The Vancouver Economic Commission is pleased to partner with Spring, New Ventures BC and Highline BETA to deliver the Discovery Foundation Capital Mentorship Program and Vancouver Technology Showcase. The Discovery Foundation Capital Mentorship Program is designed to help early-stage, for-profit entrepreneurs become more strategic in raising capital critical to accelerating their ventures. Running from April 25th through to the end of May, the program is a series of impactful events featuring panels, workshops, pitch training, investor–company matching and networking opportunities.

This program will most benefit CEOs and founders of growth-oriented technology and impact economy companies in Metro Vancouver who have already launched a product or service. Their companies generate revenue and are ready to seek external sources of funding to accelerate growth; they are planning their investment strategy and are looking at a timeline of raising capital in the next six months.

The Capital Mentorship Program kicks off with a sold-out ‘Strategic Fundraising 101’ workshop, which functions as a prelude to the main stage of the program, Mastermind: Capital. Beginning today, the VEC invites Vancouver-based tech entrepreneurs to apply to this stage—an entrepreneur-only, hands-on and cohort-based series of workshops delivered by Spring and complimented by special guests aimed at accelerating founders’ efforts to raise capital.
