Plus, VTJ Live registration is now open, and you won't want to miss it.
Welcome to the Midweek Memo: your weekly digest of the city’s top tech events, personnel moves, job openings, and industry opportunities.
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? Do unicorns still matter? (Did they ever?) Is early-stage the only area where investment dollars are flowing freely? What should entrepreneurs know about the capital landscape right now?
WeWork Vancouver is co-hosting this event with Vancouver Tech Journal as part of Small Business Week.
