As we prepare to launch Alberta’s pre-accelerator, we are looking to you – our innovation community – for the best name to excite and inspire the world about Alberta’s fast-growing tech industry.

Click here to enter your proposed name for the pre-accelerator before December 1, 2021. A shortlist of the best proposals will be given to our name selection committee for a final decision. 

The person with the winning suggestion for the final name of the pre-accelerator will receive a $1,000 prize.

Alberta’s pre-accelerator is a merit-based program series supporting founders and their start-ups anywhere in Alberta. It is part of a broader vision to build a pan-provincial innovation ecosystem and position Alberta as a global tech leader and proving ground for founders. 

The province-wide initiative, led by Platform Calgary, Innovate Edmonton, and Alberta Innovates, will deliver free business support and advice to qualified founders, entrepreneurs and startups in the early stages of their company’s development; it will get them ready to advance to the scaleup/acceleration stage. Together, we are diversifying our economy by helping to create the jobs and businesses of the future… now.
