Cleantech Forum 2018
Gain profile, meet investors, build your network as part of Canada’s delegation
THE APPLICATION WINDOW IS NOW CLOSED. APPLICANTS WILL BE CONTACTED IN EARLY NOVEMBER
Export Development Canada and the Government of Canada (Global Affairs Canada’s Trade Commissioner Service, Natural Resources Canada, and Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada) are sponsoring a delegation of companies to attend the 16th annual Cleantech Forum, held January 22 to 24 in San Francisco. We invite your company to apply to become part of the mission, building on Canada’s strong presence at last year’s event. The aim is to further elevate the international profile of Canada’s cleantech sector in front of a high-impact audience of investors, customers and strategic partners.
By being part of this delegation you will benefit from tailored support in advance of the mission, helping you optimize business meetings. You will also benefit from the experiences of fellow delegates and have access to a number of cleantech specialists from across key government departments.
We are looking for a mix of cleantech ventures from across the country that reflect Canada’s sector strengths. Priority will be given to both “growth” stage ventures that have a market-ready or near-market-ready product and are seeking Series A or higher investment, and companies that are in commercialization and looking for growth capital.
If selected, you will benefit from:
- Complimentary event registration.
- Pre-event coaching by MaRS Cleantech advisors.
- Support setting up investor/customer meet-ups.
- Access to Canadian-hosted networking event.
- Inclusion in delegation Investor’s Guide.
- A chance to participate as a speaker on conference panels.
- Enhanced profile as part of a highly visible Canadian delegation.
(NOTE: Companies selected for last year’s delegation, or which appear on this year’s Global Cleantech 100 list, are not eligible for complimentary registration or pre-event coaching.)
Other Canadian companies, including those that apply but are not selected, can still receive many benefits if they choose to attend the Forum. These include discounted registration (TBD), access to a Canada-designated meeting room, and on-the-ground support from Global Affairs Canada’s Trade Commissioner Service in San Francisco and staff from Export Development Canada. All Canadian cleantech ventures that attend the Forum are also invited to a Canadian networking reception on the evening of January 24. Information regarding these benefits/events will be provided to all applicants shortly after the conclusion of this open call.
Date: January 22-24, 2018
Location: Parc 55 San Francisco (a Hilton hotel), located at 55 Cyril Magnin Street.
