As a not-for-profit, New Ventures BC promotes entrepreneurship through innovation. Each year, we run the BCIC-New Ventures Competition, offering education, coaching, and $275,000+ in prizes to BC startups. We also provide training and mentorship for early-stage tech companies in our Distance Venture Acceleration Program.
Our programs. Your impact. Be a part of it.
We learned new things that helped us refine the message and helped us to avoid common mistakes. The seminars are packed full of information that will help guide your business, and the networking sessions offer you a chance to meet all the right people to help move your business forward.
The most invaluable and well run program we have ever participated in – simply a #mustdo for any tech entrepreneur in BC.
We were able to refine our business plan and receive feedback from a fantastic mentor panel. I highly encourage start-ups to participate!
While we did not end up winning cash prizes that year we did gain incredible value through the networking, mentorship and education that NVBC provided. We made connections that continue to be of value today.
NVBC has provided an additional network to tap into and resulted in an introduction to the VANTEC angels. Excellent mentor panel feedback during the presentations. Provided tight timelines to apply the rigor needed to finalize the business plan.
