Since we joined Foresight, we’ve quadrupled our team within the last year, experienced tremendous growth and successfully raised capital. Their advisors really understand deep tech, and how to align your business models and technology in an emerging market. I was really impressed with Foresight’s structure and follow-up.

This program is designed for early stage companies working in water technologies. An early-stage company usually has some aspects of their company that would be considered incomplete, such as the management team not fully filled out, the product still in the testing phase or patents filed for but not received.

Companies considered for this program have generally gone beyond the ‘ideas sketched on the back of a napkin’ stage and have some initial groundwork and traction, but are needing guidance to get their company full formed and ready to be funded. If that’s you, and you are excited about moving forward and learning with some of Canada’s top entrepreneurs and experts, then we want to hear from you


We read every application in order to make the best decision possible. Once your application has been completed, and if your company meets our baselines, you will be contacted for an in-person interview. During the in-person interview we will be looking to make the best decision possible for your company and Foresight, based on your goals and our ability to add value.

Not all applicants will be selected for follow up but all applicants will be notified of Foresight’s decision, one way or the other. Intakes happen on a monthly basis, sometimes more frequently depending on demand. Time is of the essence with your startup and we are not here to delay any progress.



Please fill out the form below – in full and with as much detail as possible. The information collected in this application is strictly confidential and will be used by Foresight to review your application and determine your suitability for the program.


Once this application has been completed, you will be contacted to schedule an in-person interview.
