Entrepreneurs, Investors, Thinkers, and Influencers attending the Grow Conference at Vancouver Convention Center.

The Grow Conference took place Aug 19-21 at the Vancouver Convention. I didn’t attend any of the Conference sessions, as.I spent all day interviewing Grow Speakers, Organizers, and other Business people attending Grow. I interviewed ten of the events’ featured Speakers, several event sponsors, and organizer Debbie Landa.
