Propel Magazine launches in Alberta

propel A new magazine is launching in Alberta at Wednesday’s Moonlight in the Meadows event. Propel Magazine aims to explore how new media, technology, and marketing affect the Alberta business professional.

Magazines such as AlbertaVenture do a good job of exploring the business side of things, but to my knowledge Propel is one of the only local print publications tackling technology:

Technology will be a current running throughout every issue of Propel. What technology is being introduced now and in the future that will change how Albertans do business? How will it affect the bottom line and what new opportunities will it bring? How will emerging technologies affect customers and markets, in Alberta, Canada and beyond?

I wrote a couple of articles for the first issue, so I’m excited to see how it turns out! On the cover is Doug Horner, Alberta’s Advanced Education & Technology Minister. A couple of the local companies featured inside include iStockPhoto and Zigtag.

Propel will be available as a quarterly free-distribution magazine. Starting August 20th, you can find copies at TEC Edmonton, Calgary Technologies Inc., and at a number of participating businesses throughout Edmonton and Calgary. You can also contact Clearpath SEO for more information.
