Day-in-and-day-out we see the impact our members and alumni companies have on our city's economy. They are hiring, renting larger office spaces as their teams grow, and bringing investment to the region. It's our pleasure to be of service to these founders, teams, and entrepreneurs each step of the way with programming, mentorship, flexible workspace, and access to a supportive community.
Yesterday, we hosted the Government of Alberta for an exciting announcement regarding the Alberta Entrepreneurship Incubator Program. Edmonton region business incubators TEC Edmonton, NAIT, Northern Alberta Business Incubator, and Startup Edmonton will receive $1.5 million funding over two years from the provincial government to provide increased services to entrepreneurs and startups looking to enter and navigate the innovation system. Funding will support entrepreneurs, recent graduates and innovators by providing mentorship, business advice and open access to testing space, and world class prototyping and light manufacturing equipment.
