We would like to extend a special thank you to the sponsors of the “Flowing Investment to Scale Clean Technology” workshop at GLOBE Capital 2019: Foresight Cleantech Accelerator Centre, Royal Bank of Canada (RBC), Emissions Reduction Alberta (ERA), and the Canadian Commercial Corporation (CCC).

This report combines the pre-briefing provided to the workshop participants and the discussion and proposals put forward at the workshop. Participants considered the challenges associated with scaling and growing cleantech companies in Canada, and enabling their export strategies. By bringing together the spectrum of investors—such as pension funds, commercial banks, family offices, and VC/PE firms—as well as governments and established cleantech companies, we hoped to: (1) create a common understanding of the barriers and gaps to scaling up clean technologies, and (2) co-create possible solutions that participants could potentially pilot.
