So You Wanna Be An Entrepreneur? (An Alberta Perspective)

Stephen King Stephdokin CMO4Hire University Entrepreneur Startup Alberta Tech Diversification

Budding entrepreneurs in Alberta can take heart. It is an amazing time in our province as diversification gets some wind in its sales (er, um, sails).

Wow … who’s that guy in the picture? 🙂 Stephen King in university, circa 1983, complete with an Atari 400 (with my first game I programmed called “The Castle of Tragod”), a stereo with both a record player AND an 8 track, a Walkman cassette player and other such artefacts. A young man with a full head of hair, full of hope and 34 years of entrepreneurship ahead of him (I can’t wait for the next 34!). Change. Entrepreneurs ride on the winds of change.

This is from a presentation I did yesterday at Rundle Academy in Calgary. In it, you’ll find:

– The Magic of Hope
– The Reality of Revenue
– The Winds of Change
– The Power of People

With some great examples of Alberta companies that are KILLING it, and a round up of 12 local resources/associations that you can get involved in to help drive your entrepreneurial vision, and 17 examples of future industries you’ll want to be a part of. Enjoy.
