Alberta Tech Roadtrip to Menlo Park

The Alberta Government is taking their Tech Show on the road and hosting a seminar on technology commercialization and cross border partnerships in Menlo Park next week.

Over the past two decades Alberta has invested significant resources in its education system, research infrastructure and people to create a diversified knowledge-based economy, based on the foundation of the oil and gas and agriculture sectors. The objective is to foster a culture of innovation, generate new ideas and approaches, attract leading thinkers and create value.

This luncheon, with a keynote speech by the Honourable Doug Horner, will provide investors, researchers and companies an introduction to new government initiatives in technology commercialization and to business and partnership opportunities in Alberta.

Presenters include Consul General of San Francisco Marc LePage, The Honourable Doug Horner, Minister, Alberta Advanced Education and Technology, Shawn Abbott, Managing Partner of iNovia Capital, and Steve Slupsky, Co-Founder and CEO of Scanimetrics Inc.
