Each spring entrepreneurship@UBC brings together UBC’s venture and investor community to create connections and build networks at their Investor Showcase.
Designed to feature the later-stage ventures from their community that are fundraising, the Investor Showcase highlights ventures leading their industries, demonstrating the progress being made through research and innovation and the potential for early-stage ventures to solve global issues across climate, human health, social impact and more.
As part of the Investor Showcase, ventures went through a rigorous application process, detailing their 4Ts: team, tech, traction and treasury, a made at e@UBC, for e@UBC framework, as well as the impact of their venture solution.
