Innovate Edmonton

In 2014, Startup Edmonton was acquired by Edmonton Economic Development Corporation (EEDC) and is part of the Innovate Edmonton division.

Innovate Edmonton, a division of EEDC, supports our city’s most driven tech-sector entrepreneurs and visionaries. The division’s purpose is to help founders and their teams bring ground-breaking ideas to market – whether as a startup or a high-potential scaleup – by bringing together the right people, resources and funding. For more information, visit edmonton.com/innovate.

Before founding Granify, I was CEO of two other technology companies between 2002 and 2008. The level of readily available support for startup and growth stage entrepreneurs is truly night and day between then and now. Startup Edmonton has been the major driver of this change.”
— Jeff Lawrence, Founder/CEO, Granify
