’s many golf courses.
The Network Hub Victoria is conveniently located right in the heart of downtown. Easily accessible by ferry or seaplane from the mainland, the Hub is walking distance to all the amenities you may need, including shopping therapy at The Bay Centre, a pint or two at the nearby pubs, and a variety of dining options day and night.
Find out why this “city of gardens” is consistently named as Canada’s most romantic city. You’ll fall in love with the numerous business opportunities and the picturesque west coast setting.
