The 2021 Venture Showcase November 24th 

Across industries, landscapes and continents, UBC innovators are leading the charge creating solutions to some of the world’s most pressing challenges. From climate solutions and human health transformations to technological advancements and social impact, UBC is a rich bedrock of innovation home to entrepreneurs generating impacts through research and discoveries. Meet some of them at our 2021 Venture Showcase on November 24th!

Last year’s showcase welcomed 400 attendees including funders, industry partners, academic collaborators and community members to celebrate entrepreneurship and innovation. This year, we look forward to welcoming you once again to meet our thriving community of early-stage ventures leading the future of industries at our 2021 Venture Showcase

The 2021 Venture Showcase will feature ventures in three different categories: Ones-to-Watch from the incubation phase of entrepreneurship@UBC, Sneak-a-Peek, those who have begun commercializing their innovations, have demonstrated traction and will be looking to fundraise in 2022 and HATCH Ready-to-Raise at the acceleration stage, have market traction and are currently raising, or will be raising, in the Spring of 2022.

 About the Venture Showcase

entrepreneurship@UBC’s Venture Showcase event will give our UBC ecosystem, investors, government and other industry organizations the ability to keep their thumb on the pulse of the next big thing, while providing our ventures with the exposure and opportunity to learn more about the funding landscape. Bringing our community together to learn, network and celebrate is what our 2021 Venture Showcase is all about.

This event is open to everyone, and entrepreneurship@UBC ventures will be selected to present based on readiness criteria as determined by entrepreneurship@UBC’s Program Leads, Lead Entrepreneur in Residence, Head of Venture Growth Strategy and Lead of the Social Venture Studio. 



About HATCH 

*HATCH is made possible through a collaboration with the Institute for Computing, Information and Cognitive Systems (ICICS). Some ventures in the HATCH Ready-to-Raise category are pre-HATCH but have demonstrated fundraising readiness and are therefore included in this category.
