The Platform Innovation Centre will open later this year with a community of members and partners who are dedicated to growing Calgary’s tech and innovation ecosystem. Located in Calgary’s East Village neighbourhood, the Innovation Centre will provide street-level access to the tools and resources needed to accelerate the diversification of our economy.
Platform Calgary has a goal of tripling Calgary’s tech startup sector by 2030, and the community that makes up the Innovation Centre will be key to making that happen.
As of now, we have a group of 44 committed Program Partners and Members who have signed MOUs to be part of Platform’s vision, with more to come.
