UBC is home to a thriving community of entrepreneurs creating groundbreaking impact through research and innovation. As one of the top 40 research universities in the world, UBC attracts global leaders who are leveraging their insights and discoveries to solve some of the most pressing problems we are facing today across climate, human health, and social impact. Meet them at the Venture Showcase!

Last year we welcomed 350 attendees including funders, industry partners, academic collaborators and community members: Join us November 23 for the 2022 Venture Showcase to meet entrepreneurs from our community who are set to be the next generation of leaders in impact and innovation.

 The Venture Showcase features teams across our pipeline ranging from up and coming ‘Ones-to-Watch’ teams at the outset of their journeys in incubation, ‘Sneak-a-Peek’ ventures  who are in the middle of commercialization and ‘Ready-to-Raise' teams gaining traction at the acceleration stage. Presenting ventures will have booths to connect with our audience before and after the event, demoing their solutions and impact. The Showcase will give you a preview of our entire community, connecting you with venture teams and our wider innovation network. RSVP today


Meet the teams presenting 

This event will happen November 23 in person at UBC Robson Square and online via live stream.
