Vancouver Startup Ecosystem
Canada’s west coast attracts tech talent from around the world. It’s not just the big tech companies like Slack, Facebook and Hootsuite drawing talent to the city; the number of startups is steadily growing. Vancouver’s relative closeness to Seattle and Silicon Valley makes it easy for talent to move between cities.
The cost of doing business in Vancouver is significantly less than in the US, which is another attractive reason to launch your startup there. According to current estimates, there are nearly 10,000 startups in Vancouver.
A $100 million fund for startups from the B.C government helped boost the growth of the scene in the city over the past decade. Canada also has plenty of other government funds and tax incentives for innovation and R&D. Innovation Canada is a useful initiative that helps founders find the resources they need to scale.
Vancouver has great infrastructure for entrepreneurs with numerous organizations that connect them to investors and dozens of coworking and collaboration spaces to meet others in the scene.
Sustainability and green energy startups are two of the fastest-growing sectors in Vancouver. One of the most significant companies to come out of Vancouver recently is the AI-enabled competitor analysis platform Klue which raised $62 million at the end of 2021.

GrowthMentor was built upon the idea that every situation is unique, so generic courses and blog posts just don’t cut it sometimes.
To actually solve your issue you need to connect with someone who’s “been there done that” and have a back-and-forth conversation about the particular roadblock you are facing at this very moment.
Here are some tips.
- Come into this with realistic expectations. They’re mentors, not magicians.
- Ask your mentor if they’d be ok with you recording your screen with Loom
- Give contextual information to help paint the picture of your current situation.
- Growth mentors will be asking you lots of questions, answer them as openly as possible.
- Don’t be afraid to push the boundaries of question-asking.
- Be inquisitive. Stories are gold.
- Don’t feel pressure, just relax.
- Try to form mental patterns, especially if you speak with multiple mentors.
- Embrace alternative views. Ask the mentors to challenge your assumptions.
- Be friendly. If you’re likable, the mentors will be your biggest supporters (even after the call is over).
Use dynamic filters to find the perfect mentor for you with the right expertise, language, time zone, and availability you need.
