Platform Calgary joins forces with a new set of program partners that will come together under the Innovation Centre’s roof, all with the collective goal of accelerating the growth of Calgary’s innovation economy. Eleven new partners have signed agreements, bringing the total number of partners to 37, with more on the way.
