The Alacrity business model has been proven over a number of years and in a number of global locations. Each regional office, however, operates with a requisite degree of local autonomy and flexibility, including in the way their individual programs are structured. Alacrity Canada is proud to offer and be apart of the Clean Tech Scale-up, E-Commerce, Start-up Visa and Entrepreneurship@Alacrity programs.

Clean Tech Scale-Up

The program is to help scale-up BC cleantech companies by utilizing our global network (10 worldwide offices and growing) to drive export revenue and growth capital. The Alacrity model involves working closely with a small number of companies providing them one on one mentorship with expert advisers, facilitating introductions and provide soft landing pads in regions that have demonstrated demand for cleantech innovation such as China and India. Alacrity has opened affiliate operations in the USA, the UK, France, Turkey, China, Mexico and India, and is in the midst of opening in Austria, Indonesia, Dubai, and Singapore. These locations are selected based on in-region customer opportunities and qualified, local go-to-market partners.

Start-up Visa:

Alacrity Canada is proud to be one of the designated Canadian business incubators/accelerators under the federal Start-up Visa program.

The Start-up Visa program is intended to attract foreign entrepreneurs who wish to establish new, high-growth businesses in Canada that will support innovation and job creation.

Alacrity Canada can recommend and sponsor qualifying entrepreneurs to receive a start-up visa from Citizenship and Immigration Canada. Alacrity Canada has a strict application process and will only be accepting high-growth potential technology companies into one of our incubator/accelerator programs.

If accepted into Alacrity’s incubator/accelerator program, entrepreneurs will receive a letter of support from Alacrity Canada. Entrepreneurs then apply for a Start-up Visa directly to Citizenship and Immigration Canada through their application process where applicants must meet the program’s eligibility requirements.

Contact to apply.
