We are committed to help grow Calgary’s tech ecosystem by starting at the bottom, with simple yet profound ideas.
After years of working with existing entrepreneurs and startups, we noticed that there are many organizations, mentors and funders that support existing startups. There is a huge gap though for everyone that has an idea, a vision for a startup or are working towards becoming a full-time startup. We decided to dig deeper and focus our efforts on empowering these entrepreneurs to start building, help them meet other great entrepreneurs in our city and ultimately create more successful startups in our city! Narrowing Startup Calgary’s vision to being “Focused on the start” will see us only take on programs, projects and events that work towards: Sparking people’s ideas for building their own startup Getting people actively working on building their startup idea Assisting these “pre-startups” in getting the tools, resources, mentorship, funding and customers required to make the leap into being a full-time startup
