2019 Alberta Clean Tech Ecosystem Map
The essential guide to navigating Alberta's Clean Tech ecosystem
How can an entrepreneur find the time to navigate the multitude of programs, services and events that may (or may not) add value to their venture?
With opportunity cost in mind, ACTia has worked with some of Alberta's leading entrepreneurs, concierges and investors to develop this two-page guide to the key resources & services within Alberta's clean Tech ecosystem. We are excited to see it posted on cubicle walls, displayed in gathering spaces, and marked up with notes. We look forward to your feedback, corrections and additions for next year's version.
Good luck on your journey! - Jason & Sydney
We first launched the Alberta Clean Tech Ecosystem Map (The Map) in 2017 in response to a growing call for Clean Tech specific resources to help navigate the ecosystem and to market the Province's programmes.
With sponsorship and support from private and public sector partners from across our community, we invited feedback through a series of focus groups, comments and review sessions to shape a new, easier-to-use format with the updated content you find here.
The new map is now available in the following forms:
Poster: large format poster for display in the offices of accelerators, ecosystem advisors, trade commissioners, investors, and technology validators.
Tear Away sheets: double sided "Tear Away" conceirge maps for distribution at events & conferences, and for use as a checklist by innovators.
PDF: downloadable & printable Two-page PDF with active hyperlinks on all the resources listings and logos.
It is our goal that The Map will help support the growth of the Alberta Clean Tech Sector by:
Streamlining access to funding for new and growing Clean Tech ventures
Increasing awareness of key resources such as service providers & government programs
Highlighting industry partners that are supporting Alberta Clean Technology
Market our Clean Tech ventures across Alberta and beyond
Attract investors and innovators to Alberta
Facilitate research and analysis, to support policy & funding decisions, facilitate job growth, etc.
A note on Errors, Omissions & Feedback
Please note that the status of companies, programs and services is continuously changing. There are also many wonderful programs, services and companies that are not on The Map. We did our best to highlight the key resources we were aware of, within the space constraints of The Map. The Map is a community effort to make sense of our ecosystem, it is not intended to be complete, up to date, or without errors or omissions.
On that note, if you find errors, omissions, or have suggestions for how to improve the next update, we want to hear from you! Please email us your comments so they can be reviewed for the next update.
