Our Team

Vancouver Startup Week is run by a team of passionate, dedicated volunteers, each of whom come from the startup ecosystem in Vancouver (and beyond): entrepreneurs, developers, designers, community organizers, fundraisers, investors, accelerators and incubators, and service providers.

The Vancouver-run initiative is organized by the non-profit Vancouver Startup Society. We are also proud to enjoy a relationship with Techstars, one of the premiere accelerator programs in the United States and whose great team coordinates Startup Weeks worldwide.
