Brand Battle for Good
The Brand Battle for Good is a two-part hybrid event calling brand teams from across Vancouver to strategize on tackling pressing social and environmental issues in our city. We bring together Vancouver’s top brands and creative thinkers, innovators and disruptors to compete head-to-head to make our city better.
The Spark Factor
Through the Spark Factor, we aim to support youth in their learning and skill-building journey. Participants meet with big-name brands and industry-best product marketers and leave the session portfolio-ready with a prototype design of their very own.
From tackling the challenge of plastic waste in Vancouver to helping local businesses weather the early days of the pandemic, volunteers and local brands have been busy creating impact.
Brands for Better events and initiatives are 100% volunteer and sponsor-driven. More hands are always helpful, and everyone is welcome.
