Scaling Up: Growing Multi-Million Dollar Companies in Vancouver

One of the biggest issues startups face is how to go from launch to a bigger, well-functioning business. Growing firms must have the ability to attract top talent and also have enough financing to get them through critical stages of their development. Learn from three experienced Canadian entrepreneurs who have navigated through the complexity of running, managing and growing a business.

Venture Connection in partnership with the Beedie School of Business will be holding “Scaling Up: Growing Multi-Million Dollar Companies in Vancouver” on Monday, December 12, 2016 at the Segal Graduate School of Business in downtown Vancouver. This event will include a panel discussion, showcasing Canadian entrepreneurs who have successfully grown and expanded their businesses. They will share the stories of their entrepreneurial journey; how they scaled up their business, the strategies they employed, and the challenges and successes they experienced along the way.
