The Vancouver innovation ecosystem guide
Explore 150+ communities, events, accelerators, and funding opportunities.
Let's talk about Vancouver’s innovation ecosystem and culture. Simply put, it's awesome. Forget all the rankings, global reports and unicorn hype; all you have to do is talk to people working in tech here to get a sense of how dynamic the community is.
It’s not just that countless smart people are building great things.
