Mayor Iveson and Greg Burlet chat about building a startup in Edmonton

Launch Party 9 was a great night! Throughout the night, 800 community builders, business leaders, community champions, and supporters connected with our ten companies showing off their new tech products. It’s our favourite night of the year because so many Edmontonians come out to celebrate these companies, try their products, and act as their champions.

Late in the program, Mayor Don Iveson and Greg Burlet, Founder of Frettable, snuck outside for a chat all about the process of building a tech company in Edmonton. From Chief Feline Officers to the role of startup communities, the challenges of finding early-stage capital to setting up employee benefits - Greg and Don cover a lot of ground!
