Entrepreneur in Residence

Supporting emerging and established entrepreneurs.

The Entrepreneur in Residence, in partnership with Platform Calgary, aims to support individuals keen to explore business and build skills related to tech and innovation start-ups.

The Entrepreneur in Residence acts as a mentor to emerging and established entrepreneurs, and can offer advice on starting a business, networking, identifying markets, product development, revenue strategies, and more. Connect with them by booking a private meeting, or attending a public program or workshop.


2022 Entrepreneur in Residence was Kevin Franco

During his residency, Kevin supported emerging and established entrepreneurs with questions around managing relationships with staff, customers, investors, partners, vendors, lawyers, the Canada Revenue Agency, accountants, and family.

Kevin's residency has been completed, but he leaves us with this wisdom about getting started in business.
