Are you ready for ignition? You already have the fuel, and we want to give you the lighter! 

Venture Connection announces an expansion to its workshop series (formerly the Startup Seminar Series), which is now presented in partnership with VentureLabs.  Now known as the “Ignition Workshop Series”, this 10-part series is provided at no charge to attendees and is an incredible opportunity for students to learn about the vital building blocks of successful startups while engaging with other current and future entrepreneurs.  The Ignition Series is designed to build your toolkit as a founder or senior team member, and help you to lay the groundwork of a successful company. The workshops are targeted at helping to deal with the real day-to-day issues faced by teams in high-growth startups.

They provide material based on current, practical experience, which focuses on sustainability, execution, and results. The key points can be immediately applied to your startup, helping to successfully boost your growth rate. You will learn:

  • To optimize product market fit and business model
  • Product management to provide tangible 'value' for prime customers
  • To match your capital requirements with the right investors
  • Advanced web analytics and metrics to drive leads and conversion

The program also features guest speakers, including subject matter experts, industry veterans, and successful entrepreneurs, to share key domain knowledge.

The Ignition Workshop Series is presented free of charge through a partnership between SFU Venture Connection and VentureLabs. Support for the series is from Coast Capital Savings and the BCIC Accelerator Network, and it is produced and delivered by Rocket Builders. For more information on the series schedule and registration information, check out the Ignition Series Page on the SFU Venture Connection website.
