ATB BoostR Stage – Alberta’s Very Own

Picture this – it’s a crisp October in Alberta, the leaves are changing, you’re drinking a pumpkin spice latte and wearing a cozy knit sweater on a weekend adventure to Banff to learn about some up and coming entrepreneurs in Alberta. The air is crisp from the changing season but also from the nervous excitement from the new business owners. Backstage, some of the most innovative entrepreneurs await their turn to step on the stage to convince YOU that their business has what it takes to make it in our province.

For the first time ever ATB has partnered with Alberta Culture and Tourism to bring the BoostR stage event to Banff.

There are two ways you can get involved:

1. Join the ATB BoostR program as a tourism entrepreneur.

ATB BoostR is a rewards based crowdfunding platform for Alberta entrepreneurs to test their ideas, promote their company and raise money in exchange for a reward. The reward could be a product, service, or a unique experience from their business. ATB will provide advisors to work with them to develop their campaign, and will provide professional coaching.

In addition, four to six entrepreneurs will pitch their ideas live at an event in Banff on October 21, 2017, for the chance of raising additional money. Check out a previous live eventto get a feel of the action! 

If you are interested the signup deadline is September 9th, 2017. You can register at ATB BoostR site. 

2. Attend the live event as guest on October 21, 2017, at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel.

This event will feature the top ATB BoostR businesses from the tourism industry so come network and meet your fellow Albertans who are working hard to launch and/or grow their business, shape our local community, and make an impact in Alberta.

The fun part: YOU get to decide how much money each entrepreneur will win that night!

With your ticket you get to watch local entrepreneurs pitch their businesses live on stage. You help decide, with a cool text-to-vote tool, how much money each entrepreneur wins that night.

Tickets can be purchased online.

Don’t miss your chance to support local, and learn about the most innovative ideas in the Tourism space in Alberta.
