🏙️ Crunching the numbers

Plus, discover how companies managed the "great resignation", and how new legislation is impacting salaries.

Welcome to the Midweek Memo: your weekly digest of the city’s top tech events, personnel moves, job openings, and industry opportunities.

  • For the first time as a headliner in Vancouver, we’re bringing Sahil Bloom (and special guest Andrew Wilkinson) to our city.

  • Bloom owns SRB Holdings, a holding company currently comprising seven cash-flowing businesses, and he’s the managing partner of SRB Ventures, a $10 million venture investment firm committed to funding and accelerating the most compelling startups in the world.

  • He’ll offer you strategies for scaling businesses, escaping from the daily grind, and leveraging frameworks to live a healthier, wealthier life.

  • ​Cash bar. Light appetizers will be provided.

  • You’re invited to join us every Tuesday between 8:00 and 10:00 a.m. to connect with the Vancouver tech community in an informal atmosphere. Discover a new career, find your next co-founder, or learn something new!

  • Connect and catch up with fellow executives and dive deep into the issues that matter for your company's growth and resilience.

  • 2023 has shaped up to be a year like no other — how are top early- and growth-stage VC firms navigating the unfavourable economic climate?

  • Hear from:

  • In the past 18 months, the tech industry experienced an extreme swing from the "great resignation" and a struggle to retain talent to a cooling period, with many companies forced to take cost-cutting measures.
