A tipping point for Alberta innovation.
Platform Calgary is a trusted civic partner and hub for the regional innovation ecosystem--a community builder that is intricately connected to our fast-evolving innovation ecosystem. Through collaboration and programming, we are the champion for every entrepreneur taking their first steps. We are the home for Startup Calgary and founding members of the Calgary Innovation Coalition and the Alberta Innovation Corridor.
Partnership and collaboration is in our DNA. In 2020, we supported over 500 entrepreneurs through programs such as Junction, Alberta Yield, Foresight Cleantech Accelerator, Startup Visa, Startup Virtual Passport and the Student Entrepreneurship Sprint. A proven global accelerator is a perfect addition to this growing list of collaboration-driven programs.
