Applexus | February 20, 2023
Applexus, a technology-based company for business consultation and SAP services, has recently announced that it has secured an Investment and Growth Fund IGF grant from the Government of Alberta, establishing its business in Canada. Invest Alberta supported it, and Calgary Economic Development made key introductions for funding application processes.
This investment and expansion will help it to develop new technology solutions, hire and reach with better services. Calgary's graduates will be its team for a skilled workforce with exceptional infrastructure. Being a consulting firm, it spends a lot of money and time traveling to the client sites, so Calgary, an air travel hub, will offer convenient access to its clients from the US market.
Calgary is an affordable settlement place with a strong public education system, a high standard of living with diversity, importance to the quality of life, and being friendly with other communities. It will gain skilled professionals from other places than North America through Alberta's new immigration program for technology professionals.
CEO and Founder of Applexus, Sam Mathew, said, "The IGF grant will allow us to take our company to the next level, help strengthen our presence, expand our offerings, bring new jobs to the region, and positively impact the community. We're grateful for the support of the Government of Alberta as we work to build a stronger and more diverse economy for the state."

CEO of Invest Alberta, Rick Christiaanse, said, "Applexus is a welcome addition to Alberta's tech and innovation sector, and we are excited the company has chosen our province to establish its Canadian headquarters." He added, "This investment in Alberta will help support our local economy through the creation of 125 new jobs over five years while giving Applexus access to the skilled talent Alberta is known for so it can thrive in a rapidly growing sector. The support the company received from the Government of Alberta, Invest Alberta, and Calgary Economic Development positioned our province as a destination of choice and is a tangible example of Alberta's world-renowned 'make it happen attitude' when it comes to global investment."
