2008 Canadian Financing Forum

Techvibes is proud to annouce that we’re sponsoring the upcoming Canadian Financing Forum at the Fairmont Waterfront Hotel in Vancouver on January 16th. Over 30 Venture Capital firms from across North America have confirmed their attendance, making it a once a year opportunity to network. To name a few: Altos Ventures, Battery Ventures, Celtic House, Chrysalix, Discovery, Edgestone, JLA Ventures, MMV, Polaris, Steelpoint, and Yaletown Venture Partners. This year’s forum will consist of two presenting company streams – Cleantech & Advanced Technology and Information Technology. Past presenters have raised over $980 Million and 46% of the presenting companies have successfully raised funds over the last 7 years (2001-2007). Not bad. Stay tuned for a complete list of the presenting companies – I suspect a few of them will be on the new Vancouver Start-up Index.
