"A strong startup community is more than founders and investors; it's forged from friendships solidified over a desire to solve problems together. Edmonton Startup Week wouldn’t be possible without the dedication of community leaders that live the hacker way day-in-and-day out: running meetups; mentoring students and leading workshops; building companies, failing and starting again," says Ken Bautista, CEO and Co-Founder of Startup Edmonton.
