Creative Destruction Lab opens second accelerator in Vancouver

Tech Vibes featured CDL-West, a new accelerator program from UBC’s Sauder School of Business.

The program is Western Canada’s version of the Creative Destruction Lab, a seed-stage program based at University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management.

“CDL-West will provide a much-needed support system to ensure innovations formulated on British Columbia campuses can access the funding they need to scale up and grow in-province,” said Robert Helsley, Dean of the UBC Sauder School of Business.

The inaugural program will call for applications in October and the program will begin in January.

City Television also featured CDL-West. The segment begins at 2:32.
