The results are in! Meet the 14 ventures ‘Ready-to-Raise’ at the 2022 Investor Showcase
After much anticipation, we are excited to announce the 14 ventures taking the stage May 10 at the 2022 Investor Showcase presented by entrepreneurship@UBC and ICICS.
This year saw a record number of applications, up 36% from last year, making it a highly competitive process. To help make the final decision, we called on the expertise of our esteemed Evaluation Panel: Darrel Kopke, Director of Creative Destruction Lab, Thealzel Lee, Founder, Director and President of VANTEC and General Partner at Archangel Phoenix Angel Fire and Maria Pacella, Managing Partner of Pender Ventures. Leveraging entrepreneurship@UBC’s 4 T’s model: Team, Tech, Treasury, and Traction, the panel helped us evaluate our semi-finalists to decide who would move to the final event at UBC Robson Square May 10.
The results are in, and these 14 ventures who are ‘Ready-to-Raise’ Seed to Series A rounds are making waves across industries, solving problems around climate solutions and social impact to human health and advanced technologies.
