Investor Readiness

Foresight’s Investor Readiness Workshop, supported by IRAP, prepares companies for investment and growth. Participants learn to prepare 1-to-3 year financial forecasts, term sheets, and business valuations, craft powerful pitches, understand different investor types, incentives, and expectations, and learn more about advisory boards and exit strategies.

Investor Readiness Workshop is free of charge for Foresight Launch program graduates and for all Canadian cleantech companies.


Pilot provides support and training to help ventures develop their pitch for a pilot project. You’ll  learn about the different tools and skills you need to develop a strong business case that will resonate with customers.

Taking part in a small-scale preliminary engagement will help you evaluate feasibility, duration, cost, and adverse events. The Pilot program will help you advance to this critical stage.

Climate Connections Series

At these 90-minute events, 3-4 industry experts (solution-seekers) give “reverse pitches” to present real-world climate-related industry challenges. Through structured conversation with academic researchers, innovators and entrepreneurs, a deeper understanding of the industry challenges will be unpacked and understood.

Potential solution spaces will be defined and noted so that the organizing team can facilitate follow up 1:1 conversations.
