About
Start Alberta

Start Alberta provides a digital gathering space for Alberta’s Innovation Ecosystem. The platform, powered by Dealroom, easily and swiftly provides users with macro-level information including the total number of tech start- and scale-ups, individual and cumulative funding rounds, and more micro information helpful in conducting preliminary due diligence.

Community stakeholders like entrepreneurs, tech founders, start-and scale-up teams, active investors, policymakers, service providers, and students receive near-real-time updates on the innovation ecosystem’s movement and digital platform.

Start Alberta’s gatherings convene the community to learn firsthand from experienced founders and best-in-class service providers about the ins and outs of this critical industry subsegment in Alberta.

Start Alberta was created through the foresight of our Founding Partners: The A100, Alberta Enterprise Corporation, and the Venture Capital Association of Alberta who saw the opportunity and need to bring transparency to a previously opaque industry sub-segment.
