Pitching day

The GROW conference has brought dozens of high-profile VC’s and super-angels to Vancouver which presents a wonderful opportunity for many local start-ups to get exposure to out-of-town investors. So today is “pitching day” jointly organized by W Media Ventures and Bootup Labs. 7 companies will take the stage: CompassEngine (location-based gaming platform), EmpireAvenue (influence stock market), Fitbrains (casual brain fitness games), Indochino (tailor-made suits over the Internet), Rival Apps (fantasy sports games), Summify (social news reader) and Weddingful (lead-gen for wedding vertical).

We are extremely excited to have over 20 investors from more than 15 funds attending the event:

  • Shawn Abbott, iNovia
  • Chris Albinson, Panaroma Capital
  • Chris Arsenault, iNovia
  • Jonas Brandon, Rogers Ventures
  • Roger Chabra, Rho Canada
