Foresight Cleantech Accelerator Centre is a not-for-profit corporation and is British Columbia’s first clean technology accelerator, launched in April 2013. Foresight is funded by the BC Innovation Council to deliver their Venture Acceleration Program (VAP) to clean technology companies in British Columbia. The BC Venture Acceleration Program is a paid, structured, venture growth program designed to guide, coach and grow ambitious early stage technology entrepreneurs and effectively grow their technology ventures.
Foresight is dedicated to providing everything it takes to see our start-ups succeed. Our goal is to help these companies discover their sustainable and profitable business model through the parallel processes of Customer Development and Agile Product Development in a very cost effective manner. We believe startup success requires an ecosystem of mentorship, like minded entrepreneurs and industry specific guidance. During this process we will bring clean technology entrepreneurs together with corporate partners, universities, government agencies and local service providers.
If your team is chosen for the Foresight program you will gain access to industry-leading executives in residence (EIR’S). Your team will have the advantage of learning from our EIR’S experiences, having one on one mentorship meetings, gaining introductions to their networks and extracting suggestions for steps to take in order to propel your company forward faster.
