AccelerateAB celebrates the best of Alberta’s technology scene. The annual conference brings together leaders, investors, influencers and supporters of Alberta’s technology ecosystem, with the goal of leveraging the success of the next generation of technology entrepreneurs across the province.
The event is backed by high-profile and successful leaders in the industry and is powered by the A100, a member-driven group of Alberta’s most noteworthy technology entrepreneurs.
AccelerateAB is all about creating collisions between early-stage and late-stage startups, angel investors, venture capitalists, service providers, government agencies, and more, making this THE tech conference to attend, year after year.
WHAT TO EXPECT
This year we’re shaking up AccelerateAB’s format to feature 20-minute high impact keynotes, enabling us to showcase a wider range of subject matter speakers, including: Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain & Crypto Currencies, Data Analytics, Data Management, Predictive Analytics, and Security, along with entrepreneur-focused panels. We’ll also have a 2019-edition of the always highly-anticipated ‘Eff-Ups’ panel, which features lessons learned and provides practical advice for entrepreneurs building companies in Alberta.
Women in Tech
DID YOU KNOW? In Alberta, the proportion of female tech founders in 2018 is almost double the national average at 30%.
A priority of AccelerateAB’s is to accelerate, support, and learn from Alberta’s outstanding female entrepreneurs to help continue this positive trajectory.
Powered by The A100, the Startup Advising Sessions are one of the most valuable experiences for any startups from all over Alberta. Successful applicants will be able to take advantage of a customized 1:1 workshop with A100 members and industry experts, a storytelling workshop and pitch coaching session with our PR Partner The Agency and 321 Growth Academy, a pitch coaching session with certified advisors, and pitch live on stage at AccelerateAB!
Networking is a highlight of AccelerateAB. It's an extremely valuable opportunity for attendees to make strategic partnerships and connections from across the province.
There are many ways to connect at AccelerateAB! From the startup pitches at the conference, to the designated networking breaks, and of course the all-inclusive community reception, there’s something for everyone!
During the AccelerateAB Conference, selected startups will get the chance to show off their stuff to 700 conference attendees including angel investors, venture capitalists, and influencers who can connect them with future partners and customers.
