As a not-for-profit, New Ventures BC promotes entrepreneurship through innovation. Each year, we run the Innovate BC-New Venture 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.
The New Ventures BC Competition is an awesome way to galvanize the local start-up community, bring expert mentors together, and focus on the fundamentals of starting a tech company.
We are targeting a much larger market with a better business plan, and have closed $1m in seed funding. We’re creating more jobs, all as a result of participating in the competition.
We are extremely grateful for receiving the recognition and support from the team behind the competition. Being recognized as a winner provides us with additional validation in support of our fund raising activities.
The NVBC process and mentors help even the most seasoned veterans elevate their game and really this hard about the business and strategy. In every case, we graduated from the competition a better, more viable company.
Through each stage of the competition we learned from industry leaders on everything from fundraising to execution strategy. On behalf of our entire team I would like to sincerely thank NVBC for giving our business the best “kick start” possible.
