It's been a while now since Startup Edmonton burst onto the scene, so I'm very excited to help spread the news that Calgary finally has a startup community group to call our own!
If you know of, or are part of a startup that would like to be featured at their Launch Party on November 23rd keep reading below...
"Fresh-faced, forward-thinking community building organization seeks hot, exciting new businesses to showcase..."
Startup Calgary is all about community building - our primary goal is to help pull the IT based, startup related communities in Calgary closer together. We know that's a pretty tall order - there's a lot of get togethers, basement startups, and technologies being dreamed up here in our city that no one is aware of. We want to make sure everyone has the support and exposure they need.
To get started on the right foot, we're having a party - November 23rd is Startup Calgary's Launch Party at the Hotel Arts! This party's not just about us though - we're looking to showcase 10 fresh, up-and-coming startups. The rules are simple; your company must be no more than two years old, have a product that's in the market (or almost ready to market), and be in information, communications, or media technology. And Calgarian of course!
If you're one of the lucky 10 picked, you'll be covered by our media sponsor Techvibes, get direct mentorship from the judging panel, and lots of great exposure to the entire Calgary startup community (including full bragging rights). To apply just fill out this form before November 5th. Tell us why you're the hot new thing - we're looking forward to hearing from all the great new companies in Calgary!
Don't forget to visit our website and sign up for our mailing list. We're also on Twitter - @startupcalgary and LinkedIn. We'll also be releasing more Launch Party details soon, including times, and where to get tickets. Hope to see you at a DemoCamp, Startup Drinks, or community event soon!
