Shift podcast: Everything communicates

Welcome to the third and final installment of our Edmonton Startup Week podcast series.

On today’s episode I sat down with the mind-expanding Andrew Goldner from GrowthX to learn about the work he and his partners are doing to help build innovation and venture capital opportunities in Alberta and beyond. (You’ll learn more about the Alberta Innovates Revenue Accelerator in our interview.)

GrowthX is an early-stage venture capital fund, but they do things differently. They’ve sequenced the path to product-market fit to help founders reduce the time it takes to get investment-ready. By working with founders, GrowthX then generates reliable insights that earns them the opportunity to invest.

A few of our many stops along the way include a discussion around what Andrew calls the signal to noise ratio and how founders need to protect their time, the importance of humility and the need to learn from our mistakes, and his mantra that everything communicates.

Happening now until October 22nd, Edmonton Startup Week is a six-day celebration of learning, discussion and networking. Listen to the whole episode now on Shift by Alberta Innovates!
