It’s that time of the year again — a time where entrepreneurs, investors, community leaders, government stakeholders, companies both small and large, local and global, come together to celebrate Vancouver’s vibrant startup community. Jam-packed into one week of exciting events happening all around the city, whether it be a hackathon, fintech discussion, or ping pong and puppies - there’s bound to be something to pique everyone’s interest.
Vancouver Startup Week (VSW) is only one of the many celebrations worldwide — but since its inception two years ago, VSW has evolved into an event that hosted over 3000 participants across 80 events in 2015. Without a central body organizing the event, VSW is instead powered by dozens of community partners who are passionate and involved with the startup space. This year’s theme is all about “Connecting Vancouver to the World”. As a global identity verification service, Trulioo had to get involved!
Our GM, Zac Cohen, will be participating in a panel discussion on Tuesday, September 27, from 1PM – 3PM on the topic of “Disrupting Giants: Lessons from Vancouver Fintech”. Hosted by Progressa, the event will let attendees get into the minds of expert representatives from Progressa, Conconi Growth Partners, Wealthbar, and Trulioo to learn about tips and advice on how they’re giving banks and traditional financial institutions a run for their money. This is a great opportunity for inspiring “giant fighters” to really pick the brains of seasoned veterans.
On Friday, September 30, from 11AM – 12PM, Slobodan Kuzmanovic, Trulioo’s VP of Technology, will also be on a panel about “Security and Authentication Future 2017 and Beyond”. With data breaches amounting to massive losses and information leaks, the topic is relevant for all businesses looking to keep up with the increasing threat, while maintaining costs and agility in the deployment of new technologies.
To wrap it all up, Trulioo will have a booth showcasing our identity verification product, GlobalGateway, at the closing party happening at Science World. Get a glimpse of our product and learn about our latest features and partnerships! The rest of the event will consist of some networking over snacks, a fireside chat, some presentations and a company showcase. Don’t miss out, the official closing is bound to go off with a bang!
