Feedback and support from 100+ experts

Our 100+ volunteers are at the core of what make our programs so successful. We are proud of having a one of the deepest rosters of exceptional mentors and judges from the BC tech industry. We thank each of them for the many hours they volunteer each year to give back to the startup community.

How our mentors can help move your venture forward

Our Competition provides our startup participants with personalized mentorship and professional feedback from leading industry experts.

Throughout the judging process, companies receive feedback on their written submissions from our  panels. In addition, our Top 25 competitors are also carefully paired with mentor teams to get the support they need not only in the competition, but with their venture. We also offer events, such as mentor panels, where companies can pitch and receive feedback.
