Closing with Launch Party

Plus, new Calgary tech jobs for engineers

Welcome to the Midweek Memo: a weekly digest of the city’s top tech events, personnel moves, job openings, and industry opportunities.

Before we get into this, check out the results from our weekly poll: On Sunday, we asked if you had attended an Innovation Week event. Sixty percent of you said that you chose not to attend an event this year.

Now, on to your Midweek Memo…

TOMORROW: Innovation Week Launch Party | Nov. 23

  • Innovation Week 2023 will wrap by highlighting some of Calgary’s most promising startups at Launch Party — the largest startup-focused showcase of the year.

  • 2,000+ people will come together to celebrate Calgary’s tech community and put a spotlight on 10 startups that made their mark this last year. Hundreds of companies have been showcased at Launch Party over the years, including big names like SkipTheDishes, StellarAlgo, Orpyx, Virtual Gurus, Red Iron Labs, and more.


The Black Women Business Network and its partners, Black Buildup and TAP Network, invite you to participate in a research project exploring the underrepresentation of Black professionals in B.C. and Alberta’s tech sectors.

Systemic barriers in Canada lead to unfair treatment and disadvantages for racial groups, especially Black individuals. The technology industry lacks significant Black representation. Addressing and understanding these disparities is crucial for a more equitable society.

The 10-minute survey is anonymous and an opportunity to share your experiences and contribute to our understanding of diversity in the tech sector.

  • Join over 25 educational sessions covering the industries biggest trends.

  • Attend keynotes with industry leaders before networking with fellow attendees.

  • Speak directly with vendors and see tech in action with live demonstrations.
