Vancouver Startup Week is an incredible gathering of entrepreneurs, developers, investors, and community leaders all coming together to celebrate one of the top tech hubs in the world. The city will be teeming with events, including presentations from some of the biggest names in the tech scene. 
  • Events have limited capacity and must be reserved independently. So don’t be a Lazy Larry - claim your spot today!
  • Is your event fully booked? - Have no fear, waitlist is here! Event entry for waitlisters opens 5 minutes prior to event start time. It’s worth trying, you’ll have a pretty good chance of getting in.
  • A word to the wise - Please show up for events at least 10 minutes prior to event start time. Unclaimed seats will be offered to waitlisters 5 minutes prior to start time.
  • Have your pass handy, as we will scan your QR code when you attend events. But remeber, this pass does not grant you access to the events unless you have signed up!
