Realize Your Vision for Change 

Earth Tech was a free, six-month accelerator program run in partnership with SI Canada for Canadian cleantech ventures. The program supported them in validating their solution, achieving product-market fit, raising capital, and measuring and communicating their potential impact.

Earth Tech has evolved into an entirely new program, Earth Tech 2050, geared towards startups with the potential to reduce half a gigatonne of CO2e by 2050.

Create, Measure, and Share Your Environmental Impact.

We supported our ventures every step of the way with bi-weekly one-to-one coaching sessions, tailored training, and a cohort of peers building cleantech companies with big potential.

Earth Tech was a phenomenal program and extremely beneficial to our company at the stage we joined. Earth Tech was an outstanding program and I would recommend it to any startup working on climate change or in clean water solutions.
