In his work on startup communities Brad Feld talks about the startup or entrepreneurial “ecosystem.” In this ecosystem Feld identifies two key players: “leaders” and “feeders.” They each play important, but different, roles. When feeders support leaders, good things happen.

We’re always working to engage other “feeders” in and beyond the Comox Valley entrepreneurial ecosystem. Some are listed below. If your organization isn’t listed, and you provide services or supports to entrepreneurs, be in touch. You’re important to making shift happen on Vancouver Island!


The following membership based organizations offer other ways to meet and connect with business people.
