Alacrity Canada is running a Cleantech Scale-Up program focused on preparing and connecting BC Cleantech companies with international export and investment opportunities.
Alacrity will be working closely with a number of participant companies providing them one on one mentorship with expert advisers, facilitating introductions, assisting in focusing sales and marketing materials and providing global soft-landing pads in regions that have demonstrated a demand for cleantech innovation. Alacrity operates a network of ten offices around the world and this program will focus on countries with demonstrated demand for Cleantech innovation, such as China, Mexico and India.
Alacrity plans on building off its successes from the previous Investor Readiness Program that helped attract more than $220 million of funding to BC from foreign markets.
Potential companies will be assessed by Alacrity to gauge eligibility for the program. The assessment will highlight the companies stage of growth, product readiness for export and scale up, interest in engaging in select target markets, and fit with potential needs identified within the market.
Accepted companies will gain access to one on one mentoring, information on potential opportunities in export markets, assistance in targeted marketing, and introductions for the company in foreign market(s). On top of the matchmaking with potential customers and investors.
If your BC cleantech company is past the prototype stage and has demonstrated a product market fit, the Alacrity team would be interested in connecting. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
Alacrity gratefully acknowledges the financial support of the Province of British Columbia through the Ministry of Jobs, Trade and Technology and the Government of Canada through Western Economic Diversification Canada.
