Who Should Attend

Founders Network creates intimate, founder-only events regularly in Vancouver. This event is designed to bring tech founders together to learn from one another’s pitch, receive valuable insights from VCs, and share their stories. We value authenticity, humility, reciprocity and inclusivity and strive to reflect these values in both our events and the founders and VCs selected to attend.

Why You Should RSVP

Founding a company is a grind and can often feel like a lonely journey. We want to fix that. If you’re looking to build a network of founders to support and guide you on your journey to success, sign up for the event and experience the benefits of Founders Network.
