We went out to the beautiful city of Vancouver, BC last week for the long-awaited GROW Conference.
The second annual event was one of the largest gatherings of technology entrepreneurs, investors and followers in the country. I took part for the second time, while Andrew and Evan joined for the first time.
We captured a lot of notes from the week’s content, which you can find in our notebook on Rocketr. It’s been pretty useful to have multiple people in the room add in, as well as having the notes to refer back to now.
We were excited to also see Rocketr pitch on stage, after it was selected as one of the top 4 startups from the top 15 at launch party - the only one outside of BC! The team rolled out a brand new iPhone application (more to come on this), which we saw a ton of feedback, downloads and ideas for.
I spent time in the city through Gastown, Yaletown, Coal Harbour and Financial District, while connecting with good folks from Ottawa, Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver, and even here in Toronto.
There’s an unmistakable energy in the room when you have that many really interesting, hard-working and fun people together from across the country. Andrew, Evan and I really valued being a part of it all.
If you attended, let us know your feedback.
