Emerging cleantech companies share a common challenge: securing pilot projects with potential customers. To help ventures overcome this obstacle, Foresight has launched the Pilot program. This four-week program helps cleantech ventures perfect their pilot pitch. The course includes:

  • Week 1: Building a business case, different pricing structures
  • Week 2: Developing a strong sales pitch, identifying pilot outcomes
  • Week 3: Technical risk IP issues
  • Week 4: Developing a technology scale-up plan, final pitch presentations

This is the latest problem-driven initiative from Foresight’s Accelerator team. Having worked with 700+ ventures, we are able to identify and respond to their needs. This particular need is backed up by research: the two biggest obstacles to working with industry are industry caution about risk and difficulty accessing the right people in industry, according to our recent Canada Cleantech Survey.

Enrolment has begun for the Pilot program for an early 2022 program start. Apply today.
