Local Government Open to Experimentation

How can Calgary open our infrastructure to foster and enable an ecosystem that supports innovative thinking and creative solutions?

Why is this an ambitious idea?

We need to support existing and attract entrepreneurial companies that require this kind of innovative ecosystem in a cohesive manner. There are a few entities in our community striving for this already, but how can we "turbo boost" this innovation?

How do we measure the effectiveness of this idea?

Enabling a creative and innovative ecosystem within our community could boost our economy, create jobs, support existing companies in testing and trying solutions and draw outside companies to land here.

How is this idea attainable through the use of technology or data?

This is more about setting up the foundation to use technology and data to further fuel our community. Living labs across our city could provide many opportunities for companies to demonstrate and test their products (both physical and digital).
