Calgary’s vision is to become the destination of choice for the best entrepreneurs who embrace innovation to solve global challenges – a city of innovators for social good that attracts bright minds from around the world.
Whether it’s for cleaner energy, safe and secure food, the efficient movement of goods and people, better health solutions, or even Hollywood-calibre storytelling, Calgary is a community of problem solvers on the leading edge.
It’s written into the roadmap for the city’s economic future, Calgary in the New Economy, and evident in the tech ecosystem – from startups and scaleups, to multinational, billion-dollar unicorns.
Technology is engrained in all of Calgary’s established and emerging industries and it’s where research from the region’s internationally recognized institutions turns into applied innovations.
The city’s commitment to digital transformation, its supportive innovation ecosystem and young, community-driven talent is what makes it Canada’s most adventurous tech city. It’s where ideas on how to make the world a better place can – and have – turned into billion-dollar businesses.
