Explore Vancouver’s startup community as we dive into three (yup, three!) different offices. This is the perfect chance to take a look at the day-to-day life of entrepreneurs, project managers, developers, designers, and everything in between. Whether it’s sitting in on the daily scrum or participating in an open panel with the C-suite, Startup Crawl is going to connect you directly with the people that drive innovation in their respective industries.
Oh, and while we do love you all, only 20 can attend, so be keen on those tickets!
Eventbase, the world’s most trusted event app platform, enhances the attendee experience with its feature-rich, location-aware, native app. Even if you’ve never heard of them, chances are you’ve used their apps. When Obama keynoted SXSW, when the Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justic trailer debuted at Comic-Con, and when Usain Bolt won gold at the London 2012 Olympics, Eventbase technology (and staff) were there. This growing company has even worked on film festival apps for Sundance and Tribeca, not to mention tech for some of the largest conferences in the world like those for HP, IBM, Microsoft, SAP and Cisco.
Axiom Zen, simply put, Axiom Zen is the startup that builds startups. Since 2013, Axiom Zen has quickly grown to be one of the most innovative startups in the scene. They're the parents to projects like ZenHub, a platform for developers to share and store open source code, Axiom Zen, which labels itself as an “innovation studio,” is one of a new breed of company, more akin to incubators—organizations that support entrepreneurial ventures as they grow from concept to a going concern—than traditional businesses. Twenty-nine-year-old Gharegozlou didn’t have a product to rally around when he walked away from his work with Silicon Valley venture capital firms to start Axiom Zen in Vancouver in 2013. Instead, he assembled a team of tech-savvy individuals and tasked them with thinking up big ideas, which are then developed into products and eventually spun out as separate businesses. This company-building-companies structure also lends itself well to helping large corporations behave like startups while at the same time giving smaller businesses access to resources only available to larger firms. In this capacity, Axiom Zen does everything from developing software to building innovation practices within its organizations.
