INNOVATE™ Alberta will celebrate the province’s abundant natural resources, creativity, determination, and capital and how these factors are transformed into products and services that drive innovation.
The booming breath of business in Alberta is powered by a variety of stakeholders, including educators, enterprises, startups, and public agents. This collaboration of minds is allowing the province to compete at a global level and this is just the beginning, as more people are noticing Edmonton’s Artificial Intelligence capabilities and Calgary’s digital transformation.
