Saskatoon’s tech industry shines bright! The sector is rapidly growing with many successful start-ups adding to this thriving industry. It is estimated the tech sector has added approximately $2 billion in GDP to the provincial economy, making up 2.4% of total provincial Real GDP.
Tech start-ups can find a home at Co.Labs, Saskatchewan’s first technology accelerator. Co.Labs is a tech incubator that provides all the tools necessary for early stage technology start-ups to grow and scale in Saskatchewan.
