Join The 2017 Planning Committee

Vancouver Startup Week is organized each year by a team of dedicated volunteers who work hard to bring together various sectors of Vancouver’s startup community. We come from all over the world, and from all walks of life. What unites us is a passion for connecting people who are just as excited about innovation and entrepreneurship in the startup space.

We’re looking for more volunteers to join our team in planning a week of events (September 25 – 29). Whether you’ve been a part of the startup scene for years or you’re just about to get your feet wet, we want to work with you! There are a variety of portfolios to choose from, whether you’re interested in working on marketing, events, business development, etc. Those who love collaborating, sharing creative ideas, and engaging in all things tech are strongly encouraged to apply!
