“I work with really bright technology entrepreneurs seeking investment. They will tell you about their dreams, how their technology is going to change the world … and in some measure, investment from the Accelerate Fund can help them achieve part of their dream. Alberta is made up of people that cut their own path. My goal is to them do that in the technology space.” – David Edmonds, Accelerate Fund II supporter, A100 Industry Committee Chairman.
