Bright and early Sunday morning, the Kano/Apps team crawled out of bed to participate in the TC10K Corporate Team Challenge. Congratulations to all the Kano/Apps runners for completing the race under their estimated times!
- Charlie presents, look for the “Ash” card.
We had our third Kano Hack Game Jam Friday. The Spring CCG Challenge turned out to be our most successful Jam yet. Each team created an engaging Collectible Card Game. These Collectible Card Games were presented with amazing graphics, in-depth programming, and even elaborate stories of thermonuclear warheads and survivors vying for ever-diminishing resources.

Last night was the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce Business Awards 2013 and KANO/APPS was lucky to strike gold!
We were honoured just to be with the other finalists at such a prestigious local event and even more honoured to witness Keith Dagg win the Governor’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
On behalf of the KANO/APPS team, we would like to congratulate Jessica Cruise (finalist for Young Entrepreneur of the Year) and all the other finalists and winners for their excellence in business and community development.
We would also like to thank the Chamber for the nod, Sang-Kiet Ly from KPMG for the nomination and Dan Gunn of VIATeC and Alex Mendelev of Gamehouse for supporting it.
Although my name is on it, this award really represents the efforts of my co-founders, our awesome team and the huge support system we have including our families, spouses and friends who support us and are behind us every step of the way.
Young Entrepreneur of the Year should really be Team of the Year as our success is far from any one individual’s accomplishment.
Thanks to the KANO/APPS team for making moments like this possible and allowing me to represent a company and team I am extremely proud of.
We couldn’t have asked for a better day at Games without Frontiers this past Saturday, March 9th.
Presentations, panel discussions, game demonstrations, a game jam, and even live gaming music took place throughout the day. Kano/Apps co-founder and CEO, Tim Teh, spoke on a panel regarding the future of gaming. The event wrapped up with presentations from Game Jam participants.
We had a great turn out from the Kano/Apps team. Our members performed live art demonstrations and operated a Free Rider 3 contest. Gamers of all ages enjoyed the Kano/Apps culture.
We’d like to thank David Leach, all the volunteers, and gaming enthusiasts for making the event such a success!
