Leading in Learning Forum

Leading in Learning

Alberta, along with every entrepreneurial jurisdiction in the world, faces the dreaded “valley of death” challenge of supporting scale-up and growth in their ecosystem. Alberta Innovates has utilized a systems roadmap strategy to address this gap that focuses on the ‘mindset’, ‘teamset’, “toolset’ and ‘impactset’ to accelerate growth at an entrepreneur ecosystem level.

Join Alberta Innovates in a Leading in Learning Forum where we and our Accelerator partners will share our real world roadmap for growth journey (which is still in progress). The Forum will cover the four pillars of our roadmap and will feature presentations, panels and masterclasses from the trenches, delivered by content experts from around the world.

The Forum is open to everyone, especially those interested in ecosystem building, including tech investors and government funders and policy makers, innovation ecosystem supporters and service providers, impact assessment professionals, post-secondary institutions and organizations that support scale-up entrepreneurs.
