Echosec develops a social media searching software platform that provides actionable intelligence to law enforcement, security, intelligence, marketing, and journalism professionals. The software makes it simple to see what is going on, on the ground, in real time. In less than a second, the platform contacts all of the data services it taps into (think Twitter, Instagram, VK), aggregates and normalizes their response, scans for alerts and priority keywords and forwards any notifications directly to the customers. The composite results are also live streamed to the connected end user for digestion. Simply put: a user draws a box or 'geo-fence' around an area of interest on the map within our application. Then, all of the publicly available and geo-tagged social media posts within that geo-fence are live streamed onto the map.
The company was started as a part of the Masters program at UVic called Engineering Entrepreneurship. The program is run under Stephan Neville and Ted Darcie with the goal of fulfilling a Masters degree while simultaneously launching a startup. The investment backing and industry guidance is provided by Wesley Clover.

Giftbit is challenging the fundamental assumptions of the gift card industry to make gift cards more cost effective, simple, and smart. In 2014, companies spent over $40 billion in digital gift cards for incentive and rewards programs. Roughly $8 billion (20%) of those cards will never be used. Giftbit is a complete solution to this problem. Our SaaS platform enables companies to easily send, manage and track digital gift cards. Through our proprietary technology, we ensure companies only pay for gift cards people use.

A Makerspace is a member operated shared space where people come together and collaborate while sharing tools, resources and knowledge. One tool can be effectively duplicated many times over by sharing it, in the same way that our learning experiences are shared.
When you walk into our Makerspace, your first thoughts may be, “Wow, I could make anything here, if only I knew how.” Then after talking to a few people, you realize the vast amounts of experience and knowledge that exists. Anything you would like to know about, someone has either done it or has a really good idea how to do it. It soon becomes apparent that almost anything is possible.
The Victoria Makerspace offers Metalworking, Woodworking, Electronics, 3D printing and Laser cutting, CAD design tools and a CNC machine, a recording studio, and even a molecular biology lab. All in a member-run space where you are empowered to use the machines directly and learn how to create amazing things, whether for a hobby, general learning, or to start a new business. We have student memberships, offer internships, and are just a short bus ride away from the main UVic campus!"
