We scan the horizon for possibilities, then design and tailor programs to address existing and emerging provincial opportunities and priorities. Our program investments span the innovation continuum – from innovative ideas to development and testing, through to full scale commercialization.

We “de-risk” innovation

Innovation is risky by its nature. Few ideas are immediately scalable, profitable, or even useable. So, our support at the early stages is vital since others are often unwilling or unable to assume the financial risk.

We take a long-term approach because innovation investments often don’t pay off right away. We look ahead to take steps needed to build a healthy, sustainable and prosperous future for Albertans.
