Vancouver startups are increasingly looking to the European Union to fuel their growth beyond North America, and that comes with opportunities and challenges. This event will cover resources and tools that support the growth of Canadian companies in the EU market: funding tools for business development and innovation on both sides of the Atlantic; a comprehensive network of people to provide market advice and make connections; and a look at how the Canada-EU Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) will reduce barriers for Canadian companies doing business in the EU.

Don’t miss this extremely informative & timely event made possible by Vancouver Start-Up Week and hosted by the EU Chamber of Commerce in Canada-West in partnership with Global Affairs Canada and the BC Ministry of International Trade. The event features high profile participants representing European Union, individual EU member states as well as the Canadian Federal and Provincial Governments.
