Innovation Ecosystem

Innovate Edmonton facilitates an innovation ecosystem that embraces the breadth of the city and builds productive relationships across the urban fabric – communities, government, schools, colleges and universities, companies, firms, founders and entrepreneurs, and cultural communities. From each of these groups we draw out new ideas, solutions, concepts, and initiatives that are applied to opportunities and global problems. 

We create, curate, and promote programs, networks, forums, communication channels, funding, investment, and spaces to ensure our reach is effective and visible to the whole community. Our support begins with our thriving tech sector and extends to Edmonton’s social, sustainable, cultural, and economic sectors and beyond.  

Together, we will elevate Edmonton as an innovation capital, a global centre of excitement, opportunity, and growth that secures an economic future for Edmonton’s residents, communities and companies.
