By designing and delivering impactful programs, providing leading business coaching services, and fostering an entrepreneurial community, we are investing in Alberta’s greatest resource: its people. 

Through coaching, community, and capital, we invest in and support Alberta technology and knowledge-based businesses to help them reduce the time it takes to commercialize their product or service. We want to see our clients scale to new heights to positively contribute to our provincial economy and make it more competitive on a global stage. ​In addition, we help our clients get investor ready and connect with investors that will further support their business growth.  

We support Alberta-based technology and knowledge-based businesses in every corner of the province through the Regional Innovation Network. Connect with your local RIN for more business support.  

If you: 

  • Have corporate operational presence and appropriate Alberta ownership; 
  • Have fewer than 500 full-time employees and less than $50,000,000 in annual gross revenue; and 
  • Are creating a high-potential, data-enabled innovation, digital technology, or a knowledge-based product. 

We might be able to help! 

If you need more encouragement to connect with us, consider that for every $1 of Alberta Innovates investment, our clients generated $6.58. We support over 2,100 Alberta businesses and had active involvement in $21 million in capital raises in 2021. This could be you!
