Vancouver Startup Community, Mentorship and Events

Founders Network’s mission in Vancouver is connecting its Founders and startups with a global support network. Based in Silicon Valley, Founders Network provides Vancouver the ability to access resources only available in the tech capital of the world. We’re a mentorship program that stands behind our Vancouver members.


Learn, Network, and Engage with entrepreneurs in Vancouver

The startup scene in Vancouver has taken over the historic area of Gastown. With almost 40% of the downtown real estate being taken over by tech companies, the city is literally being consumed by the movement. Startup Genome’s Report (2018) has named Vancouver the #15 startup ecosystem in the world. With Canada’s supportive immigration policy and its recent rise on the startup list, Vancouver has earned the title Silicon Valley North.
