October Update

OCTOBER UPDATE

Edmonton Startup Week 2016 is just around the corner! We're super excited to see you at any (or all) of the 20+ events taking place next week. From Linda's Snapchat Workshop to Pub Trivia Night - Startup Edition, Launch Party 7 to an Artificial Intelligence seminar, Edmonton Startup Week really does have something for everyone. 

RSVP by checking on the round circles on Sched. This is the best way to claim your spot, especially at events that are filling up quickly. 

This month, we're also hosting Canada's technology hubs as the Canadian Digital Media Network (CDMN) hosts its annual summit at Startup Edmonton. We're proud to have so many alumni companies participate in CDMN programs, like Soft Landing and Get There. 

October is full of lots of great meetups and programs. Be sure to pick up a Commons Membership at any of the Startup Week events. Your membership includes a workshop of your choice, great discounts with our partners, and invitations to member events.
