Launch Party 9 | Exciting Plans for October 18

Launch Party 9 | Exciting Plans for October 18

Launch Party is my favourite event of the year. In 2010, Startup Edmonton held its first Launch Party at the Matrix Hotel. I volunteered to help check people in at the registration table that night, and it was my first interaction with the passionate startup community in Edmonton.

Since that first incarnation, Launch Party has found a home in many unique locations, from our space in the Mercer Warehouse to Rogers Place! This year we’re thrilled to be at the beautiful Enbridge Centre located at 10175 - 101 Street.

To accommodate even more people this year and give them the chance to try the hottest new tech products from local companies, we’re introducing two types of tickets. This way you can join in the fun right after the workday or come back and spend the evening with us.

Alumni Update: Customer Identity Leader LoginRadius Announces $17M Series A Funding from ForgePoint and Microsoft’s Venture Fund, M12

In March of 2015, Rakesh Soni shared a blog post "How Edmonton's startup ecosystem helped us dramatically grow LoginRadius." He shared the progress of the company and how they interacted with so many of the supporters, organizations, and events our city has to offer as they began their journey to build a tech product. They have come a long way since working on their business idea from a mining camp site room 120km north of Fort McMurray! 

Today, LoginRadius announced a $17M in Series A funding from  ForgePoint and Microsoft’s Venture Fund, M12. This new injections of funds will be used to accelerate product innovation, customer acquisition, and global expansion.

Since its launch in 2012, LoginRadius has relentlessly focused on customer identity and has experienced triple-digit annual growth for the past two years. The company has grown to support global offices in Vancouver, London, San Francisco, Sydney, and Jaipur, with plans to more than double its workforce in the next 12 months. 

Here at Startup Edmonton, we had the pleasure of working with LoginRadius in their very early days!
