We are the
in the start-up world
In 2008, a robust ecosystem to support new start-up was founded with Programs like Y-Combinator & TechStars. With Canada alone supporting over 150 major incubators and accelerators, one would assume that commercialization for all start-ups would be an easy path. For chemical deep-tech companies, this is rarely the case because the "app economy" mindset does not work for chemical start-ups.
The high barriers to entry on chemical deep-tech companies, like CAPEX, infrastructure, and a highly skilled and expensive, rigid workforce make the successful growth of a chemical company in Canada extremely difficult. Chemical start-ups measure their product development pathways in years and their expenses in millions.
We believe that chemical deep-tech companies bring some of the largest impacts on our world and will be a key in new clean-technologies that begin to company global problems. That is why we want to fill in our current ecosystem's gaps and provide unique support specifically to deep-tech chemical start-ups. The support will include on-site infrastructure, a flexible, and experienced workforce, and fundraising preparation support that is specific to chemical start-ups.
