Our story

wunmi

In 2019, Wunmi Adekanmbi took her first steps into Alberta’s dynamic tech landscape, unaware of the remarkable journey ahead. She discovered a vibrant, innovative community driven by the principle of giving first. Though she felt embraced, she also recognized that she wasn’t explicitly invited.

Despite the warmth and support, Wunmi recognized the need for greater diversity. So, she extended a heartfelt invitation to immigrants like herself — founding Immigrant Techies Alberta.
