What to Expect
On September 30th, join us in cheering on students from S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Self-Employment Training (SET) Program, who will take the virtual 'stage' to present their businesses with the goal of getting strategic feedback from leaders in the Vancouverstartup ecosystem.
As an attendee, you will have the opportunity to vote on the audience favourite, as well as engage with students and panel via polls, Q&A and Live Chat. And, if you feel you can support the student or just want to connect, we'll provide space for that as well.
For our part, we commit to creating a comfortable and engaging space for the startup community to gather.
