Over seven jam-packed days, Vancouver Startup Week connects entrepreneurs, investors, community leaders, and friends to build momentum and opportunity around our community’s unique entrepreneurial identity.
Vancouver Startup Week (VSW) is run by a team of passionate, dedicated volunteers, each of whom come from the startup ecosystem in Vancouver and beyond.
The initiative is organized by the non-profit Vancouver Startup Society.We are proud to enjoy a relationship with Techstars, one of the premiere startup accelerator programs in the United States and whose great team coordinates Startup Weeks in every part of the globe.
Our mission is to foster connections among entrepreneurs, investors, leaders, and friends, as we support and celebrate the Greater Vancouver startup community. Our vision is to empower and make Vancouver the most attractive city for future leaders of emerging businesses.
Vancouver Startup Week is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples, including the territories of the xwməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
