June Update

Thank you for helping us celebrate our Mercer Warehouse 5th anniversary in May! We had a wonderful time connecting with current and past member companies, Launch Party alumni, and all of the community members that help make our space in the historic Mercer Warehouse come alive at more than 285+ events a year. 

June is a great opportunity to get started on your project or product idea before all the hustle and bustle of the summer months! We have lots of workshops coming up including Startup 101: Managing Cashflow with our friends from PwCBusiness Model 101Product Toolkit, and a special introduction to design thinking at the Google Shop. 

I look forward to seeing you soon!

This week we celebrated our 5th anniversary in the Mercer Warehouse. Over the past five years, weโ€™ve had the chance to connect with hundreds of entrepreneurs, see teams grow, and more students engage with local startups. It is our honour to support our cityโ€™s growing startup community.

This month we have a ton of opportunities for you to join in on the celebration! On May 30th, Kelly Hoey joins us for โ€œBuilding Your Dream Networkโ€. I met Kelly last month and was really impressed with her approach. We have limited availability; be sure to scoop up your ticket soon.

Thank you for your continued support of our work and the amazing efforts of our member companies.

On Saturday, March 25th we welcomed more than 150 high school and post-secondary students to our third annual Student Developer Conference. It was an incredible day of keynotes, workshops, AMA sessions, and a job mixer with some of our city's fastest growing companies. 

Three pieces of advice came through loud & clear from our speakers:

As we get ready to shift into spring (and for many of the members, grudgingly move our clocks forward), this March the Startup Edmonton team is focused on connecting our city's talented technical students with hiring startups and scaling companies. Over the past three months, we've had dozens of activities on campuses and at our space where students can hear from people working in companies, get to know friendly faces, and start making concrete plans for their education and post-graduation life.

Thank you to everyone that came out for August Hack Day. Warren worked on some culinary science experiments, Ross & Colin gave a great Intro to Raspberry Pi workshop, and Free Code Camp saw a bunch of first time participants.
