“YYC Tech Gives is the collective effort of Calgary tech companies ranging from small startups to big multinational corporations. This year, 24 organizations came together.” –TechVibes
As a start-up, Vivametrica was happy to be part of this year’s YYC Tech Gives initiative, which raised a total of $184,815 for the Calgary Food Bank. This amount contributed to the CBC Calgary’s annual million-dollar fundraiser on Thursday, December 18. Calgary’s Mayor Naheed Nenshi was at CBC that morning and later tweeted about the contribution.

YYC Tech Gives and Vivametrica
If you’ve ever worked for a start-up, especially in it’s early years, you know what it’s like to work in a lean organization with limited resources. This year, Vivametrica was introduced to YYC Tech Gives through a friend of the company, Kerri McGovern. It was a week before the Spam Cup, but we managed to get the majority of our team out to the event. We didn’t know what to expect when we arrived at the food bank that morning, but we ended up having a blast! A great team-building event that got the blood rushing at 7am in the morning.
