Vancouver Startup Week 2017 is upon us once again! The spotlight is on the startup community for the week, as series of events is planned that places a focus on fostering innovation and entrepreneurship in Vancouver.


Over the course of three short years, Vancouver Startup Week continues to demonstrate the startup community’s ability to come together to support one another. After a resounding success last year, VSW looks to build awareness and support for the innovative leaders based right here in Vancouver.

VSW 2017 takes on a “Connecting the community, changing the world” theme, referencing the importance of Vancouver’s tech and innovation companies’ ability to thrive when global relationships are leveraged to reap benefits.

For the third year in a row, the 2017 BCIC-New Ventures Competition Awards Ceremony on Monday, Sept 25 will serve as the kickoff event for Vancouver Startup Week. The VSW Kickoff Social will immediately follow the conclusion of the ceremony, and is free of charge for all attendees of the NVBC awards ceremony.

Vancouver Startup Week’s schedule features great events such as Fundamentals of Funding: Learn what you need to know, Angel Investing Demystified, and the official VSW recruitment fair. Entry to all events is available with the purchase of a VSW2017 Pass.
