Cleantech Capital Mentorship Program

Accelerating Cleantech Investments in 2018


What does raising $1+ million dollars look like?

Are you an entrepreneur looking to sharpen your pitch and prepare yourself for $1M+ in investment capital? This Cleantech focused installment of the Capital Mentorship Program offers a four-week program for up to 16 cleantech entrepreneurs.

From January 26 through March 7, the Cleantech Capital Mentorship Program is a combination of workshops, seminars, mentor-driven education and peer support that will test an entrepreneur’s investor readiness. Successful applicants will leave this program better prepared for the fundraising process and for deal flow events in Vancouver and elsewhere.

This three-part program begins with an information session about the how the programs works (Strategic Fundraising 101), moves into a three-week intensive workshop series (Cleantech MasterMind Capital Series), and culminates in a highly-curated investment showcase event.
