What we're about

Digital Okanagan is an inclusive and diverse community of digital creatives, visionaries and entrepreneurs from across the valley, represented by a wide spectrum of industries, professions and specializations.

As a grassroots volunteer driven community, we work with a variety of industries throughout the Okanagan, to activate a large network of creative and technology professionals.

Our ambition is to make the Okanagan the greatest place to do what we love... together.

Through our actions, it is our goal to:

Sustain the growth of the Okanagan’s digital professional community within our region.

Celebrate and promote individuals and organizations that foster creativity, technology and digital media in the Okanagan.

Engage with and encourage new and established professionals to stay in the Okanagan in order to increase capacity and productivity within the industry.

Promote openness, creativity and collaboration between individuals and organizations, acting as the digital hub for our community.

Through this connection and support we believe that our creative economy will thrive.

We believe:

Collaboration > Competition

Community > Agendas

Participation > Observation

Doing > Saying

Friendship > Formality

Learning > Expertise

Digital Okanagan creates experiences that encourage community members to learn and grow, exploring shared interests in and outside of work. Our array of learning, sharing, connecting events provide opportunities to break loose from the status quo and explore exciting new things while building lasting relationships with our peers.

Cohere - Gather, Imagine and Collaborate

Are you constantly feeling the creative tension of moving ideas into action? Perhaps you're seeking a group of skilled collaborators, all with an intrepid mission of conscious learning, sustainable growth and transformation for a flourishing future.

We're excited to share that Trep Cafe is boldly transitioning in a new direction, ignited by the community's imagination. For this inaugural session we'll be sharing the proposed plan to shift from a casual weekly conversation to an aligned and intentional initiative that catalyzes potential in a streamlined format.

Cohere will contain the following valuable opportunities for members:

  • Build a vibrant network: members are not just 'connections', they are your community of supports who are invested in each other's success and well-being.
  • Shared wisdom: every gathering is filled with gifts of learning, challenge, growth and gratitude.
  • Get help: present your issue to find clarity and get unstuck with the guidance of mentors, coaches and experts.
  • Amplify ideations: pitch your impactful ideas for feedback, guidance, and collaboration.

Every meeting will be facilitated and resources will be recorded, archived and made available to members.

Cohere will resonate for you if:

  • You love to meet new new people who are living creatively and authentically in an entrepreneurial path
