A Life of Innovation: Remembering Business Victoria's Ken Stratford
Economic innovator Ken Stratford, who helped launch 2,500 small businesses, has died at age 77. He was working and thinking until the end, said Deanna, his wife of 53 years.
Stratford died on Jan. 10 at Victoria Hospice.
He took the helm of what became the non-profit Business Victoria 30 years ago. Stratford spent much of his life trying to help people create and thrive in technology- and information-based small businesses, green enterprise and off-the-beaten-track resource industries.
