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.
Finding the right investor is a critical step for a high-growth technology company. We chose Accelerate Fund because of their reputation, their strong network, and the chemistry we felt with the team.
It was important to us to have strong relationships and alignment with local investors who believe in what we’re doing. Accelerate Fund led our pre-seed round and helped attract other angels wanting to invest in us.
With their deep industry knowledge and guidance in supporting our team, Accelerate Fund III is the right-fit investor for us as we strive to build Alberta’s next unicorn.
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.
