 VICTORIA – Another feather for her cap.

Julie Angus, co-founder and CEO of Open Ocean Robotics, has been named winner of the Innovator Award in the first annual BC Business Women of the Year Awards. A gala celebration will be held September 28 at the Vancouver Club in Vancouver.

A panel of four judges chose the winners in six different categories from organizations large and small from across the province. Another Vancouver Island winner was Pauline Stevenson, CEO and founder of Excel Career College of Courtenay in the Leader classification.

There were runners-up in three categories from Victoria: Toni Desrosiers, founder and CEO of Abeego in Innovator, Origin Bakery co-founders Tara Black and Marion Scott in Community Builder, and Kyla Dufresne, founder and CEO of Foxy Box Wax Bar in Rising Star.

The recognition is the latest for Open Ocean Robotics, which creates “robots of the sea”. They received a $22,000 BC Resource Industry award last fall for their autonomous, un-manned, un-personned and un-crewed vessels that collect data for ocean research and surveillance.
