Our Approach – Theory of Change

InBC’s vision is to catalyze a more prosperous, sustainable and inclusive future for British Columbia. This impact will be achieved by deploying capital to drive innovation in B.C. using a triple bottom line approach, guided by four impact objectives – advance reconciliation, drive climate action, elevate inclusive communities and innovate for the future.

InBC’s work will build upon and add to existing efforts of the provincial government and organizations across the province to advance the economy in three main areas:

Increasing availability of local capital based in B.C.

Actively supporting companies and venture funds with a strong connection to B.C.

Investing with long-term timelines aligned to big visions and triple bottom line objectives
