During a time of uncertainty, while the pandemic persists, members of Calgary’s tech sector discussed the future of innovation and entrepreneurship during Avenue’s Innovation Adaptation event presented in association with Alberta Innovates.
Four Calgarian tech entrepreneurs who hail from a broad spectrum of industries — social enterprise, health and medical, food and agriculture, and start-up — led a frank but optimistic panel discussion on navigating the ever-changing trajectory of tech in Calgary during a global health crisis. They also fielded questions from an audience of more than 110 attendees who logged in to the 90-minute digital event.
The lively discussion and Q&A period touched on topics such as if large organizations and start-ups can build mutually beneficial relationships, what age is too old to pivot to an entrepreneurial career (hint: the consensus was you’re never too old) or how Calgary’s energy sector has instilled a strong foundation of transferable skills to the talent pool in our city, and more.
The live event is available to view until the end of November here.
