Michael Sikorsky is a powerhouse in Calgary’s startup community. Currently, he is the co-founder and CEO, Global of Robots and Pencils, an app development company. Founded in 2009, Robots and Pencils has created more than 250 apps used by 77 million people worldwide. Recognized as a leader, innovator and strategic thinker in the mobile tech space, Michael has received numerous awards and accolades including the 2013 Technology and Communications Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year award.

Michael enjoys passing on his knowledge about technology and startups, and was recently part of the Haskayne Hour talking to a packed house about the importance of inspiring the entrepreneurial mindset. 

We’re very excited to be able to bring Michael back to the university to talk about how to avoid being a “wantrepreneur.” He’ll talk about strategies he’s used throughout his career to test the waters before fully committing his resources to a new idea and how to avoid falling into the trap of blindly believing that what you are creating is something that people truly want.
