GrowLab has announced a new opportunity for entrepreneurs in the startup lifecycle. The GrowLab Farm Team provides guidance and mentorship to talented entrepreneurs who are not yet ready for an accelerator program. Selected companies receive funding, office space, and access to GrowLab’s four founding partners over the course of 6 months. Three local companies (described below) are currently taking part in the first Farm Team session.
GrowLab’s Farm Team fits snugly in the gap that some entrepreneurs would experience between ideation and experimentation, and being venture-capital ready. Along with Launch Academy’s reaction chamber for startups and GrowLab’s Startup Accelerator program GrowLab’s Executive Director Mike Edwards believes that “Vancouver can support startups every step of the way.”
