EDMONTON — On May 12, Edmonton Unlimited unboxed its new home for innovators at 10107 Jasper Avenue. The City-funded organization tries to position Edmonton as an innovation capital, accelerating Edmonton-made solutions to global challenges. To drive sustainable prosperity, advance local solutions for international market share, and attract strategic investment, Edmonton Unlimited has co-created the space for operations, program delivery, public events, hot-desking, and strategic partnerships.

“Now’s a great time to open our doors in the heart of downtown, with a flagship innovation space for all Edmontonians,” said Edmonton Unlimited CEO Catherine Warren. “With input from starting and scaling companies, post secondaries, industry leaders and city-builders, we have built a house for innovators and will collaborate together to make it a home.”

Edmonton Unlimited’s new space at 10107 Jasper Avenue provides a visible and accessible home for Edmonton’s diverse and growing innovation communities. At a time of pandemic recovery, workplace reinvention, and record growth for tech in Edmonton, this 18,000+ square footprint will try and anchor Edmonton Unlimited operations.

“Edmonton Unlimited was created by City Council with a mandate of innovation and ecosystem building. They play a key role in delivering on the City’s Economic Action Plan (EAP), downtown revitalization, net zero and sustainability initiatives,” said Edmonton City Mayor Amarjeet Sohi. “This new home provides a space for innovators to start and scale their companies, ultimately creating jobs and strengthening Edmonton’s economy.”

“We are thankful for Edmonton Unlimited’s support to broker relationships globally, enabling our unique work at Kemet Group,” said Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Inventor, a Licensed Clinical Pharmacist, Pharmacy owner, and Founder, Kemet Group Morẹ́nikẹ́ Ẹniọlá Ọláòṣebìkan. “In my experience this type of support, where people leverage their personal social capital for others, has been missing from STEM. In a city where influence and resources are rampantly transmitted intergenerationally by patronage, I encourage people, organizations and systems to become more intentional about how we broker global connections. We thank Edmonton Unlimited for doing this meaningful work, positively impacting our global business opportunities.”
