The Buzz Around Business Crowdfunding


Crowdfunding is one of the hottest topics in the entrepreneurial and finance communities right now. Join our panel of experts for their perspectives on where is it going and what are the benefits and risks to startup entrepreneurs, established corporations (both for-profit and non-profit), investors and communities.

Over the past seven years VIEA’s Economic Summit has become the “centre of business on Vancouver Island.” In October 2014, we will delve into even more session topics of great interest and relevance to our Island economy including Innovations in Wood Fibre, challenges, projections and opportunities for Waste Management, and Immigrant Entrepreneurs and our evolving business culture. We will also release the first year results of VI’s innovative Economic Gardening program.

Questions such has ‘How can we help grow (pun intended) the business of agriculture?’ ‘What do Treaty Settlements mean to the Island economy?’ and ‘What sort of product development is critical for attracting tourists?’ will be addressed in sixteen topical sessions.
