Launch Party Vancouver 1-9 in Photos

At our first LPV in September 2007, we had 120 attendees and a handful of startups and at LPV9, we had 9 amazing companies and over 500 people in the room.  To me, this just proves Vancouver is for Startups and our community is growing.  Here’s a snapshot of LPV over the years.
