Startup Connect and Networking - January Kickoff Event
Let's start the year well with an exciting networking session. Come out and meet other high powered founders and tech professionals. Looking for a developer? Looking for some advice on next steps? You're at the right place. Special theme of the month - Cryptocurrencies We find that people connect easier when there's a theme of the month, conversations do not have to be around cryptocurrencies. Feel free to share any marketing and growth challenges your startup is experiencing and provide support to one another.

What we're about

Public Group

We invite startup leaders and experts to share their startup story and subject expertise relevant to startups and businesses. We bring value by asking them the hard questions everyone want to know.

We’ve been to many meetups and are tired of hearing people share generic surface level stuff what can be found on blogs and we want the meat and bread wisdom from founders. We focus on sharing stories and practical startup growth tactics that can help you go from 0 to 45K on Instagram in a few months, how to build a powerhouse team, how to get traction or approach reporters and writers, how to start a startup as a non technical and many more.

Vancouver is a growing entrepreneurial hub with many established and prominent upcoming startups. There are startup grants, good support, available capital and quality talents helping many startups scale big. There is no better time to start a startup than today here in Vancouver.

At YVR Startups we believe in the 3 I’s

Inspire- Hear stories from startup mentors and startup peers, be inspired and replicate their successes in your startups.

Inform- Be kept up to date with the latest happenings in the startup scene from new algorithm changes and growth strategies. We invite experts with results who will share with you the meat of growing a startup. No bs.

Involve- Go far and deep with our community. Connect with startup folks at our networking events, meet a co-founder and get started in a startup.

Our presenters include founders and experts in the startup community including finalists at startup competitions, Top 30 under 30 recipients, CMOs, heads of growths, VCs and other successful founders. Get ready to receive great insights on how to grow your startup to the next level.
