It's the most exciting time of the year - Edmonton Startup Week returns, October 16 - 20, and this year we have more than 50 events for you to take in. The startup community has stepped up in a big way this year and many community partners, startups and scaling companies are hosting events in their spaces - we can't wait to see you there!

Be sure to build your schedule early - some events already have waitlists.

Scroll down to check out all the details on our Launch Party 8 companies. 2017 was a milestone year for us with more applicants than ever before.  Launch Party is your chance to try out top technology trends like machine learning, virtual reality, 360 projection, video games, and physical products with innovative design patents.

Edmonton’s 37th DemoCamp took place at the Centennial Centre for Interdisciplinary Sciences (CCIS) on the University of Alberta campus last Wednesday. Here is my recap of DemoCamp Edmonton 36 which took place in May.

Announcing our Launch Party 8 Companies!

Announcing our Launch Party 8 Companies!

2017 was a record-breaking year with more applicants than ever before. It's exciting news for our community (but it's hard for us to turn down so many great founders & hard working teams.) 

We're thrilled to introduce you to the class of 2017. Over the past seven years, Launch Party has supported nearly 70 tech startups as they introduce products to an eager audience of investors, business leaders, students, and an awesome community of Edmonton boosters. We can't stress enough the importance of hometown support as people build and launch tech-enabled products from our city. You are often the first customers and champions for these teams and your input as they develop product and grow is invaluable. 

Before we share with you the line-up for Launch Party 8, I'd like to share one of my favourite parts of the night with you; it's seeing our guests try out the products built by local companies, especially technologies they wouldn't normally interact with. This year's line-up is chalk full of technology trends like machine learning, virtual reality, 360 projection, video games, and physical products with innovative design patents for you to get your hands on.

I hope you will join us on October 19 in Ford Hall, Rogers Place for a massive celebration of the hard work, innovative products, and supportive community that you're helping to build here in Edmonton. Tickets are $25 (and just $15 for students!)
