Celebrating Innovation Accelerators
September 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
So much of the business conversation and focus during the pandemic has been on the incredible challenges faced by our SMEs, hospitality and restaurants. While this is true and noteworthy, the broader shifts in our economic base and the drive towards innovation has only accelerated in our region.
In less than a year, many Greater Vancouver companies have realized billion-dollar valuations. A few examples are Dapper Labs, Trulioo, Ocean Robotics, Cymax Group, Thinkific, AbCellera, Clio – Cloud-Based Legal Technology and Galvanize.
While we are a small market, Vancouver punches well above its weight in technology, innovation, cleantech, creative, and increasingly life sciences to name a few. This is big news. We need to celebrate it, build a cohesive narrative about the where we’ve come from but more importantly, where we are going and how to get there. We need to collectively unite and champion business to ensure Greater Vancouver is thriving and our region is the best place to live and work.
Join us for a conversation with the leaders of Vancouver’s Tech Accelerators as we discuss and celebrate their innovation.
