Banff Venture Forum to showcase 2011 acquisitions

by Rob Lewis | Business

The 2011 Banff Venture Forum will take place October 6th and 7th at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel and two of their keynote speakers are featured on Techvibes' 2011 Canadian Tech Acquisition Tracker.

Jeff White is the CFO of New Brunswick's Radian6 which was acquired by Salesforce in March for $326 Million and Alistair Croll is a Co-Founder of Coradiant which was acquired by BMC Software in April.

The Banff Venture Forum's third keynote is no stranger to Canadian acquisitons either. Moe Kermani was the Co-Founder & CEO of Bycast which was acquired by NetApp in April 2010.

While the Banff Venture Forum promises to be an excellent venue for showcasing the leading Canadian companies in Information, Energy, and Life Sciences technology, it will be invaluble resource to up-and-coming entrepreneurs that are looking to exit by way of acquisition.

The Banff Venture Forum has been growing ever since its inception in 1999 and in 2010 it hosted over 40 venture capital firms, 32 presenting companies, and 350 delegates.

You should plan on attending the Banff Venture Forum this fall and register now.
