Oops, We Did It Again…

Virtual Guru’s were in attendance at Calgary’s Start Alberta Tech Awards on Tuesday, November 13th.

Alberta’s most innovative startups were showcased during the city’s largest celebration of technology innovation.

These awards recognize both individuals and organizations for their contributions to Alberta’s innovation ecosystem and those making a significant impact on the province’s tech sector.

And guess what?

Out of the 15 companies, our Founder and CEO Bobbie Racette was chosen as The Most Promising Startup Entrepreneur of the Year!!

The Most Promising Startup Entrepreneur of the Year was awarded to a dynamic early stage founder who deserves to be recognized for their coachability, community involvement and ability to launch a technology-focused company in Alberta. This individual has a pay-it-forward mentality and is always willing to help other entrepreneurs.” Says Kari Gordon, Executive Director of Startup Calgary and Director, Ecosystem and Export Development.

Bobbie was surprised and nearly in tears. Her hard work is paying off and she has her incredible team at head office and VA’s to thank.

“I couldn’t have done this without you all, thank you!”

Selection criteria:

  • Must be an Alberta-based founder or co-founder
  • Must have launched a technology-focused startup within the past three years in Alberta
  • Must be able to demonstrate community involvement

We are all extremely proud and honoured to be on this journey with Bobbie, working hard for something we deeply believe in.
