Alberta Clean Technologies Ltd. (“ABCT”) is a private corporation that invests in Alberta-based clean technologies companies in the pilot stage or commercialization stage of their life cycle.
We invest in Alberta-based companies that are seeking to commercialize proprietary technology in the clean-tech sector. ABCT works with Alberta-based innovators to bring their high growth potential clean-tech solutions to market.
ABCT carefully selects deal flow rather than employing a “shotgun” blind pool approach. While ABCT believes in the value of a diversified investment strategy, it does not subscribe to the “laissez-faire” attitude of typical blind pool approach that tend to place less emphasis on thorough due diligence and rely on bell-curve success and failure statistics. ABCT proactively identifies attractive investment companies and supports its portfolio companies to help them to succeed in today’s dynamic marketplace.
