Scaling cleantech in BC
The Alacrity Cleantech Program is particularly focused on helping BC-based cleantech companies enter Mexico, Singapore (ASEAN), India, and Northern Europe. With our support, Alacrity Cleantech portfolio companies learn how to navigate long sales cycles and find suitable international customers, integrators, investors, and strategic partnerships. We support our portfolio companies as they scale-up and compete on a global scale by also helping them connect with investors, governmental entities, and peers at home in Canada.
Financial Due Diligence
Enabling your advancement
The Cleantech Program fills a significant gap in the supports offered to cleantech companies in Canada. Through our network of in-market advisors in our target markets, we make it easier for cleantech companies to start selling internationally so that they can take full advantage of the work they’ve done developing a unique offering.
The Cleantech Program is designed to flexibly serve the needs of all of its portfolio companies. Our Team is always looking for new suitable portfolio companies and begins the process of bringing on a new portfolio company by performing a company assessment. If the company is a fit for our portfolio, we execute onboarding and our Cleantech Team then gets acquainted with the company’s business model, goals, and existing growth strategy. Once that understanding has been established, our cleantech team gets to work providing support and services to enable the company to enter new international markets and accelerate its growth.
