Home > Health Tech Commercialization Supports
We support Alberta innovators who are ready to commit to commercialization of their health innovation through funding and connections to partners.
Commercialization of health technologies is a complex, long and capital intensive and risk endeavor. Initial validation testing is just the start of a long journey for most health technologies as they subsequently navigate through rigorous clinical trials, regulatory approvals and additional jurisdictional specific evidence regarding the health economics and cost effectiveness to convince health systems to adopt and pay for it.
The Health Tech Commercialization portfolio is here to help! We specifically focus on supports for Alberta innovators that have demonstrated strong proof of concept through technical and market research and are now ready to commit to commercialization of their health innovation. Funding support programs and connections to partners through the Health Tech Commercialization portfolio, enable Alberta innovators to advance their Product-Market Fit, Business Readiness, Regulatory Compliance, and Product Development. We are here to support innovates to validate their product, secure regulatory approvals, and the evidence they need to access the healthcare market
