Alberta Investing in STEM Graduates that are creating New Technologies

The Government of Alberta is aiming to bring the best and brightest to the province, by investing $20 million in grant programming to support STEM graduates creating new technologies.

The funding will support graduates from science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines in post-secondary education to pursue entrepreneurship, develop business skills, and commercialize innovative technologies.

The Innovation Catalyst Grant (ICG) program, promotes collaboration between post-secondary institutions and industry to help participants develop skills, talent, and partnerships to attract investment and commercialize students' research.

The program is a key initiative under the Alberta Technology and Innovation Strategy with the ambitious goals of creating 20,000 new jobs and seeing Alberta’s tech companies generate $5 billion more in annual revenue by 2030. The program provides two years of funding for participants to develop their start-up companies.
