In Fall 2018, the Canadian Consulates in New York and San Francisco will host some of Canada’s most promising cleantech ventures as part of the CTA Cleantech Program. Participating companies will receive extensive background on accessing the local market, including the regulatory environment, financing, customer acquisition, and investor attraction. The program will culminate with in-market visits to New York, San Francisco, and Denver opportunities to meet prominent US cleantech VCs, angels, family offices and other motivated investors.
Canadian ventures will complete the program with the tools necessary to grow and scale their companies and access resources and customers in the US. Companies will also develop a better understanding of how New York & San Francisco capital markets function, and relationships with local investors.
