Touring across the province has been invigorating for our team at Technology Alberta. Whether through our following programs or partnered initiatives – we are so pleased to work with our Alberta-wide team of volunteers, entrepreneurs, and staff to collaborate and connect with audiences ranging from the public, industry, government, and academia – in support of regional innovators, entrepreneurs, and community champions:
- A Fair to Remember
- ICE (Innovation Community Events) Series–
- LIW (Learning Integrated Work) Series–
- ASTech Awards – Guest Speakers–
- FIRST Jobs – and Company Showcases
Alberta Innovates has provided a great framework and outstanding support for innovation in Alberta through the Regional Innovation Networks (RINs), Accelerators, and much more. By all of us working with and supporting all 8 RIN’s – especially the rural communities, we can help increase capacity and “lift all boats”. Perhaps a version for the prairies is better stated by Olds’ AgSmart – where by working together, we can help “Grow Alberta’s Entrepreneurs” and Alberta’s Tech Sector.
Thanks everyone, for stepping up, and sharing your networks and time – and remember to consider:
- Nominating outstanding Alberta Innovators for an ASTech Award, and
- Growing Alberta’s Tech Companies while supporting local student talent – by letting all know of Alberta’s WIL grant opportunities, such as the FIRST Jobs Program.
See you soon,
– Gail and the Technology Alberta Team
