Clean Tech Ventures, Investors & Strategic Partners

ACTia and SPARK 2019 are pleased to invite you to submit your application to attend the ACTia investor/venture Clean Technology Matchmaking Event on Oct 28th, from 3:30pm to 5:30pm, directly before the opening reception of the ERA Spark Conference, in Edmonton, Alberta.

The Clean Technology Matchmaking Event is intended to bring clean technology innovators together with prospective financial investors and strategic partners - established companies who offer innovators a route to scale-up and market access.


Who Should Apply?  

  • Clean technology innovators and entrepreneurs who are seeking financing and are ready to make a “pitch” to potential investors and strategics towards gaining the capital and support needed to commercialize their technology and venture.

  • Investors and strategics interested in investing in or supporting pre-commercial, near-commercial or rapidly-scaling clean technology entrepreneurs and innovations.

Event Format

This 2 hour event will seek to connect innovators with potential investors including VCs, angels, banks, private investors, as well as with established companies who offer innovators a route to scale-up and market access (“strategic partners”).

Participants will include at least 30 cleantech innovators and 13 investors and strategics.  Investors and strategics will each host 3-5 meetings at their respective tables.  Meetings

will last 10 minutes. Innovators should come prepared to “pitch” their innovation to at least one prospective investor or strategic.

Application Process

The application form has been streamlined from previous events.  It takes investors and strategics about 5 - 10 minutes, and ventures approximately 10 - 15 minutes to complete.  If you applied for the Matchmaking Event we held in June at Inventures, you can apply using your previous answers. 


Innovators will identify the purpose of their innovation and investment/support needs. Investors and strategics will identify areas of interest in cleantech in terms of theme and state of commercialization. By looking for aligned responses between innovators and investors,  ACTia’s selection team will work to curate successful matches. 


You will have the opportunity to confirm your matches before the event.

Innovators, strategics and investors: please apply by Wednesday October 16th (EOD).


Late Applicants:  Applications received after the October 16th deadline, will be reviewed later in October if there are still meeting slots available with the investors / strategics.  To avoid disappointment, and to have the time to review your matches before the event, please complete the form by Oct 16th.
