Presentation: No Doom. No Gloom. How Technology and Innovation are Revitalizing Calgary’s Economy
Description: It’s been wildly underreported but there is a thriving technology and innovation scene gathering steam in Calgary. Companies across the city are attracting global attention, massive venture capital investment, F500 clients and billion-dollar valuations. As the industry scales up even further, tech talent across the country will increasingly flock to Calgary for its opportunity and high quality of life. This is the next generation of Calgary homebuyers.

In this session, Alice Reimer, one of Calgary’s most compelling tech entrepreneurs, will tell you the story of Calgary’s technology explosion, starting with the founding of her company Evoco in 1999 when the city was on exactly nobody’s radar as a tech hotbed. You’ll learn about the pioneering work Calgary companies are doing across the life sciences, agriculture, energy and other areas – and what comes next. It’s been said that within a decade every company will be a technology company. But for Calgary’s tech scene, the future is now.
