Startup Calgary

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.

Don't forget to visit our website and sign up for our mailing list.

We're also on Twitter - @startupcalgary
Linkedin Group - Startup Calgary.

Hope to see you at a DemoCamp, Startup Drinks, or community event soon!
