At Platform Calgary, we know the power of physical space to build community. This fall, we will open the Platform Innovation Centre, a 50,000 square foot single point of access to Calgary’s innovation ecosystem. Functioning as a hub to support startups and entrepreneurs at all stages of their journey, the Innovation Centre will help grow Calgary’s tech and entrepreneurial community.
An increase in network resources for entrepreneurs will lead to more local business, meaning more jobs and economic growth. It will be a place where tech entrepreneurs and founders get everything they need to succeed, but it will also be a place that celebrates and encourages the collisions between people that can create exceptional results.
Located in the heart of our city, it will be both a physical and metaphorical hub for our growing tech industry and ecosystem. We know you may have some questions about the new space, so here are some details to get to know the Platform Innovation Centre.
