Applications Open for Earth Tech 2020


The Centre for Social Innovation’s Climate Ventures, in affiliation with the Social Innovation Institute, is recruiting now for the first cohort of Earth Tech: a six-month accelerator built for those working on freshwater and climate technology solutions that have the potential to positively and significantly impact communities and ecosystems across Canada.

With the support of the RBC Foundation and Bullfrog Power, and the expertise of WWF-Canada and top advisors, this program will help startups and nonprofits validate their solutions, advance their technology, grow their revenues, and create meaningful impact.

Applications to be a part of the first cohort in Toronto close October 25, 2019, and selected finalists will be invited to pitch in person in November. The program will kick off in January, 2020.
