The Atlantic Venture Forum this year will feature a panel discussion on the hard-won lessons from two of the most prominent exits of the last year – the sales of Halifax-based companies Goalline and STI Technologies Ltd.

The AVF is a two-day conference that links investors inside and outside the region with some of Atlantic Canada’s leading startups or high-growth companies. It will take place June 27 and 28 at the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel. Tickets are available here.

The conference kicks off with an Entrepreneur Bootcamp on June 26 – just 10 days away – and the Propel ITC Demo Day on Monday evening.

One panel session this year will be a discussion with Tim Gillis, the CEO of STI, and Gord Dickie, the Founder and CEO of Goalline, about their exits.

“Get the inside scoop as these two entrepreneurs break down their respective journeys as they exited their companies,” said a promotion from Critical Path Group, the organizer of AVF. “Listen in and learn how to avoid some key problems, adapt during expansion, and prosper through hyper-growth as they forge their path towards a successful exit.”
