About Programming: The power of creativity, connectivity & collaboration

Innovation is a disruptive culture that requires players from all major sectors to come together. Entrepreneurs, government, artists, private enterprise and universities all have roles to fill in order to put innovation at the forefront.

As a platform for a growing and inter-generational audience, C-Tribe offers unique, accessible, and thought-provoking programming that draws inspiration from the fast-evolving startup culture.

FOUR DAYS · THREE FOCUSES

MEDITATE · ELEVATE · CAPTIVATE

MEDITATE

We have adopted the belief that meditation is an essential tool for bringing clarity, intention, and performance to every aspect of your life. Before you can truly be connected to others, you must connect with your mind, body, and spirit. This was our way to celebrate human connectivity and to leave our past, present and future concerns in the clouds.

ELEVATE

The fireside chats, panels, and keynotes range from discussions around fashion technology, artificial intelligence, smart cities, and blockchain. Learn what it takes to find opportunities in emerging markets or how to hack your way to success in the 21st Century.

CAPTIVATE

C-Tribe breaks down silos and creates environments to foster growth. Integrated into the festival will be engagements that offer unique and valuable experiences to keep you dialed in.

What our attendees say:

This was my first time in Canada, and thanks to Cappsule it’s one I’ll never forget. Every event had something to look forward to. From the great networking, fantastic speakers, breathtaking views of Edmonton during meditation, to the live fashion show in the evening. This is something I can definitely see growing each year, and being a staple event in the millennial community not only in Edmonton but Canada. I can’t wait to see what happens next”

Anthony F., Investor @ Newark Venture Partners

Edmonton is in a prime position to become a supercluster for technical innovation, especially in ML/AI. I’m excited to not only watch, but also participate as Edmonton’s Innovative ecosystem grows. As the O & G industry continues to decline, Edmontonians must find other ways to drive our economy and continue to be a global force. I believe the best way for us to do that is to foster entrepreneurial spirit and invest in people with dreams of disrupting industries.
