Last week, Kevin and I attended the Vancouver Startup Week ( https://vanstartupweek.ca/ ) and it was definitely an eye-opener. If you live around the Vancouver, BC area, I highly recommend this week-long conference. We met many like-minded people, pitched our idea and got valuable feedback. Since we live about a one hour from downtown Vancouver, we didn’t realize that there was a growing and hustling startup culture in downtown Vancouver. We saw a couple of competitors in our space and we also met a lot of potential employees. We were able to get our tickets at a discounted rate since we bought them early. We only paid $99 and it was well worth it.
