We scale clean technology companies in British Columbia by nurturing entrepreneurs and companies that are ready to make their impact global.

What do we do? 

Alacrity Cleantech is a government funded program that helps emerging cleantech companies scale-up and access resources to enable them to deploy their solutions internationally. We ready companies for investments, and steward sales of their technologies and services in international target markets.

We make use of our parent organization, Alacrity Canada, and its robust network of advisors, mentors, and business experts, to identify problems in global markets that can be solved by our portfolio of Western Canadian cleantech companies.

And as we help our portfolio companies tackle both small- and large-scale foreign infrastructure projects, our seasoned team helps our portfolio companies optimize their approaches to customer acquisition, investment attraction, and business modeling.
