May Update: May Update: Edmonton Startup Week, Company Profiles, and Workshop Opportunities

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

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!

Do you have questions about Preflight?

Do you have questions about Preflight?

A few weeks ago Stephanie and Shay sat down for a conversation about Preflight.

Get to know Shay and her approach to mentorship and programs. She also gives a great overview of what you can expect from our Preflight membership. Shay is currently facilitating Preflight 2 and has a new session of Preflight 1 starting on April 12th. 

Preflight 1 is a great fit if you want to start moving forward with your tech-product idea. You don't need to know how to build a tech product! This session is all about researching and finding proof that your customers actually want your product before you start to build. 

One of the coolest parts of our Preflight membership is that you can join in at any stage of your product development or launch. If you're ready to start talking to investors or you want to map out marketing and sales plans, Preflight 3 is your best option. Over 5-weeks, you'll build out your pitch deck, get lots of feedback, and create 12-week marketing and sales plans to launch in the market or reconnect with your customers.
