Vancouver is recognized as one of the world’s fastest-growing Startup communities.

Vancouver Startup Week is one of our favorite times of the year because it showcases what this community is all about. It is great to see all the amazing innovations, ideas, and investors who make up the ecosystem.

This year we hosted an event called Capital Talks on the Patio with some great partners: BDC, BDO and BLG. We also had the Very Good Butchers cooking up delicious plant based BBQ and Container Brewing having a taste test of their latest brew. Check out their campaign pages on FrontFundr Very Good Butchers (In Live Campaigns) & Container Brewing (In Coming Soon).

This year’s panel discussion topic was all about raising capital; how to get ready, timing, best practices, and different types of raises. FrontFundr’s passion is to make it as easy as possible for everyone to invest in great businesses. As thought leaders in the industry that is a topic we continue to explore and promote. With close to 150 investors and entrepreneurs attendees it was by all accounts FrontFundr’s biggest event yet. We are planning to make it an annual event going forward and continue to contribute to the ecosystem.

I want to thank everyone for your ongoing support, and looking forward to seeing you at our future events!
