Canadian Financing Forum partners with Bootup Labs

Posted by Rob Lewis

The Canadian Financing Forum is back for 2010 and will take place on January 28th at the Hyatt in Vancouver. The Canadian Financing Forum attracts leading Venture Capital and Corporate Investors from Canada, US and abroad.

The 2010 Forum will have two presenting streams - Information Technology and Cleantech & Advanced Technology - and organizers are on the look out for presenting companies. If you're interested, be sure to beat the January 5th submission deadline for company selection.

In addition to the regular Forum, organizers are mixing it up a bit this year and have partnered with Vancouver-based Bootup Labs, the BC Innovation Council and the Bootup Entrepreneurial Society to host Demo Days. Running concurrently with the Financing Forum, ten Digital Media companies will present to the VC-laden audience in the afternoon on January 28th and then again the next week in Silicon Valley.

Five of the companies will be from Bootup Labs current portfolio of investments and the remaining five spots will be available to other Digital Media Startups. If you're interested, be sure to get your application in quick.

The partnership provides a great opportunity for investors to meet some new innovative companies in the Digital Media area while attending the Financing Forum. We are pleased to work with Bootup Demo Days. Running the two events together provides more opportunity and exposure for both companies and investors.

The 2009 Canadian Financing Forum featured 28 presenting companies and investors from Silicon Valley, Seattle, Eastern US, Toronto, Montreal, Alberta and British Columbia.
