How can we help? This is a phrase you’ll hear over and over again in Edmonton. Helping others succeed has always been our way. Our city is perfectly-sized so you won’t get lost in the crowd. And this will help you build a network of useful business connections – real connections.

Our Business Development Team can give you single-window access to the best resources to help you grow your business from Edmonton.
By talking to some of Edmonton’s most successful companies and connecting with our growing new businesses we aim to:

  • Understand and help mitigate obstacles to growth from Edmonton.
  • Develop business programs that can help you scale your business more easily.
  • Share ideas on how we can bring new business ideas to this city, or find new ways of doing business differently to capitalize on underutilized or poorly-used spaces.

Connect with real people that can help you now.
