About this event

Startup Grind Calgary is excited to partner with the Energy Disruptors conference for our June 26th event! You may remember the conference for hosting Richard Branson last year in Calgary. This year they have another stellar lineup including Malcom Galdwell- author of thought provoking bestsellers such as The Tipping Point, Outliers and Blink. This year's conference is taking place September 17th-18th.

This includes:

▶ Fireside Chat with Dan Themig: One of the most successful energy entrepreneurs in Canada. As the Founder and CEO of Packers Plus Energy Services he created a billion dollar company by helping to revolutionize the oil and gas sector by creating some of the key technology which made horizontal drilling possible. Recently he co-founded Orong Consulting, a Calgary based tech startup focused on challenging and transforming energy worldwide! Hear about his life story, lessons learned and find out about what happens when you revolutionize an industry!

▶ Fireside Chat with Audrey Mascarenhas: An inspiring figure, she has created a wildly successful business by offering an environmentally friendly alternative to burning waste gas from industrial operations. As the President and CEO of Questor Technology she has scaled her operations from Calgary to the United States, Europe and Asia. Hear about her life story, lessons learned and find out about how you can make the world a better place with a profitable business!

▶ Feature Organization - Energy Disruptors Conference: It started with a conversation with Richard Branson and has turned into one of the must attend events in Calgary. Hear from Graeme Edge about how he created the Energy Disruptors Conference and what to expect at their event in September! Also, there may be some tickets given away for it at this Startup Grind Calgary event...

On June 26th Startup Grind Calgary will be hosting a special event in partnership with the Energy Disruptors conference to help promote their vision of "uniting the entire spectrum of the energy industry around the common goal of accelerating pragmatic and profitable solutions to the world's biggest energy challenges." As Graeme Edge, co-founder of the conference explains in their vision, this is "a time of exponential transformation is a time ripe with possibilities. One where combining sustainable energy with economic growth is possible. We believe leveraging exponential technologies will advance us along the path to solving global air pollution, meeting the increasing demand for energy and eliminating energy poverty. It will shift humanity into the age of abundance, but only if we work together."

As such we will be hosting three exciting energy founders who are or have made significant contributions to this vision. Join us to hear about how these founders created their companies and be inspired around how you can grow your company in this volatile time.
