Now That AccelerateAB is Over, How Does Alberta Keep the Startup Momentum?

by Rob Lewis | Startups

AccelerateAB is in the books and the largest startup tech event to ever take place in Alberta has put the Energy Province on the map for something other than oil.

180 early-stage entrepreneurs and keen students from six major Alberta schools learned the ins and outs of tech at Startup University Day and 460 tech entrepreneurs from across Alberta got Silicon Valley class advice during the main C100 AccelerateAB conference.

The two-day event put some of Calgary and Edmonton's up-and-coming startups on the map and it's only a matter of time until we hear about the relationships forged this week turning into angel and seed investments.

Albertan entrepreneurs looking to keep the momentum up need to attend next week's Digital Alberta Awards in Calgary and those inspired to work for a startup should check out these job opportunities at AccelerateAB participant startups:
