“Pollinate directly contributed to the success of one of our highest profile projects. Through a connection at Pollinate, I was able to push through one of the largest roadblocks on the engagement. We were stuck on how to solve a critical hardware problem in a mining context and lacked the relationships and niche experience to develop the best solution for the client. At an event hosted by Pollinate I met an individual who worked at a leading provider of mining hardware that not only provided guidance on an optimal solution, but initiated a contact with a supplier who could deliver the end product. I am certain that we would not have achieved such a robust and optimized solution without the expertise of the Pollinate-developed relationship.”
"Events have helped me decipher technology and business buzzwords; I can now apply this understanding to my job and look to address emerging trends and opportunities within my industry. Through Pollinate I’ve connected with great people, from a range of sectors and functions, who all have the drive to develop and make a positive difference in the local community!"
"Hosting a Pollinate Event at Canucks Sports & Entertainment was an incredible way for us to engage top young professionals in the City and also help broaden the networks of our own young talent. We were very impressed with the quality and depth of discussion and overall engagement of attendees."
"Pollinate provides a network for like-minded young professional leaders who share a passion for innovation and technology. Through this network, I've personally met some high calibre individuals and was given exposure to top companies in our city."
“The Pollinate Young Professionals Group has been a great platform to expand my network in Vancouver with other young business leaders! It has also created the opportunity to bring in a new audience of engaged professionals for hands on learning with our Microsoft products.”
"I have really enjoyed learning about how other organizations tackle business problems/ opportunities. I especially enjoyed our Data and Analytics session with the Canucks organization, where we explored the power of data to solve business challenges."
"Joining Pollinate has been amazing experience - both through learning about new technologies & industries, and for meeting a diverse range of ambitious, talented emerging leaders. I’ve been fortunate to become more involved in the network as Head of Social Media where I’ve developed a great number of skills, and am excited to be part of such a growing, rapidly evolving network."
"From our various business and networking events, Pollinate has significantly expanded not only my network, but my knowledge in emerging tech. The driven and successful individuals I've met here are an inspiration and they constantly push me to improve myself. If you're looking for like-minded ambitious young professionals, I highly recommend joining Pollinate."
"Pollinate is proof that building a professional network doesn't need to feel like work - since meeting at my first pollinate event several of us get together for sporting events and experience all that Vancouver has to offer!"
"Connecting with ambitious young professionals has not only inspired me to work harder, but also provided support when I’ve encountered hurdles that I would like feedback on."
"Pollinate is easily one of the highest quality networking groups I've found. While I find my time increasingly limited, Pollinate is something that I have no intention of ever cutting out of my schedule. The caliber of attendees is excellent, as is the quality of the content at each event. I would highly recommend this group to anyone."
