We had so much fun last week at Startup World in Vancouver, B.C., we decided we had to go back and get to know this town’s awesome startup community a little better. Next week we’ll be joining over 1200 entrepreneurs and developers from around North America (and around the world) for the 2nd annual GROW Conference.
GROW Conference is Canada’s leading tech conference, highlighting the intersection of design and entrepreneurial thinking. The event expects to bring in over 1,200 for its 4th annual event August 14 to 16th, 2013 in Vancouver. GROW 2013 focuses on the future of businesses, connecting entrepreneurs to potential investors, co-founders and mentors.
We created the GROW conference to help entrepreneurs build the next billion dollar company. GROW is about the future of innovation, growth and entrepreneurship. It is a curated environment that brings together technology pioneers, founders, executives, influencers and investors who are passionate about identifying problems worth solving.
Tropo is happy to be sponsoring the Startup Smackdown, where select companies will step into the boxing ring throughout the day to pitch their companies to VC and press judge panels. The teams of judges will score the presenters on their 1-minute pitch and then debate their numbers.
Our Chief Evangelist and Piano Dueler, Johnny Diggz, will be on board Geeks on a Train, traveling from Portland through Seattle and on to Vancouver. And who knows, you might even catch him playing the piano during the Smack Down.
