Good episode? Give it some love!
Edmonton's startup community has come a long way in just a few years, and Startup Edmonton recently celebrated its fifth anniversary as a startup hub in the city's downtown. We talk to CEO Tiffany Linke-Boyko about the evolution of Startup Edmonton, starting as a grassroots initiative with two founders in 2009, to its place today as a core piece of the city's economic development strategies.

It was a big week for Edmonton, as the city—and the rest of Canada—cheered the creation of a new research centre from Google/Alphabet-owned artificial intelligence company DeepMind. The University of Alberta in Edmonton has been a world leader in artificial intelligence and, with the new office, it's hoped that more AI talent will come to Edmonton and stay there.
