What we're about

Kitsilano Business Leaders meetup is a lasting legacy of Kitsilano Chamber of Commerce which merged with Greater Vancouver Board of Trade in 2014. We're a friendly edu-networking business group in Metro Vancouver including solopreneurs, start-ups, micro business owners, as well as brick and mortar retail merchants.


Kickstart your morning once a month with keynote presentations by stellar speakers. Enjoy camaraderie and have fun. Meet, mingle, connect, and learn. People do business with people they like and trust. Develop like and trust with us.

Successful networking means continuously building trust and new connections; continuously welcoming new people into your circle of influence.

Learn and share what steps your business can take to generate more leads, manage more calls, close more sales, operate more efficiently, and how to successfully manoeuvre your business through a rapidly changing world.

RUCKIFY, Draw Inspiration From Successes Around You: DAVID BURTYN

Exploring new possibilities for your business? No need to reinvent the wheel, piggyback on successful trail blazing models to create profitable niches that have high demand and little competition. DAVID BURTYN, Community and Retail Partnerships Manager at RUCKIFY (the rent anything marketplace platform) will excite your creative juices to uncover profitable problem solving niches. For example, two entrepreneurs met one afternoon over a chainsaw and a fallen tree. The chainsaw not having the power to cut through the thick stump of the tree got them thinking... surely one of our neighbors has something that could help us? That was the moment Ruckify was born, something akin to Airbnb model, but for equipment and personal belongings; a platform that allows you to rent everything from electronics to tools to party supplies and RVs; a platform that gives everyone the opportunity to experience the financial and ecological rewards of sharing something that you own with others. TAKEAWAYS * How to identify possible niches, do market research, and piggyback on already successful models in different fields. * Can you do it alone, or need partners/sponsors? * Marketing LinkedIn contact for David Burtyn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/david-burtyn-05148a7a/ GIFT David is delighted to get to know our Kitsilano Business Leaders. He will gift you $25 in your Ruckify account for trying out the free platform on top of the $10 given to every new user.
