President’s Note – March 14th

As we Spring Forward this weekend, the Alberta Tech sector has even more to look forward to than the up-coming warmer spring weather, including information provided in this newsletter on: Funding Programs; Upcoming Conferences; Community Events.

As many of you have seen via Linked-in – Alberta Innovates is at the famous SXSW (South by Southwest) Conference in Austin Texas with many Alberta Entrepreneurs – helping these companies grow through increased understanding, visibility and networks. Reminder that registration to the Inventures Conference is open – so that you can have a small taste of this type of experience here in Alberta, and launch your international networks.

On the topic of local events, Technology Alberta is very pleased that our Entrepreneur-led monthly ICE Partner Series sessions continue to sell-out. Over 100 people are registered for the ERPBC Advanced Technology Centre (ATC) PI-Day March 14 session – featuring award-winning entrepreneurial companies: NanopreciseUmayNanospeed Diagnostics, and Frontech. We look forward to sharing clips from this event on our LinkedIn account, so be sure to follow us – and don’t miss next month’s session on Thursday, April 18,  ICE Series 4: See what is brewing up in St. Albert – where our co-hosts are NABICity of St. AlbertRainforest, and ASTech award-winning entrepreneur – Wilson AnalyticalJoin us for open houses, discussions, and some featured local beverages.
