September is one of my favourite months at Startup Edmonton because so many of our Student Members return to campus. We launched a brand-new home for students to explore the startup community at StudentStartupLife.com

Announcing our Launch Party 8 Companies!

Announcing our Launch Party 8 Companies!

2017 was a record-breaking year with more applicants than ever before. It's exciting news for our community (but it's hard for us to turn down so many great founders & hard working teams.) 

We're thrilled to introduce you to the class of 2017. Over the past seven years, Launch Party has supported nearly 70 tech startups as they introduce products to an eager audience of investors, business leaders, students, and an awesome community of Edmonton boosters. We can't stress enough the importance of hometown support as people build and launch tech-enabled products from our city. You are often the first customers and champions for these teams and your input as they develop product and grow is invaluable. 

Before we share with you the line-up for Launch Party 8, I'd like to share one of my favourite parts of the night with you; it's seeing our guests try out the products built by local companies, especially technologies they wouldn't normally interact with. This year's line-up is chalk full of technology trends like machine learning, virtual reality, 360 projection, video games, and physical products with innovative design patents for you to get your hands on.

I hope you will join us on October 19 in Ford Hall, Rogers Place for a massive celebration of the hard work, innovative products, and supportive community that you're helping to build here in Edmonton. Tickets are $25 (and just $15 for students!)
