Hi there, I'm Ken.

I'm a founding partner at Makespace and Flightpath Ventures, activating startup communities and innovation spaces. Previously, I co-founded and led Startup Edmonton, a community hub for entrepreneurs. I've also led the development of multiple innovation hubs and campuses from initial concept to building operation, including Platform Calgary, Mercer Warehouse, The Public Food Hub, and Elko Engineering Garage at the University of Alberta. As an innovation policy shaper, I led as Director of Entrepreneurship at Edmonton Economic Development, and was a founding advisor of the Startup Canada Communities initiative.



I speak, write and consult on the intersection of technology, entrepreneurship and community building. I often work with startup community leaders, real estate developers, economic development agencies, and university incubators.

To work on something together, book a workshop or talk, or if you have something else in mind, feel free to contact me at ken@kenbautista.com.
