I have often said that Edmonton is full of inventors, but lacks entrepreneurs. I haven’t seen an organization or group in Alberta that understands the approach of building these scalable companies like Startup Edmonton. It has been impressive to see what Ken and Cam have done growing a quality startup community from scratch.
