BDC Square Vancouver: a new networking space for entrepreneurs to make powerful connections

Vancouver, December 5, 2023 — BDC, Canada’s bank for entrepreneurs, is officially opening its third BDC Square, a collaborative space for entrepreneurs located in downtown Vancouver. Following the success of similar spaces in Montreal and Toronto, Vancouver’s BDC Square is now available to host events for small and medium-sized businesses—enabling them to make powerful connections with peers, clients and BDC employees.

“Peer-to-peer connections can go a long way in developing entrepreneurial skills and building a strong business community,” said Jean-Philippe Ménard, Senior Vice President, British Columbia and North, BDC. “I am proud we are offering a space that will bring this community together, fostering more collaboration, and ultimately driving B.C.’s economy forward.”

Vancouver’s BDC Square is in The Stack, a Zero-Carbon and visually striking high-rise in the centre of Vancouver’s business district. Entrepreneurs are at the very heart of what BDC stands for, and so the bank created a space just for them, to network, learn and share ideas.

BDC Squares in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver all aim to showcase the Canadian entrepreneurial ecosystem—and to encourage collaboration and peer-to-peer learning amongst entrepreneurs. The multifunctional spaces are open Monday to Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and have a capacity to host events for up to 125 attendees.
