Chic Geek & Startup Calgary Movie Night!

Chic Geek and Startup Calgary are excited to partner for Movie Night! This event brings together members of our community over popcorn and a good film. We watch documentaries and videos focusing on entrepreneurship, startups, and women in tech. This time we’re settling in for Startup Community, a Canadian documentary about the Waterloo startup ecosystem.

Waterloo is recognized as one of Canada’s strongest startup communities. But why? What makes this region so different? Filmmaker Taylor Jackson and his team talked to local entrepreneurs, finding out how the region helped them succeed in a way no other place could have.

We’re excited to host Taylor Jackson, filmmaker visionary behind the movie. In an exclusive fireside chat, Taylor will share his experience filming Startup Community, key learnings and interesting trends he noticed. We’ll talk about how we can apply this to our own local startup community and continue to see it grow.

Who should come?

If you’re interested in learning about the startup world or want to be part of growing the startup community in Calgary, this is the place for you! We’ll provide popcorn, drinks, and other snacks so you get the full movie-goer experience. All genders are welcome!
