Alberta Clean Technology
Calgary Matchmaking Event - June 2019
Entrepreneurs & Innovators, Investors & Corporate Partners:
We are pleased to invite you to apply to participate in the ACTia investor/venture Clean Technology Matchmaking Event on the evening of June 4th, before the start of the Inventures 2019 Conference, in Calgary, Alberta.
The Clean Technology Matchmaking Event is intended to bring clean technology innovators and entrepreneurs together with prospective financial investors and strategic partners - established companies who offer innovators a route to scale-up and market access.
Deadline to apply is May 27th
Who Should Apply to Attend the Matchmaking Event?
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.
How Will the Matchmaking Event Operate?
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 twenty five cleantech innovators and ten 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.
Everyone will be asked to complete a short questionnaire. 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. Further instructions will follow after completing the questionnaire. By looking for aligned responses between innovators and investors, ACTia’s selection team will work to curate successful matches.
Whether an innovator, strategic or investor, please apply for this event by completing a brief questionnaire, by end of business day Friday May 27th.
While we will attempt to accommodate late applicants, we cannot guarantee you a place at the matchmaking session.
Once we have at least 1 match for your organization, we will invite you to register for the matchmaking event on June 4th.
