The Launch Party is an annual event put on by the Calgary Economic Development’s “Startup Calgary” initiative that highlights Calgary’s top up-and-coming tech startups. This year, 15 businesses were selected to participate in the event, which had a turnout of over 800 attendees. The event was thrown in true startup fashion: giant tricycles, human-size Jenga, air hockey, swings, and more antics filled the space as guests explored the different exhibits.
Each participating startup was given a booth space to get creative and showcase their businesses to attendees, who could vote on their favourite pitches and displays. From aquaponics, to AI solutions, to mechanics that come to you – the evening made clear that the Calgary tech ecosystem is truly thriving!
The night ended with one prestigious award – the People’s Choice Award – that Jeff Ehmann (Co-Founder) and the MicroMech team was honoured to take home.
