Netcoins at "TriCelerate" Entrepreneurs Meetup

The Netcoins team attended a January 27 meetup of entrepreneurs and startups, hosted by TriCelerate. The evening "really highlighted the vibrant startup community that is based out of the Vancouver suburbs," said Michael Vogel, CEO of Netcoins.

Netcoins joined TriCelerate as a community member in 2014, and will be helping to establish a local accelerator in Coquitlam, British Columbia (20 minutes from downtown Vancouver).

The evening also introduced a joint effort with another Vancouver accelerator, Spring Activator, which will be hosting a local flavour of the "KICK" program for startups.
