Alumni Testimonial: Peter Crawley – Founder, President and CEO of PCC Integrate
In the following testimonial, we learn more about the experience of a program participant who has graduated from the Fast Track Program and gone onto continued success.
Peter Crawley joined Alberta IoT at the Fast Track information session held on August 9, 2023. There, we heard about PCC Integrate’s journey through the first-ever Fast Track cohort and the value it added to the organization.
I’m an immigrant to Canada and I’ve been in Calgary since 2005, establishing connections within the tech ecosystem was a priority at the time. Having someone who not only understood the landscape but actively facilitated introductions proved to be invaluable. The events we were able to attend through the program acted as our entry point to industry influencers and the broader tech ecosystem. It’s no exaggeration to say that the introductions opened doors for us, and they came through Alberta IoT.
Alberta IoT acted as our champions in the industry. Their dedication to promoting our ecosystem is evident in every interaction. It’s not just about us; it’s about fostering growth. A prime example of their impact was in helping us fine-tune our pitch. The coaching and guidance we received played a pivotal role in securing our very first lead investor. That moment was a turning point, and it wouldn’t have been possible without the insights gained from the Fast Track Program.
If you’re considering joining the program, my advice is to make the most of the resources available. The one-on-one consultations proved to be massively important for us. They provide tailored guidance that addresses your specific needs and challenges, which is hard to find elsewhere. Our journey is a testament to the doors the program can open and the connections it can help you forge.
