As part of the final We Are the City closing reception at the Unlikely Allies Festival, the Vancouver Economic Commission will be leading an Allies Auction.

The Allies Auction provides one last chance to connect with unlikely allies by pitching-for-partners that care about your mission.


Two 20 minute emceed sessions will host a total of 30 pitches from entreprenuers and innovators from the Unlikely Allies Festival.

Each participant gets 60 seconds to pitch their venture and make an ask. We suggest the format of

  • Problem you’re trying to solve,

  • How you’re tackling the challenge

  • Up to 3 asks

Interested to pitch?
Sign ups are limited to 30 spaces however all attnedees will recieve an oppotrunity to apply at the festival lobby during your registration at Impact Hub Seattle. 

More Information:
Although companies are welcome to mention that they are actively fundraising, we are asking each impact venture to make at least one ask that can be solved on site. For example, “I am looking for a connection with the City of Barcelona” or “I am looking for help building a digital tool to manage our community”.

At the end of each pitch, the audience throws up their hand if they can help with one of the asks. Staff and partners from the Vancouver contingent will collect business cards (or otherwise record) those that want to connect with a participant, and at the end of the 20 minute session pitch-participants get the chance to connect with the unlikely allies that have offered to help.
