Angels & Investors Connect in Launch Academy

Today, some of Vancouver's top angels and investors congregated in our meeting room to hear local startup pitches.

The event was hosted by our partners, Brent Holliday, Andrew Jones and Paul Kedrosky, to bring together entrepreneurs working in a variety of industries with people who are looking to invest. It was an excellent opportunity to spread the word about the new Launch Academy office and the critical piece of the Vancouver startup puzzle that we're providing.

It was fascinating to hear about the different types of startups in Vancouver, considering that Launch Academy members are working primarily on online and software businesses. An example of the startups that pitched today:

  • semiosBIO: "a research company dedicated to developing safe and environmentally-friendly pest management solutions"
  • ePACT: an online communication and emergency preparedness system
  • BPG Werks: Home of the DTV Shredder (watch the video below)
