Vancouver’s Leading Tech Accelerators Join Forces to Host Cascadia Startup Fest

Posted by Techvibes NewsDesk

GrowLab, Invoke Labs, Launch Academy, Spring Activator, and Wavefront are joining forces to bring you what’s bound to be the Vancouver startup event of the year: Cascadia Startup Fest - Accelerating Together.

Organized by Vancouver’s leading tech accelerators and incubators, Cascadia Startup Fest is a series of workshops and a high-energy pitch competition that connects tech entrepreneurs across the Cascadia region with investors, media, and industry professionals.

“All of us at GrowLab, Invoke Labs, Launch Academy, Spring Activator and Wavefront have been looking for ways to collaborate and fuel sustainable growth in our tech ecosystem,” said Ray Walia, Executive Director of Launch Academy. “The purpose of Cascadia Startup Fest is two fold: to share our resources with local entrepreneurs, and to showcase fast-growing, investment-ready startups that we have in our own backyard,” he added.

Leading industry pros Matthew Moore (Netscape, WebMD, Move.Inc), Michael Tippett (NowPublic, GrowLab and HootSuite) and others will explore topics like finding a technical co-founder, getting the media’s attention, customer acquisition techniques, and more.

Cascadia Startup Fest will take place on April 3rd in Vancouver at the Yaletown Roundhouse. Workshps will take place during the day and the evening agenda will showcase 25 investment-ready startups that graduated from GrowLab, Invoke Labs, Launch Academy, Spring Activator and Wavefront.
