From meetups to international conferences: Why events matter year-round

From meetups to international conferences: Why events matter year-round

This week, the Startup team is at Inventures, an unconference where creative minds connects entrepreneurs and start-ups with venture capitalists, angel investors, service providers, and thought leaders to discover and share the latest in innovation coming. While just a few weeks ago, the startup community was out in full force at Collision, North America’s fastest growing tech conference. We thought it would be a great time to look at how events (big and small) have an impact on Edmonton’s tech founders.

While there’s no doubt Collision was an amazing experience for the 10 Edmonton startups that participated, social events are equally as important to the success of the city’s ecosystem.

Here’s what Tiffany Linke-Boyo, our CEO, had to say.

Before you head out for a great long weekend full of lots of fun with friends and family, take a few minutes to save our Edmonton Startup Week 2018 dates on your calendar. From October 15 - 19, you're not going to miss any of the action as we celebrate the very best our startup and innovation community has to offer. 

Interested in getting involved? We're currently looking for great people, companies, and organizations to partner with us. You can check out all the opportunities at EdmontonStartupWeek.com.

This month, we welcomed more than 20 students across a variety of programs and schools to our Student Summer Program. They spend the next four months with us immersed in the process of building a tech company. We're always impressed with the students' creativity and commitment and are grateful to the members for welcoming them with open arms. 

As always, we have exciting workshops and programs on deck this month and into June. If you're looking for marketing support, Stephanie has two Startup 101 sessions perfect to help you approach campaigns from a new perspective.

Preflight is accepting applications, with workshop series focused on product and company development, and telling your story slated to start in just a few weeks. 

Safe travels this weekend!
