Launch Academy is excited to partner up with Dream2B, an organization that helps entrepreneurs go from ideation to business creation.  

This year, Dream2B is helping Brazilian technology companies connect with the Vancouver startup ecosystem through a program called Brazilian Silicon Valley North.

An exclusive agenda was designed for this congress with lectures covering different aspects such as: status of workforce in the tech industry, startup visa program, government incentives, financing options, among others.

Five awesome Brazilian technology companies will be making their first stop at Launch Academy.

  • L2 Technology (Shopping malls ERP)
  • Solides (Human Resources profiling)

Vancouver's leading startup accelerator - Launch Academy - will be hosting the major part of the first trade mission, starting on October 19 through October 21, 2015.

After the mission, BSVN project will provide support and networking opportunities to these companies with market validation activities.

“There is a lot of excitement around creating this bridge between Vancouver and Brazil,” said Ray Walia, CEO of Launch Academy. “By facilitating interaction between the two ecosystems, we could help open up new worlds of opportunities for Brazilian and Canadian entrepreneurs alike.”
