Accelerate Alberta Returns for Third Year

Posted by Rob Lewis

When talking Canadian tech, the cities of Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, and Waterloo get trumpeted long before either of Alberta's two big cities come up.

In 2011, a group called The A100 set out to change this and pull the spotlight toward Alberta's tech ecosystem.

In partnership with The C100, The A100 planned a small event called AccelerateAB to get the ball rolling. What was originally expected to be a casual event for 100 to 150 people exploded into a sell-out conference of over 350 attendees and one of the first true community gatherings for Alberta’s ecosystem.

With a ruthless focus on putting entrepreneurs first, AccelerateAB surged again in 2012 with 475 attendees, with mentors and investors flying in from San Francisco, New York, Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver.

Mozilla CEO, and fellow Canadian, Gary Kovacs is the opening keynote and his talk titled The Next Billion Users will touch on the huge global opportunity of wireless.

Heading into its third year, AccelerateAB in back this July and focused exclusively on connecting, educating and showcasing the incredible tech companies that proudly call Alberta home. Register online to attend.
