VEF hold an 'Employment Standards Act Consultation'.

Primary Objective:
To understand the issues faced by entrepreneurial startups with regards to recruitment and management of people, and how public policy affects it.  Despite being home to some of the best creative and entrepreneurial talent in the word, job creation in the creative and innovation sector in BC is quite low.  This discussion will aim to explore policy measures that can positively contribute to the creation of green, sustainable, white-collar jobs in BC.

Secondary Objective:
To facilitate the forging of ties between the innovation and the political community in British Columbia.  The world's most thriving innovation clusters all arose out of strong bonds between the innovation and political sectors of the area.  The first step to emulate that success in BC is to establish dialogue between the two sectors.

Participants include:

Eric Diep, Founder of A Thinking Ape
Michael Fergusson, CEO of Ayogo
Patrick Rooney, CEO of Navarik
Eesmyal Santos-Brault, Principal of Recollective Thinking
Dave Thomas, Partner of Rocket Builders
Jason Smith, President (former) of Vision Critical
Tim Swanson, Chair of Vancouver Enterprise Forum
Matt Toner, MLA Candidate for False-Creek NDP
Shame Simpson, MLA for Vancouver-Hastings NDP
Paul Buck, CFO of Stemcell Technologies
