WeWork (Calgary)

WeWork (Calgary)

WeWork's Calgary location in Stephen Avenue Place is host to our hard-working team of volunteers, giving us an essential home base for all the work we do throughout the year.

As a community-focused shared workspace full of progressive businesses and non-profits, there was great alignment to create a partnership where we'll also be helping to activate various parts of the local WeWork community at the Stephen Avenue Place office — which we've already found has lots of amazing people full of awesome ideas!

Visit our Salons @ WeWork page to learn more about special ongoing events we're holding with the WeWork community!

Calgary Public Library

Calgary Public Library

Our deepest appreciation to the Calgary Public Library for their encouragement and ongoing support of our community salon series. Three times a month, nine months out of the year, we hold small gatherings of curious Calgarians at library branches in downtown (New Central Library), the Southeast (Fish Creek Library) and the Northwest (Crowfoot Library). We watch a pre-recorded TEDTalk together, and dive deep into conversation on what it means for us as engaged citizens, and the wider context of Calgary.

Platform Calgary

The Platform Innovation Centre, located in the heart of Calgary's East Village neighbourhood, is a hub dedicated to supporting startups and entrepreneurs at all stages of their journey.

The Innovation Centre provides a single point of access to resources, supports, programming and events to help startups successfully launch and grow their business. And, based on its location beside City Hall, the Central Library, and Studio Bell, home of the National Music Centre — the Platform Innovation Centre will help create connections for local innovators, driving new economic growth and job creation in Calgary.

As a programming partner, TEDxCalgary is pleased to be getting ready to help Platform generate new ideas and tell the stories of some of the emerging innovators from the space whose ideas are worth spreading.

HatchUp Magazine

HatchUp Magazine

It's a wonderful thing to see an idea come to fruition, and we're very pleased to be partnering with HatchUp Magazine as it launches into the Calgary marketplace (and beyond) to explore the intersections between business, entrepreneurship, and lifestyle. As they describe themselves, it's a magazine for the community, from the community.

Being community-based and community-minded ourselves, it was a great and natural collaboration with the magazine team and the wonderful folks behind the idea at HatchUp Media. We're pleased to be a recurring guest columnist on the ideas front, and really encourage our community to embrace this new voice in our midst. Who knows? Maybe you'll be appearing in it or writing for it at some point, too!

Calgary on Purpose

Calgary on Purpose

Special thanks to Calgary on Purpose, our event partners for the ENGAGE: Intentionally Salon. They are a group of Calgarians interested in what makes a ‘successful’ city, and are engaging people from all walks of life to join that conversation. As a citizen-led platform, their mission is to increase transparency, build trust, and facilitate inclusion. They believe that every individual has the power to shape Calgary’s future.

Hidden Story Productions

Hidden Story Productions

An event like ours lives on beyond the day through the recording of the talks and their publication to the TEDx YouTube channel. That just wouldn't be possible without the amazing team at Hidden Story Productions, who have been lovingly recording our talks for most of the last decade. Chris, Martina, and the entire team are true craftspeople when it comes to the camera, and we owe them a debt of gratitude that goes beyond words.

MySimplifyCoach

MySimplifyCoach

Having a professional coach on board as an ongoing partner is always a benefit to an all-volunteer organization like ours, especially when it's the dynamic and always-practical voice of Marcel Hertzfeldt that's involved. He is our super-hero Chief Operations Officer by night (and many times by day!), and keeps us on track with a smile and sounds words of advice.
