The Platform Innovation Centre opened its doors on June 6, 2022. Calgary’s new home for innovators will welcome Calgarians into the city’s first purpose-built hub for tech and innovation in the province.
Poised to offer a “one-stop-shop” for tech startups at all stages and sizes, the Platform Innovation Centre is the new home of Platform Calgary and more than 70 service partners offering resources, programming and events designed to help founders and entrepreneurs launch and grow their companies.
“We know from the extensive experience of other tech hubs around the world that the whole system moves faster when it is brought together under one roof,” Terry Rock, President and CEO at Platform Calgary. “Connections and collaboration matter when developing and growing a startup, finding a high potential tech investment, or when engaging innovators to drive corporate transformation. This is what the Innovation Centre will facilitate.”
The Innovation Centre is a flexible, future-proofed and accessible facility anchored in an emerging Innovation District within the East Village, right across from the Central Library. It is a landmark public space in a fast-growing neighbourhood and a symbol that Calgary is serious about building its innovation economy.
Calgarians curious to learn about tech in the city, connect with the tech community or find career opportunities are invited to attend upcoming public events at the Innovation Centre:
Tech Talent Tuesday is a meetup every second Tuesday of the month connecting career seekers with some of Calgary’s fastest-growing tech companies. Come meet Neo Financial on June 7th and AltaML on June 21st.
