Alberta Reception in Silicon Valley
Once thought of as "the country above the US", Canada has recently emerged as a global leader in technology & innovation.
Long known for being a leader in energy and natural gas, Alberta has been diversifying to compete on the global stage and quietly producing globally competitive organizations such as Bioware (acquired by EA in 2007); Benevity ($40M Series C, Oct 2019), and Solium (acquired by Morgan-Stanley for $1.1B in 2019).
For the second year we are inviting an exciting group of startups from Alberta for an Immersion into Silicon Valley and we hope you will join us for an engaging evening. We will be in conversation with experienced founders & CEOs about starting and scaling a global tech company. We willl discuss the benefits (and drawbacks) of building in Canada and how to take advantage of the rich ecosystem in Silicon Valley.
