Where to Catch Passportal this Summer

Passportal will be attending a variety of events this summer – and if you’re in attendance, make sure you say, 'Hello!'

Summer is in full-swing as we embark into the second week of July (don’t ask me how that happened), and the crew here at Passportal are soaking up the rays through our enormous windows at the Calgary headquarters, getting ready for a busy season. 

The sun is glimmering, the weather is hot, and the skies are blue; all factors lending the perfect time for the leadership team to get out there and get involved with the IT community. Colin Knox, CEO, and Dan Wensley, President, are due to jet-set all over North America in a variety of events and we thought you ought to know.

Just this past week, Colin attended a government sponsored conference in Canada’s festival capital, Montreal, called Startupfest July 10-14th. Formerly crowned “a music festival for startups” by Reddit Founder Alexis Ohanianis, Startupfest is a networking conference that offers world-class content specifically designed for entrepreneurs, investors, and partners alike. The tech-focused event facilitated the conversation through global giants, such as Facebook and Shopify (even Justin Trudeau), whom delved into hot-topics regarding strategic marketing, business growth, and startup scalability.

Colin got a chance to strongly represent Passportal and it was VERY well received. We have garnered attention of many affluent tech entrepreneurs, and Passportal received many glowing comments of praise and encouragement. We continue to be proud for what we have accomplished in such a short amount of time. Look at us gaining traction all over Canada – go #Passportalites, go!
