Launch Party is a highlight of each Edmonton Startup Week. It's a chance for the entire community to come together, celebrate the efforts of 10 new tech companies, try out products that feature top technology trends, and catch up with the growing list of alumni founders & teams. This year we were thrilled to host the community in Ford Hall, Rogers Place. Especially neat for the team at Startup Edmonton is that we could see our home in the historic Mercer Warehouse in the background all night long. Enjoy some of the photos of our more than 700 guests from Michel Feist, Ampersand Grey, and highlights of #yegsw17 compiled by Shayne Woodsmith at EEDC.
Our next round of photos is ready! We're thrilled to share moments from Roundhouse @ Startup Edmonton, Lunchalytics, Valley Tech Talk, and Lift Interactive's Tackling Intangibles Workshop. Special thanks, as always to Shayne and Jeff at Edmonton Economic Development and Michel Feist at Ampersand Grey for all of their help.
Next week we'll have a recap video and photos from Launch Party 8!
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.
