Vancouver’s startup community and technology sector is thriving. There are now over 80,000 technology jobs in Vancouver and that number’s only growing. Technology companies, large and small, have become a critical part of Vancouver’s economy.

With big brands like Hootsuite and Mobify, to MDM graduate startups V7 Entertainment and 8 Leaf Digital Productions, Vancouver is becoming recognized as an important player in the international tech scene.

The investment environment has changed – venture funds are now run by former entrepreneurs and there’s a whole new breed of venture firms that are taking a serious look at Vancouver, dubbed “Silicon Valley North.”

Grow Inc., produced by TELUS Optik Local, is a documentary that highlights Vancouver’s growing startup community. With interviews from startups, entrepreneurs and investors, the film highlights why Vancouver is fast becoming a hot startup ecosystem.
