Calgary's innovation ecosystem gained momentum this summer as Rainforest Alberta visited some of the spaces where innovation is being built right in the city. Attendees got to see the inner workings of tech companies like Benevity and Communo, and innovation cheerleaders like Hunter Hub and Platform Calgary.
Rainforest Alberta also said farewell to its home for the past two years, Nucleus Calgary, located at Cenovus.
As September creeps in, Rainforest Alberta wants to extend its deepest gratitude to all of the venue hosts that made this summer possible.
Rainforest Alberta will be moving from Nucleus to be with their friends at Platform Calgary, and Lunch Without Lunch will be hosted at various locations in East Village. Make sure to attend LWOL and you can see Platform Calgary be built right before your eyes!
Our next LWOL is hosted by EvolveU, on the 3rd floor of the Central Library. RSVP to save time at the door!
Trico Changemakers @ MRU opened up discussions around the need for non-tech experience within the tech industry and changemaking in the non profit sector.
We said goodbye to our home at Nucleus Calgary, and had Sherry Yang, chapter lead for Canada Learning Code, cohost the event to talk about representation with Role Models in technology.
Bow Valley College gave us a high level overview of their Creative Technologies arm, as well as initiatives like Innovation Rodeo and Venture Quest.
Hunter Hub finished off our summer tour with a pizza lunch and an overview of the entrepreneurial projects coming up at UCalgary.Posted: Thursday, August 29th, 7:03pm 6 months ago
