(A Discovery Foundation Inclusive Pipeline Catalyst Program) 
Presented by Coast Capital Savings Venture Connection and hosted by Borden Ladner Gervais LLP

Growing a company from zero to $100 million in Canada isn’t an easy feat, but growing more of these companies is an ambitious goal in Canada's new Innovation Agenda. However, there are great examples to learn from in our own backyard, and they are willing to share!
In this panel, founders will share their stories of scaling to become hundred-million dollar businesses and provide expert insight on harnessing the uniqueness of the West Coast for growth, and what else needs to be done. Not only will they share with the audience, but a limited number of guests will also be able to sign up for short mentoring sessions with the panelists. More information can be found closer to the date. 


Capacity: 75
