2016 was a busy year at Spring. We grew from two to six full-time team members — with international backgrounds from Dubai, London, and Kuala Lumpur. Over 300+ alumni have gone through our programs, 200+ companies started over 13 different industries, 150+ jobs created, and $5.5M funding raised. In April 2016, we acquired Kick Incubator and set our sights on international expansion and became a global startup school for entrepreneurs. We’re currently in 30+ cities around the world with the goal of reaching 45+ cities by the end of 2017.
We couldn’t have come so far without the support of our alumni, sponsors, investors, mentors, community partners, City Partners, and everyone else in between. It takes a village to raise a baby and for us, we believe it takes a village to raise a business. Together with the great folks from Vancity, Smythe LLP, Dentons, RBC, Futurpreneur and many others, we believe we can change the world through entrepreneurship.
Wherever you are on your entrepreneurial journey.
We’re here for you.
