“We believe Vancouver is a place that offers an exciting environment for growth-oriented companies.”
– Sean Elbe, Vancouver Economic Commission.

According to Elbe, the Vancouver Olympics inspired the city’s entrepreneurship community to think on a more global scale. Now, Vancouver is a leader in areas like FinTech, quantum computing and green technology.

In this episode of the Startup Canada Podcast, host Rivers Corbett talks to Elbe about support for growth-oriented startups in Vancouver and the city’s amazing success stories.
