Upcoming Events

The Leap Venture Academy connects pet care entrepreneurs with key resources in order to foster innovation and development in the rapidly growing pet care industry.


The Academy is a series of pre-accelerator and community-building activities for early stage pet care startups and innovators. Activities include bootcamps, classes, webinars, meetups and hackathons. Events are held year round, in person and online. Our goal is to engage with startups and connect them to educational and networking opportunities, advisers, partners, and investors.


Events are free and open to the public. Have an idea for an event? Send us a suggestion.
