Who We Are


EACOS is an advocate for Edmonton’s tech-enabled startup community. We are comprised of 13 individuals from scaleups, startups, seed companies, students, and investors. Our mandate is to be a voice for our peer-startups, activating and aligning resources with the needs of our technology community at large.

We will do this by encouraging results-based strategies, engaging with our entrepreneurial community, and helping articulate the needs of Edmonton startups to decision makers. We strive to be trusted advisors to Edmonton’s startup ecosystem of funders, startups, scaleups, institutional support, and government.
