Summit Series: Venture Alberta and Startup Calgary present two-day Startup Workshops on Aug 28th and 29th

Venture Alberta LogoAfter a great Summit in Edmonton in June, the Summit Series returns to southern Alberta for August 28th and 29th. The Edmonton Summit was a success with nine companies getting access to mentors, sales and operational help, finance and deal mentors, and even developers.

If you are a Calgary startup, it's worthwhile to  take two days to give yourself a workplan and an investor strategy. Also find mentors and assistance at the VA Summit Series, supported by Startup Calgary.

The Calgary Summit is a go with a number of companies already signed up, so if you or a company you know would love to “pitch for talent” and get 10 hours of free time from “been there done that” mentor capitalists and angels, they would look forward to having you join the Base Camp for the first two days and then the Summit on the Monday evening.
