This showcase is part of Discovery Foundation’s Regional Investor Readiness Program & will feature 8 women-led startups from across BC.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
On December 8, join us in cheering on eight women-led startups from across British Columbia, who will take the virtual 'stage' to present their investor pitch with goals of getting strategic pitch feedback from industry leaders from the Canadian startup ecosystem. This will be our final BC Startup Showcase of Discovery Foundation's Regional Investor Readiness Program.
These entrepreneurs will have 3 minutes to present their pitch in front of an industry panel and 'live' audience.
As an attendee, you will have the opportunity to vote on the audience favourite, as well as engage with entrepreneurs and panel via polls, Q&A and Live Chat. And, if you feel you can support the entrepreneurs or just want to connect, we'll provide space for that as well.
For our part, we are committed to creating a comfortable and engaging space for all who attend.
Interested in pitching? While we hold spots for entrepreneurs from across the province, preference will be given to entrepreneurs who...

- Are from rural and/or remote British Columbia
- Identify within a racialised and/or historically marginalised group/community
