World-class impact

Companies started in Edmonton have demonstrated a reach across the globe

Innovation through the decades

Intuit Office


Edmonton’s innovators, inventors and entrepreneurs are making a global impact; from building a top 10 global architecture firm in the 60s (Stantec) to establishing North America’s largest chain of specialty running stores in the 80s (The Running Room), Edmontonians have always punched above their weight.


More success stories include: developing Canada’s best-selling financial and tax software (Intuit); establishing two of Canada’s leading telecommunications companies (TELUS and Shaw); and developing the most comprehensive and frequently visited website for investor education (Investopedia).

And prosper

We also lay claim to Canada’s largest provider of online training, testing and certification (Yardstick); have collected Orders of Canada for our game development skills (Dr. Ray Muzyka and Dr. Greg Zeschuk, BioWare); helped online retailers get more bang for their buck (Granify); and allowed Internet users to register for a website through a social media account (LoginRadius).
