Today, Platform Calgary is announcing the latest organizations to join as community members in the Platform Innovation Centre. Opening spring 2021, the Centre will offer entrepreneurs and startup companies support from a host of dynamic partners, many already active with Platform Calgary.

That is the key step toward seriously growing our tech sector to be an engine for new economic growth, job creation and shared prosperity.”
