VEF Momentum Launches

The young turks behind VEF’s Momentum haven’t wasted any time getting things rolling. Since we last mentioned them, they’ve launched their web site, and have announced their first event:

The night will begin with icebreakers and introductions, followed by an invigorating presentation by Geordie Rose, the founder and Chief Technology Officer of D-Wave Systems. Geordie founded D-Wave out of UBC in 1999 and has been instrumental in building D-Wave into a successful Quantum Computing company. He will be offering his experience in starting his business, getting financing and navigating his way through Vancouver’s entrepreneurship scene. He’ll close with his insights on how Vancouver has transitioned over the last several years into a technology entrepreneurship hub. The night will conclude with a question-answer period followed by networking and drinks. Refreshments will be served.
