Cassels is excited to be among the founding members of Platform Calgary’s Pillar Team, a set of trusted partners that will provide professional guidance and mentorship to founders and startups along with financial support for the soon to be launched Platform Innovation Centre.
At Cassels, we strongly believe that Calgary has some of Canada’s most inventive, forward-thinking entrepreneurs, and we believe in the city’s potential to become a global innovation hub. We also recognize that building a community where entrepreneurs and startups can connect, collaborate, and grow is vital to the future prosperity of a city, and our lawyers are passionate about – and committed to – enhancing opportunities for business innovation and success.
When the Platform Innovation Centre opens in the fall of 2021, the Platform Pillar Team will include a full complement of business advisors and services who are committed to making Calgary a global tech hub by strengthening and growing its innovation ecosystem. Founders will have the legal, banking, marketing, accounting, and real estate support they need to take their next steps as they build a successful tech startup.
Says Dr. Terry Rock, CEO of Platform Calgary: “Whenever a tech innovator walks through our door, be it metaphorical or the literal doors of the Platform Innovation Centre, they will have access to everything they need to achieve success.”
Platform Calgary is not just one organization – it is a community coming together to change the game for Calgary. Cassels is proud to be part of this community. Learn more.
