Lumiio Heads to SXSW with Alberta Innovates

Lumiio’s leadership team is heading to the SXSW conference in Austin, Texas on March 7 as part of a delegation led by Alberta Innovates’ Alberta Scaleup and Growth Accelerator Program. Over the course of six days, Lumiio’s team will have the opportunity to connect with other global leaders in health and technology and U.S.-based investors through curated meetings, exclusive networking events, and workshops.  

Lumiio is one of 50 companies selected to attend the global conference, representing Alberta’s strengths across many sectors including health, digital technologies, and sustainability. This cohort was selected based on a company’s ability to demonstrate readiness for U.S. investment opportunities.  

“We are thrilled to have been selected for this amazing opportunity to connect with so many important leaders and investors in the American digital health space,” said Lumiio CEO Blaine Penny. “This opportunity is valuable for us as we continue to expand our programs internationally, and we are thankful to Alberta Innovates for selecting us to join their delegation.”
