Partnership creates new investment opps for Calgary’s tech sector

National Bank of Canada and Platform Calgary have announced a new strategic partnership which they said will focus on improving the connections between investors and Calgary technology startups.

As part of the agreement, National Bank is committing $380,000 over four years to establish the National Bank Investor Hub, located at the Platform Innovation Centre, and will also become a core partner of the Platform Pillar Team.

The latter is made up of a group of professional service providers who act as mentors for entrepreneurs growing their businesses.

According to a release, the investor hub will drive faster connections between investors, founders, ideas, and capital, “decreasing the time required for the startup to build interpersonal connections with investors before the need for capital is urgent.”
