Joined the team: Fall 2019.
Michael "Make it Work Mike" Scullen is the IT Systems Lead at Platform Calgary.
Helps startups with?
As IT Lead and the fixer of that which is broken, he not only resets passwords and makes the wifi work but helps implement the digital systems that enable Platform to fulfil its important mission helping startups.
Michael started his professional career in technology in the basement of a local computer retailer by building and repairing PCs. He then spent time studying art before coming on at Calgary Arts Development developing websites, managing digital systems and making sure the bits all flowed according to plan. After a stop-over in the beverage industry, similarly performing a dual communications and technology support role, he arrived at Platform Calgary ready to help build our city's next economy.
Fun outside work?
If there is a solution hiding in an unlikely place, Michael loves uncovering it. He brings enthusiasm for improving systems and has a tenacity for fixing things. He transfers this trait when he's fixing bicycles, his favorite mode of transportation. He likes spending time outdoors on and off two wheels in and around Calgary with his family.
