Foresight Canada

Foresight is Canada’s cleantech accelerator. In collaboration with our Helix 5 partners – innovators, industry, investors, government, and academia – Foresight is relentlessly driving cleantech innovation in Canada.

Our audacious goal is that Canada be the first G7 country to reach net zero. Our mission is to accelerate the growth and impact of cleantech ecosystems across Canada to achieve deep decarbonization and net-zero climate targets through problem-driven innovation.

We offer a comprehensive Acceleration ramp to help entrepreneurs launch and scale their cleantech ventures, connect ventures with industry through Innovation Challenges, and engage a wide network of investor firms through our various access to capital programs.

Through our sector-based approach, Foresight Canada brings the cleantech industry together to accelerate the scale-up and adoption of innovative solutions that enable Canada’s transition to net zero.

We offer a host of sector-specific networks, including for agriculture (agriNEXT), circular and bioeconomy (bioNEXT), built environment (buildNEXT), carbon capture, utilization, and sequestration and carbontech (carbonNEXT), energy (energyNEXT) and water tech (waterNEXT). More to come.

We have a strong history of strategy, ecosystem mapping, and partnership building that positions Canada as a global leader in cleantech innovation.
