Calgary’s Home For Innovators

Behind every great innovator is a great community. The Platform Innovation Centre is the front door to Calgary’s tech sector — a single point of access for innovators to collide and connect with the people and resources needed to launch, grow and scale their startup.

Offering partners a shared space to support our city’s bright minds, the purpose-built and future-proofed facility anchors an emerging Innovation District within the East Village neighbourhood and is a symbol that Calgary is serious about building its innovation economy.
