HyperGrowth:Life

BC’s only cohort-based program for Health, Life Sciences, and Agritech companies.

HyperGrowth:Life is a cohort-based program designed to support healthtech, digital health, life sciences, agritech and other related companies that are commercialized, or nearing commercialization, to grow at hyper speed. By providing unprecedented access to senior leaders and resources, we help select companies land their first deals, develop scalable go-to-market plans, and achieve sustained growth.

Our Belief is Simple:
Connections + Expertise + Accountability = HyperGrowth

Building off the success of the original HyperGrowth program, HyperGrowth:Life is designed exclusively for companies in healthtech, life sciences and related industries. For 12 months, your team will experience an intensive program designed to drive revenue growth. Working with an advisory team of leading functional experts from Vancouver's tech industry, cohort companies will receive a level of support unlike anything available before.
