Alison McMahon and Sherman Tsang, Co-Founders of TwoFold, are active members of our startup community. They're often first in line to welcome new faces at member coffee and socials. It's more than fitting considering Alison and Sherman met at a meetup held at the Startup Edmonton campus and are wonderful examples of creative collisions in action.
We sat down with Alison to chat about TwoFold and their Startup Edmonton experiences.

With fall just around the corner, it's time for us to say goodbye to the great teams we welcomed to campus for the Student Summer Accelerator Program. Teams of four joined us for 14 weeks of intensive programming focused on developing their tech-enabled products. The students went through the Preflight series, participated in weekly mentorship sessions and pitched their companies at a practice demo day.
We look forward to working with students this year! Stay tuned to starupedmonton.com/students for updates.
We sat down with Carl Charest, Program Coordinator, to chat about his experience with the students this summer.
Startup Edmonton is a place for creative collisions. Recently, we welcomed artist Brandon Bilhete to the space to work on a new chalk wall mural for the social space. After nearly a year to enjoy Jose Macasinag's Startup City illustration, Brandon was tasked with the massive theme of technology through the ages. We think he did a fantastic job!
We’re thrilled to bring HackLab to K-Days! From July 17 - 26 kids of all ages can join us for experimentation with littleBits, Sphero and Lego as they explore opportunities in science, technology and engineering.
We’re looking for a Volunteer Liaison to assist at HackLab powered by Startup Edmonton at K-Days.
