Who should Launch @ GROW this summer? Have your say!

by Rob Lewis

Last year's inaugural GROW Conference in Vancouver was a huge success and it's returning to the West Coast again this August 17-19th at the new Vancouver Conference Center.

This year GROW is getting the community even more involved with the Launch@GROW contest. GROW has partnered with Vancouver's Bootup Entrepreneurial Society to host a startup video competition with the winners pitching their startups to Silicon Valley VCs.

The deadline for startups to enter the competition has passed but now it's time to get your vote on. You've got until July 16th to vote your favorite startup through to the Top 25 so that judges can consider them for selection into the Top 15.

The Top 15 will Launch @ GROW on the evening of August 17th and four of those startups will be selected to pitch live on stage the following day at the GROW Conference. Which is a very big deal considering who will be in the audience.

61 startups from across Canada entered the competition and Toronto's Rocketr has jumped into the lead with 89 votes. Squamish's Tiipz is currently in 2nd and St. John's ClearRisk is in 3rd.

Check out all the entries and be sure to vote for your favorite now.
