Following the community’s Vision 2020 Economic Development Strategy process involving over 250 community and business stakeholders, Fredericton set a vision to become the Startup Capital of Canada by creating a strong and united ecosystem.
Subsequently, Fredericton’s Startup Task Force was formed in order to achieve this goal. As part of this exercise, it combined forces with Startup Fredericton, a grassroots entrepreneur-driven movement dedicated in bringing together entrepreneurs and stakeholders.
In November 2016, Fredericton achieved its vision by receiving Startup Canada’s ‘Startup Community of the Year’ award.
• Connectivity by creating a cohesive startup ecosystem;
• Collaboration through strategic alignment of stakeholders, identifying opportunities for collaboration and avoiding duplication;
• Communication through information sharing.
