A British Columbia incubator/accelerator offering:
The BC TECH Association and e@UBC based in Vancouver, BC will collectively offer “soft” landing space to select companies from Washington and Oregon based on availability in 2018.
Companies will have access to seminars, advisory services and networking opportunities. MOU partners-related companies will also have access to resources available through other BC-based accelerators such as connections to research hospitals institutions of higher education, commercialization centres and non-dilutive funding opportunities through strategic partnerships to speed up their commercialization process.
A British Columbia venture capital-related opportunity:
The CVAN intends to build upon the success of the Cascadia Venture Forum to create a Cascadia Venture Competition, open to early stage technology ventures in the region. Winners will gain exposure to the investment community; we are also talking with sponsors to support a substantial cash prize for the top winners. The Competition will be a partnership across the networks’ members to recognize, celebrate, and support technology start-ups across Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia.”
