Each year, 15 Top Tech Start-ups are selected take part.
Metabridge is a non-profit organization founded in 2008 that supports the tech Start-up eco-system.
What started as a 1 day, 30 person event is now a 2 day international tech retreat that showcases growth stage tech companies and connects them with a curated group of Silicon Valley organizations, to help take these companies to the next stage.
We host collaborative networking programs for the Top 15 cohort, giving access over 48 hours to mentors, advisors and investors at our flagship Tech Retreat in Kelowna, BC, ultimately taking them one step closer to a successful exit.
"I've never had so many meaningful conversations in such a short period of time, with influential people that can help push RentMoola forward .My advice for anyone who is thinking of applying for Metabridge next year 'definitely do it!”' Andrew McLeod, CSO, RentMoola, Metabridge Winner 2016
"It's different from a lot of other events in that it’s a very small VIP group, and you have untethered access for 48 hours. Metabridge is a phenomenal opportunity for you to network and grab attention from the Valley" Sean Kerklaan, CEO, Fatigue Science, Metabridge Winner 2015
Betakit: "At Metabridge, relationships matter more than ideas", June 17, 2016.
Metabridge is about building relationships to help grow your business.
MediaCore, SqueezeCMM and Hurrier all have something in common. They have all been acquired and they all attended Metabridge as a Top Start-Up. We have seen 10 of our cohort of companies be acquired since we launched. If you are one of the best and brightest growth stage founders, and are looking to follow their lead, then you should apply when registration opens again in early 2017.
"It’s not about pitching on stage and getting VCs to write you cheques, it’s about building up your network and finding people that will support you and your business.” Steve Wandler, Metabridge Founder
Metabridge is by invitation only, ensuring maximum value and exposure for the companies that earn a place into the program. You can apply for a place as a Top Start-up, attend as an invited VIP mentor or alternatively we have sponsorship opportunities for those wanting to be involved and support the tech start-up eco-system.
