Community-Driven Event Encourages Local Startups to Get Involved

AccelerateAB, the annual two-day event for Alberta’s tech entrepreneurs, is excited to announce another year of great sponsors. Each year, AccelerateAB connects and exposes local startups to key mentors, investors and partners. With over 450+ of the most innovative industry leaders, this event provides an opportunity to dramatically increase the prevalence and success of Alberta’s entrepreneurs.

Aligned with its mission to be a community driven event, this year’s AccelerateAB welcomes a unique sponsorship category for local startups to get involved as event supporters. This special level of sponsorship enables entrepreneurs who have benefited from AccelerateAB in the past to get involved and give back, bolstering the ever-growing startup ecosystem in Alberta.

One of this year’s startup sponsors is Mailout Interactive, an Edmonton-based company that has been helping customers communicate better via email newsletters since 2001. “AccelerateAB was my gateway to Alberta’s tech community,” says Mailout’s Founder Gregg Oldring of his experience at the conference. “By showing our support for the event, we make it clear that there is something significant going on here.”

AccelerateAB takes place April 29th, 2015 in Calgary. Local startups will also have an opportunity to participate in the A100 Roundtable Sessions on April 28th.

This year’s presenting partners are KPMG and Alberta Enterprise. Producing Partners are the C100 and the A100.
