Alberta Catalyzer | Southern Alberta Velocity Showcase

June 20, 2023 @ 4:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Meet the startups from Southern Alberta building innovative solutions to day-to-day challenges. Hear their big ideas in person on the pitch stage at the Platform Innovation Centre.

This celebration and showcase will include pitches from each of the startups followed by a reception. You’ll get to chat with the Alberta Catalyzer team, meet the founders and hear about all the amazing work they’ve been doing in Alberta Catalyzer (Velocity learning stream) over the past several weeks.

In this eight-week program, startups work with a coach to establish a strong go-to-market strategy, polish their pitch, get investment readiness basics, and work towards qualifying for scale-up accelerators. The Velocity learning stream is delivered in person and the cohorts are divided into Northern and Southern Alberta. Check out the Northern Alberta Velocity Showcase in Edmonton on June 22nd!

About Alberta Catalyzer

Alberta Catalyzer is part of the Alberta Scaleup and Growth Accelerator Program, led by Alberta Innovates. The consortium, which also includes Technology and Innovation, Edmonton Unlimited, and Prairies Economic Development Canada (PrairiesCan), allocated $35 million over three years to retain business accelerators. It’s part of an overall government goal to help create 20,000 jobs and increase technology firm revenue to $5 billion by 2030.

Alberta Catalyzer is a pre-accelerator program helping early-stage tech-enabled or based startups to launch and grow in Alberta.

Alberta Catalyzer supports startup founders working towards three main milestones:

  • Building and testing the first version of their Minimum Viable Product (MVP).
  • Developing communication and selling strategies, and refining their product with their customers.
  • Creating scalable systems and processes to help founders accelerate their business.
