On October 9th Startup Grind is excited to be welcoming Danny Robinson as the featured speaker for our third event in Vancouver, BC. Danny has been an entrepreneur and active member of the startup community in Vancouver and North America for over 15 years. We will be sitting down with him for an in-depth fireside chat about founding early-stage technology companies, what it means to succeed in the startup ecosystem both here in Vancouver and the Bay Area, and his experience starting the first seed accelerator in Vancouver. We are also excited to welcome Zone Vancouver as an official venue sponsor for this event. Zone Vancouver is a stylish new venue for meetings, workshops and private events in Gastown. Modern, versatile event space where ideas can flourish, creativity can emerge and connections can be made. Zone Vancouver is available for booking as of September 2013 and is suitable for networking events, meetings, private celebrations, launches, workshops, pop up galleries, retail events and other soirées. October's event also brings another new and exciting feature, drinks! As requested we will now be offering a variety of drinks at each of the events courtesy of Privatis. Privatis provides privacy tools that protect users of online classified ad sites and marketplaces from harassment by telemarketers and fraudsters while facilitating seamless communications by phone, SMS and email.
