What a year it has been. 2021 has been filled with change, and we are so happy that you were all a part of it. We wanted to take this opportunity to reflect on the last year. While 2021 was not what we expected, great things came out of it.
2021 brought a lot of success for Launchpad. In February, we had the honour to welcome Christie Rodrigues to the team as director of operations. She hit the ground running, and took Launchpad to new heights. Her drive, passion, and attention to detail allowed us to obtain new partnerships and larger cohorts. Having her on the team has been highly beneficial and we are very lucky to have her.
When we started 2021, we had a vision to make Launchpad an even better program. As everything was online due to the pandemic, we had to ensure we were offering quality regardless of what landscape we were operating in. This was our mission, and based on the feedback of our students, we succeeded.
At the end of the day, we want to see success in the tech industry. It can be a daunting industry to join, but it is the future of Calgary. We aren’t the only ones who see the importance of tech in Calgary. This is why we formed partnerships with FinneyTaylor, Immigrant Services Calgary, and Windmill Microlending, just to name a few. These partnerships have allowed us to bring greater success to the tech industry.
Vince O’Gorman is a visionary that is changing the industry. He brought Launchpad to fruition after seeing the challenges seen in recruitment. Launchpad is here to serve the industry as a whole. We cannot wait to see where 2022 takes us. If it is anything like 2021, we can expect a wonderful year.
We are so thankful for all of you. You have allowed us to do what we love in supporting the tech industry. We want to wish you the happiest of holidays and a wonderful new year. We will see you all again in 2022!
