A Closer Look at Vancouver Accelerators

Via Techvibes

Accelerators can play a key role in growing early-stage companies and university research and intellectual property into market ready ventures, but not all accelerators follow the same model or offer the same services.

On February 28th join the Vancouver Enterprise Forum and hear from a panel of BC accelerators from both Industry and University sectors as they discuss the approaches they take to address some of the key issues faced by local entrepreneurs. The panel will also debate the success of BC in growing Silicon Valley-style accelerators and connecting entrepreneurs with industry mentors and financing.

Moderated by Brent Holliday of Capital West Partners, the panel will include:

  • Wavefront's Brad Lowe
  • institute B's Darrell Kopke
  • Entrepreneurship@UBC's Todd Farrell
  • Venture Labs' John Seminerio
  • GrowLab's Jason Bailey
  • Alacrity Foundation's Owen Matthews

Prior to the event attendees will have the opportunity to tour some of the presenting accelerator's facilities. Tours so far will include GrowLab, Wavefront, and Alacrity. Register online to attend.
