GROW conference kickoff party draws Vancouver's brightest entrepreneurs

Despite the rain and muggy temperature, last night’s official GROW conference kickoff party was a big hit. Various startups took over four Gastown venues to host their own “house party” with Canadian regional themes: Vancouver House (Brooklyn Lounge), Vancouver Island House (Lost & Found), Ontario House (Portside) and Atlantic House (Diamond). Party-hoppers collected stamps from each house for a chance to win a Parrot AR Quadricopter
