Learn about key issues within the industry, networking with industry leaders and experts and hear from world-class professionals in the investment community.

Since its inception in 1997, Banff Venture Forum has realized significant growth in all respects, with last year’s Forum hosting in excess of 40 venture capital firms, 50+ presenting companies and 350 delegates.
