Yona Shtern Named Keynote Speaker of Inaugural Atlantic Venture Forum

Posted by Techvibes NewsDesk

The inaugural Atlantic Venture Forum is next month in Halifax and it's already being tagged as Atlantic Canada's premier access to capital event.

The lineup of keynote speakers is impressive and includes Charley Lax, Paul Singh, Peter van der Velden, Ben Yoskovitz, and Yona Shtern.

Shtern is the cofounder and CEO of Beyond the Rack and Techvibes readers will be very familiar with his story.

Beyond the Rack was named the fastest growing e-tailer in North America by Internet Retailer Magazine in 2011 and third fastest growing private company in Canada for 2012 by Profit magazine. Launched in 2009, Beyond the Rack has grown exponentially with eight million consumer members, 5,000 brand partners, 400 employees, annual sales in excess of $200 Million, and over $60 Million in funding.

Beyond the Rack has just launched BTR TV, an exciting new feature on the site which displays Daily Spotlight Deals. Every day at noon customers are able to see video demonstrations of the day's Spotlight items.

The Atlantic Venture Forum is currently accepting presenting company applications, so if you're looking to showcase your tech startup this summer (you don't need to be in active fundraising mode) then this would be an ideal event.
