About us

Platform Calgary is a non-profit, member based organization. Our mandate is to bring together the resources of Calgary's tech ecosystem to help startups launch and grow at every step of their journey, from ideation through to scale.

We've aligned a collaborative ecosystem of 100+ local, national and international partners to impact four areas critical to the success of Calgary's tech & innovation economy:

Founder Training & Mentorship

From idea through to growth, founders and entrepreneurs get the tools the need to help them go further, faster. Our goal is to increase the number of companies starting and scaling in Calgary by 10x.

Investor Development & Engagement

Help tech companies grow and scale by attracting and stimulating early-stage investment. Our goal is to increase the number and awareness of active investors, leading to more investments in local startups.

Industry-led Innovation

Connect enterprise leaders and industry challenges with local tech startups. Our goal is to make Calgary an innovation leader in our strongest economic sectors.

Talent Development & Hiring

Introduce bright minds to the best skill development programs and to companies that want to hire. Our goal is to make Calgary one of Canada's top tech talent markets: diverse, inclusive and highly skilled.

 

Our Strategy

We know that a thriving tech ecosystem accelerates startup growth, and we've seen how it works in other cities around the world. Our advantage? We've learned from the best, and we're putting our own spin on it. So we're bringing together founders and their teams, corporate and community partners, investors and tech talent all under one roof. All these people are committed to a city-wide culture of collaboration anchored in diversity, accessibility and equity. 

Behind every great innovator is a great community. The Platform Innovation Centre is the front door to this community — a single point of access for people as they navigate Calgary’s innovation ecosystem.
