Listen as a podcast:

We had the pleasure of attending this year's Launch Party 14, hosted by Edmonton Unlimited as one of their Startup Week events. We were given the opportunity to interview their impressive line-up of founders and supporters, showcasing a wide range of innovative businesses. Edmonton Unlimited's Launch Party 2023 brought together the city's tech community to celebrate and support local startups. From automatic Christmas tree fire extinguishers to sunglass and goggle brands, the entrepreneurs discussed their products and the problems they aim to solve. Edmonton Unlimited’s unwavering dedication to highlighting Edmonton's thriving tech ecosystem and the collaborative spirit that drives its success cannot go unnoticed. With a focus on networking and education, Launch Party provides a platform for startups to connect with investors and raise awareness for their ventures.
