It’s easy to read the economic headlines with worry, but a day of exposure to Western Canada’s up-and-coming private start-ups renewed our enthusiasm for innovation and Calgary’s entrepreneurial culture.

This past Wednesday the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE) and TakeStock Alberta organized a showcase where the hottest private companies could pitch venture capitalists and other potential investors. Enthrill, eThor, Exciton and iHeat were some of the impressive businesses facing Calgary and area investing dragons. Du Plooy Law was proud to sponsor the event.

“It’s easy to get caught up in the negativity out there,” remarked Claudius du Plooy. “But there will always be smart people doing exciting things. We’ve got to embrace and support these companies.”

Thanks to all the clients who joined us for this day of work and play. Follow us on LinkedIn for invites to future events.
