Launch Academy Companies Raise Over $57M In Funding

Over the past three years, Launch Academy has achieved some incredible milestones, from securing our first twelve startups on day one to hosting Canada’s largest gathering of growth-hackers at Traction Conf.

To celebrate our many achievements, we’re releasing a new infographic (below) to illustrate the impact we’ve had on the community over the last three years. Some highlights from our milestones:

  • Over 350+ startups in fifteen trending industries have passed through our doors
  • Launch Academy companies have collectively raised over $57M in funding, and created more than 635 jobs in the BC economy
  • For every $1 spent, Launch Academy has returned $61 in GDP for the economy, making it one of the most cost-efficient technology hubs in the country

As a lean team of six, we’re very proud that we’ve been able to achieve these results in such a short period of time. We’d like to take the opportunity to thank our loyal community of entrepreneurs, mentors, community builders and supporters for helping us build out our vision. We couldn’t have done it without you.

Launch Academy is currently nominated for ‘Best Impact’ for the Small Business BC Awards. If you’d like to support us in our mission, we encourage you to vote for us here.
