As the signature event of Innovation Week, Launch Party is Calgary’s largest startup-focused showcase of the year and spotlights some of the city’s most promising startups.
Taking place on the final day of Innovation Week, this year’s Launch party will be the 14th annual pitch event and counts Goodlawyer, Quickly, StellarAlgo, Virtual Gurus, and ZayZoon among its 150 alumni.
From digital pharmacy solutions to cannabis data analytics and automotive intelligence software, 10 Calgary startups are poised to make their mark in the global innovation community.
Three prizes are up for grabs —a People’s Choice Award, the Alumni’s Choice Award and the Alex Raczenko Pitch Award. Winners will receive thousands of dollars worth of resources and services to continue growing their startup.
While Calgary.tech has profiled finalists AITHR Automotive Intelligence, Collegium Technologies, Digital Carbon Bank, HEMPALTA, Huumans, MedEssist, Monark, Neobi, and OraQ, Platform Calgary have recently published short pitch videos from the startups that are worth checking out.
The Top 10 Launch Party companies were nominated by the Calgary innovation community and selected by a committee of three Launch Party alumni founders. This year’s committee was Al-Karim Khimji of Propra, Shannon Vander Meulen of WaitWell, and Marlise Hunter of Tall Grass Ventures.
