Funding for Alberta startups

Accelerate Fund supports the growth of early-stage Alberta technology companies with a venture capital fund that matches angel investment. We are currently seeking qualified companies for the $23-million Accelerate Fund III. The original $10-million Accelerate Fund I and Fund II are fully invested in these forward-looking businesses.

Learn About The Fund

Pharmaceutical knowledge base to enable advances in data-driven medicine.

We feel it’s important to have strong prairies-based investment as we build our company here. We hope to build another major win for the local tech ecosystem.

Scott Bodnarek Co-Founder and CEO at KiwiMe, formerly of SkipTheDishes

Some of the greatest value we get from the Accelerate Fund team is the “sanity checks.” Lots of successful investors in Alberta have a history in energy, fewer have done it in technology. The Accelerate Fund team provides immediate, experienced perspective.

Michael Taschuk CTO and Founder of G2V Optics

We bootstrapped until we needed to fund more rapid growth. We got to know Accelerate Fund in the Edmonton tech community. We knew they were smart, connected, good people with a reputation for growing Alberta companies.

Michael Wilson CEO and Co-founder of DrugBank

We chose investment from Accelerate Fund both for the smart guidance from the experienced team, and because of Accelerate Fund’s strong reputation with other investors. We want to grow wisely, and set the stage for future investment.

Tim Regnier CEO and Co-founder of Smart Access
