Become An Active bioNEXT Venture

bioNEXT works with technology start-ups across Canada to increase innovation in our bioeconomy sector to lower Canada’s carbon footprint and become a world leader in a growing, low-carbon, global economy.

As an active venture, there are several pathways of support available to bio and circular economy technology startups, including: 

  • bioNEXT Annual Cohort - Our cohort runs every January to March and includes sector-specific insights into technology needs, end-user and market trends, investor perspectives, and ecosystem opportunities. Leave with a robust understanding of how to succeed in today’s bioeconomy landscape.
  • Executives in Residence & Mentors - Gain valuable “been there, done that” insight from our executive advisors (CEOs/CFOs/CTOs) network who specialize in business and customer needs and commercialization pathways.
  • Innovation Challenges - An opportunity for bioeconomy solutions to meet specific industry needs and land pilot opportunities. This supports ventures to identify market niches, advance to demonstration, engage strategic partners, and showcase innovation.
  • Networking & Showcase Events - Insider-only access to bespoke training courses, relevant conferences, networking, pitch events, and other sector-specific opportunities. 
  • Foresight Community Membership - Access Canada’s wider cleantech community through a dedicated Slack channel and Foresight newsletter, giving ventures access to the latest on ecosystem events, programs, and challenges.

... and more!
