Today the GrowLab team is proud to officially welcome our Spring Cohort into the fold! Following the success of the inaugural Fall 2011 program, five new companies will join the growing GrowLab family in a three-month excursion that kicks off May 22nd.
Teams from around the world applied to join GrowLab to work on a widely diverse range of product and applications. “The quality of applications were really impressive.” said Mike Edwards, GrowLab’s new Executive Director. ”There are definitely some exciting things happening right now and the competition was intense. It was an extremely hard decision to narrow it down to the selected five.”
With guidance from the GrowLab Founders: Debbie Landa (Dealmaker Media); Jason Bailey (East Side Games); Boris Wertz (W Media Ventures); Len Brody (Clarity Digital Group) and their extensive network of mentors, companies will work towards an invitation-only Demo Day event. At this event (which we hope you’ll all attend!) our companies will pitch to an exclusive group of investors and kick off Vancouver’s 3rd annual Grow Conference. Stay tuned for tickets to the event, which takes place August 22-24.
In addition to the Demo Day event, GrowLab will be hosting an Accelerator Symposium that week in which Executive Directors from incubator and accelerator programs from across the globe will come together to discuss best practices employed to build thriving startup communies, foster entrepreneurial success and manage growth within our ever-changing ecosystem.
On to the companies!
