Downtown Edmonton is the epicentre of our bustling tech ecosystem. High-profile companies like Google’s DeepMind and Improbable are anchored in Downtown. Wildly successful startups like Jobber and Granify are growing here; established companies like Bioware are moving into innovative Downtown spaces. In the heart of Downtown, world-renowned artificial intelligence researchers are forging ahead in uncharted frontiers that offer unprecedented opportunities for economic growth. It is the new arms race and Edmonton has taken a prominent place on the world stage, but will it continue?
Cities that boldly move forward by supporting their startup ecosystem, collaborating and strategically investing in this sector, will be at the forefront of the next technological revolution. Join us for the release of our 2019 Business Report “The Impact of Tech on Downtown Edmonton”.
The report looks at our growing tech industry in Downtown, its impacts on the Downtown business community, explores areas of opportunity for us to capitalize on and what is possible if we move forward together.
Following the presentation of the report, there will be a panel discussion with industry experts moderated by Jeremy Hayward, President of solūt, to explore this topic even further.
