CURRENTLY, MORE PARTICIPANTS ARE INTERESTED IN ATTENDING THIS EVENT THAN THE VENUE'S CAPACITY CAN ACCOMMODATE.

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT ALL EVENTS ARE ON A FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED BASIS.


In the spirit of Vancouver Startup Week, the BC Tech Association has convened a very special panel representing some of the most active investors in Vancouver: Jay Rhind from Vancouver Founders Fund, Lauren Robinson from HIGHLINE, Hugues Lalancette from iNovia Capital, and James Wells from Evōk Innovations.

This group represents a wide range of sector and stage focuses, and will discuss their decision making processes, how to pitch the right VCs with the right information, and how to control the fundraising process as an investor.

Capacity: 100 people

WHY ATTEND: You don't get a lot of chances to ask direct questions of VCs of this calibre. Don't miss out!
