Over 220 local entrepreneurs, service providers, investors, and YEG community members gathered at Poppy Barley HQ for the second annual YEG Startup Community Awards show. They came to celebrate some of the boldest risk-takers in town while enjoying many hot foods and cold drinks. This year, we had 12 unique nominations, 800+ Peoples Choice votes, 20+ guest speakers and presenters, and over 3 hours of quality time together. The live show was over at 8:00PM and many guests stayed for the afterparty way past 10:00PM.
