We're excited to announce we've officially launched an Alberta presence!
Carly Livingstone has been a valuable member of our Toronto-based team for 3 years. Originally from Edmonton, she has officially moved home to launch our very first Alberta office (though, for the record, we already partner with clients all over Western Canada!).
Why’d she make the move?
I've been immersed in the Toronto and Waterloo tech ecosystem for the past 3 years. During that time, I've followed the evolution of Alberta's tech scene. I've watched Alberta take up more space in Canadian tech news coverage, funding announcements, and events. I've also spoken with many leaders in big Canadian tech hubs who would consider an opportunity in Alberta. We are so uniquely positioned with the affordability of our cities, our access to mountains and river valleys, our lifestyle (a little less rat-race, a little more balance) and at the same time, incredible opportunities to grow your career in tech.
We’re strategically positioned from an innovation perspective, too. Energy, climate, food and ag-tech and health-tech are all domains with challenges that Alberta is well-situated to tackle, and they’re high-impact missions that leaders are keen to be a part of. One of the biggest recruiting trends that came out of the pandemic was a shift in motivations. Leaders across the org chart don’t just want autonomy, growth, flexibility and competitive pay. They want a mission they can get behind. It doesn’t hurt either that more and more of our VC partners are looking to invest in these domains!
I'm excited to be a part of the Alberta tech story and partner with startups and scale-ups that are ready to grow their leadership teams.
We can’t wait for this next evolution of Artemis. If you're in Alberta or Western Canada, Carly would love to connect with you!
