    Victoria, BC - April 22, 2016 - LlamaZOO Interactive Inc. was named the Innovation Award winner at the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce’s 2016 Greater Victoria Business Awards.  This award recognizes LlamaZOO for its efforts to revolutionize education through the creation of an interactive 3D learning platform.

    “Innovation is interesting because it’s constantly advancing.” says Charles Lavigne, LlamaZOO’s co-founder and CEO. “For us, winning an innovation award represents that we’re still on the cusp of innovation. What we’re trying to do is incredibly difficult, and getting recognition along the way feels fantastic.”

    The Innovation category was narrowed down to only two finalists prior to the awards gala held at The Fairmont Empress - LlamaZOO and StarFish Medical.

    “To be alongside an amazing company like StarFish Medical is an honour, and testament to the vibrant high tech industry in our city,” says Kevin Oke, co-founder and VP of Sales.

    In addition to this Innovation Award, LlamaZOO has also been recognized as one of Douglas Magazine’s 10 to Watch in 2016, the only company in BC to receive the 2015 Futurpreneur Spin Master Innovation Fund, and Startup of the Year at the 2015 VIATEC Technology Awards. Having recently advanced to Round 2 of this year’s BCIC New Ventures Competition, LlamaZOO appears on track for even more recognition and success in the near future.
