A WINN for Calgary

From robotic loudspeakers to medical imaging to a new process for reusing oil base drilling fluids, Calgary companies are working to bring their research and innovations to life.

Last week, we announced that our federal Liberal government is providing 16 Alberta businesses with $21 million to help them scale up, create jobs, and get their products to market faster both at home and internationally. This investment is coming through our Western Innovation (WINN) Initiative fund. Of the 16 businesses, 11 are in Calgary.

It’s another example of how our government is investing in Calgary in a big way, creating jobs and diversifying our economy. Check out this Sun article or news release to learn more.

The Calgary companies receiving support are Aimsio, ATTAbotics, Enersoft, FLYHT Aerospace Solutions, Kent Imaging, Nanalysis, PK Sound, Quirklogic, Recover Energy Services, Userful Corporation and Veerum.
