What is the Connector?

Rainforest Alberta – Connector is an informal get-together for Edmonton entrepreneurs at all stages (from ideation to exiting), small business owners, and ecosystem helpers looking to encourage and promote collisions between people and create connections that will help drive the success of entrepreneurs in Alberta’s innovation system.

Join us to meet new like-minded people, celebrate successes and learn from failures, and build a community that supports and promotes entrepreneurship across the Province.

Events will be hosted online via Zoom and a password is required to access the meetings, therefore registration is mandatory.

As a member of the Rainforest, you are not excluding yourself from any other community or initiative. We seek to be a harmonious complement to other aligned initiatives and anyone from the community is explicitly invited to join us.

What is Rainforest Alberta?

Rainforest Alberta is a movement, building community in the tech and innovation ecosystem in the province through opening conversations around culture, leadership, and other focus areas.

We believe Alberta is primed to be a global destination for growing your tech venture right in this province. Come to a meeting to find out why, or for more information, visit www.rainforestab.ca
