The startup culture in Vancouver is not only thriving, it’s growing. It’s become a trend of it’s own that inspires, and encourages everyone to join in. People who move to the city see and experience this first hand, and realize that when surrounded by the energy here, there isn’t anything they can’t do. The world is your oyster in Vancouver, but how did that come to be? Why is Vancouver such a hot-bed of self employed creatives?
As part of an ongoing series, we’ll be meeting and interviewing creative entrepreneurs in Vancouver to see how and why they think this has happened, how they’ve benefited from it, and what makes them tick as an entrepreneur; we want to know, “Why Vancouver”.
Part of the beauty of doing your own thing in Vancouver, is that if you want to mix the best of two worlds ("regular" 9-5 jobs AND freelance gigs), well you can! The majority of our creative community is made up folks just like todays interviewee Chelsea, merging multiple jobs to fulfill income and passion needs.
