A one-of-a-kind experience, Inventures is a high-energy forum of conversations, convergence and creative collisions that brings together the world’s brightest minds, angel investors, venture capitalists, entrepreneurs and industry leaders.
Launched in 2018, the annual Inventures conference was created by Alberta Innovates to bring the province’s innovation community together around an energizing and experiential learning event, and help innovators and investors connect, foster new collaborations and spark deal-making opportunities. Inventures is gaining global interest as the place to discover new technologies, talent, capital, customers and markets. Inventures 2022 takes place June 1-3 at the Calgary TELUS Convention Centre.
This year, the diverse program features more than 100 sessions and 200+ speakers, including keynotes, expert panels, startup pitch events, networking opportunities and more.
Inventures 2022 focuses on seven themes dealing with issues of critical importance to the future of Alberta, Canada and the world. Each track showcases advanced thinking, business-focused opportunities and global leadership, leading to new insights, new perspectives and new challenges that only innovation can solve.
Futurecasting Work: The pandemic has prompted workers to rethink their careers, work conditions and long-term goals, contributing to the ‘Great Resignation’ trend. Capital follows talent, and talent is prioritizing purpose, diversity and inclusion.
Taming Urban Jungles: Building inclusive, resilient, competitive and sustainable communities is essential for boosting shared prosperity. Urban dwellers and designers are co-creating adaptive technologies for vibrant and livable cities.
Game Changing Health: Technologies that put the person at the centre of the solution are radically transforming how healthcare is designed, delivered and received. Combining the science of data with the art of patient engagement is revolutionizing the way we treat disease and, more importantly, how we prevent it.
Cultivating AgTech: Startups are developing technologies that automate and enhance existing agricultural processes to increase productivity, environmental sustainability and safety. Technology is helping growers monitor and manage farms, improving their ability to identify and address issues early, and allowing smaller teams to manage more acres.
Mission-critical Moonshots: The moonshot mindset is about deploying new methods and disruptive tactics that can help solve society’s biggest problems. A major driving force enabling innovators to tackle moonshots is the incredible advancement in data science and artificial intelligence.
Navigating to Net-Zero: The pathway to net zero requires an unprecedented transformation of how energy is produced, transported and used globally. To dramatically cut greenhouse gas emissions, scientific creativity is generating bundled solutions, including hydrogen, renewables and geothermal. Clean tech is also leading to advanced materials and novel processes that underpin the future low carbon economy.
Redefining Capitalism: As we journey through the ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’, reinventing capitalism with a focus on ‘true value’ will lead to a world where more companies innovate in ways that contribute to society, and capital markets properly value and reward inclusive, sustainable business practices
