September 13th, 2011- Francois Roux, founder and CEO @ 2Vancouver.com talks to CBC / Radio-Canada about the support they have received through the UBC incubator.
The program is a campus wide initiative led by the Sauder School of Business, the Faculty of Applied Science, the Faculty of Science and the University Industry Liaison Office. It is supported by the Faculty of Arts and all the student entrepreneurship clubs on campus.
Anchoring this initiative is a $10 million venture fund: the “entrepreneurship@UBC Fund”. Capitalized by donations from alumni and matching contributions from the BC Innovation Council, the Fund has been formed by UBC in order to make very early stage pre-seed investments in start-ups founded by students or recent alumni.
"This program is a very exciting opportunity for us. We have been provided with an open office on UBC campus, a mentor and a contribution of $5,000 in business services. We make new connections every week and the work environment is extremely motivating," says Francois Roux, the founder of 2Vancouver.com.
