As Edmonton Startup Week's flagship event, Launch Party gives you the opportunity to meet our city's brightest entrepreneurs, try their products, and celebrate everything that our startup community has to offer. Since 2010, more than 95 technology companies have launched products at the event, including rapidly growing teams like ZEPT, Jobber, Drivewyze, Poppy Barley, and Showbie.
And Launch Party isn't the only thing at Startup Week. Last year, the community was a massive part of making the 2018 Startup Week our biggest yet with more than 50 partners hosting 60+ events for 2,000+ of Edmonton's most engaged community and city builders. This year could be even bigger, and you can help.
There are three great ways to get started:
We encourage all Edmonton-based tech companies with a new product to apply! You do not need to be in a Startup Edmonton program to qualify for Launch Party. If selected, there is no cost to participate. We do require you to adhere to set of deadlines, pre-event meetings, and access to information about your company.
Apply today to host an event at Edmonton Startup Week. Our Operations Manager, Lauren Briske, will be in touch shortly with a few questions to move your application forward. Accepted events receive a welcome package, top tips & tricks for hosting an awesome event, and supports to help spread the word.
Launch Party isn't your typical networking event or trade show. It's a party designed to celebrate and showcase the rockstar entrepreneurs in our community. Drinks, DJs, and great company all await you at Launch Party!
We'll have many updates in the months to come!
We can't wait to welcome even more people to join us in celebrating our city's unique entrepreneurial identity, startup community, and culture of innovation.
