We had some awesome conferences last week from Lean Startup to Make Web Not War! Hope you all had a chance to check them out!
BCIC has also started a forum to hear from the local tech community! So make sure to add your voice here.
This week, come check out MoMoVan and meet the new DigiBC president, as well as an awesome talk on startup legal 101 @ Bootup HQ with my good friend and co-founder of Contractual.ly, Martin Ertl!
Also, on Friday the Northern Voice conference for bloggers starts, and Thursday is the 5th New Ventures BC series on “Managing Your Intellectual Property” – The tickets are free for students or StartupDigest has also received a 30% discount code: “vanstartup”.
And finally, if you’re startup in need of a mentor, my good friend Jimmy Ho is putting a charity event together that could bring out Danny Robinson, Thealzel Lee, tentatively Mike Volker, and many others. He’s also offering a 50% discount for StartupDigest readers so use the code “SD0511″ here if you’re interested.
‘Til next week!
