In 2017, entrepreneurship is an exciting, enticing and viable route for many. Our world is in need of new solutions to age-old problems and we are surrounded by people who are motivated to initiate that change. Startups are the future and we are lucky to live in a city that is working to foster an environment that produces exceptional new companies.
You can find out how successful entrepreneurs are getting their ideas off the ground in Vancouver on Tuesday, August 29 at an event titled 5 Startups Tell All – Innovation and Disruption for Good.
Hosted by RED Academy at the school’s West Broadway location, the event is set to showcase the five BC-based finalists of digital branding agency Skyrocket’s annual Brand Prize contest. This amazing contest is open to all North American startups and gives winners the help they need to succeed in business.
Each startup will discuss how they turned their ideas into reality while remaining true to their original mission, and the process of bringing their startups to the market. And you’ll be able to join them for stories, insight, and advice on how you can create a viable business that can impact the world for the better. Plus, you’ll get to enjoy beer provided by Main Street Brewery while munching on a selection of appies after the panel discussion.
The knowledge-sharing, inspirational event is all happening because of a collaboration with RED Academy and Skyrocket. And because the five finalists are startups which are committed to innovating and disrupting their industry with a positive global impact mission.
Disruption is a term commonly heard around Silicon Valley and the ever-growing tech industry. And in the tech world, it doesn’t mean what you think it does. It’s how tech companies breakdown what already exists with the vision of creating something even better in its place.
On the night of this exciting event, you’ll get to network with fellow members of the community, entrepreneurs, and the founders of the five featured startups – so you’ll have the opportunity to make plenty of connections as well as receiving invaluable business advice.
And to make it even better, tickets to the event cost just $5. You can snap up yours by registering online now via Eventbrite. Remember to register soon before tickets are all sold out.
