Congratulations to Jobber, Poppy Barley & Testfire Labs! Startup Canada

On May 25th, Startup Canada celebrated the nominees and winners for the fifth annual Startup Canada Awards - Prairies in Winnipeg. It's a chance to come together and recognize the outstanding achievements of entrepreneurs and founders across the country. 

This year was extra special for Edmonton as three companies with deep ties to the startup community and commitment to global expansion won in diverse categories. These founders and their teams work incredibly hard to deliver products that their customers love. A massive congratulations to all of them on receiving recognition of their contributions to our national innovation and entrepreneurial economy.

2018 is already off to a great start with lots of full meeting rooms, brand new members joining the space, and all of our Foundational Programs are open to registration! 

The first few weeks back in the office are always full of plan making for the year ahead. We're so excited to help support even more tech founders, students, and startup community members in 2018. 

Be sure to make a note on your calendar to join us for DemoCamp 39 on January 31st. Seeing folks demo their working products is the best inspiration to get started on your projects. Once you're inspired, Shay is leading more sessions of our Preflight program than ever before to guide you through the ups & downs of founding a tech company.

In celebration of our 5th anniversary at the Mercer Warehouse, we had the opportunity to chat with some of our alumni founders about how things have changed for their companies since our downtown community hub opened. We're thrilled that our milestones often coincide with exciting news from our alumni companies! Over the next six weeks, we'll be sharing updates from some of Edmonton's hardest working founders.

Our friends at Poppy Barley announced big news today! 1000 square feet of news with the opening of a flagship location at Southgate Centre in August 2017.

Congratulations to the incredibly hardworking team at Poppy Barley as they embark on an exciting new journey (and welcome 12 new members to the PB family!). Over the past five years, we assembled desks together as we moved into the Mercer Warehouse, you measured our feet in Work Space 1 for some of the first orders of boots, and welcomed hundreds of eager Poppy Barley customers at sample sales where lineups snaked down the stairwell and out onto 104th Street. 

It's an honor to share in so many milestones with you & we look forward to much more to come.
