What we're about

Vancouver Founders Meetup was originally Vancouver Pixel Crafters, a meetup created by Boris Mann, an open-source developer, entrepreneur, and angel investor what has been an advocate and supporter of the Vancouver technology ecosystem for over a decade.

The original vision of the meetup is to be an open forum to promote events that celebrate collaboration, drive towards a more closely-knit tech startup community, and highlight the people and companies building great products and adding great value.

Vancouver’s world-class startup community and talent pool has significant untapped potential. A stronger more diverse network of entrepreneurs and investors can lead to more efficient and timely business relationships, referrals and recommendations between peers.

Meetups posted on Vancouver Founders are managed by their respective organizer.

If you are a community organizer regularly organizing events targetting the Vancouver tech startup community let us know and we will add you as an organizer so you can post your events.

-------------------------------------------------------------

PS: We do not manage, regulate or supervise the events posted or their content, we do however stand for promoting a community spirit focused on trustworthiness, walking the talk, helping others, and adding value. And we will remove any organizer that posts an event that compromises on those values in any way.

Startup Drinks Vancouver

Shebeen Whiskey House

"Startup drinks" is a casual gathering on the third Thursday of every month for anyone who's interested in startups and business in general. We meet at The Shebeen (in-behind The Irish Heather) in downtown Vancouver and we chat about all things #startups...projects, funding, challenges, etc. This is a great opportunity to connect with others in the community and a great way to connect on a regular basis. See you there :)
