The University of Calgary has launched the ScaleUp program, a pilot program that will support Alberta companies that are interested in scaling into competitive global companies. ScaleUp is a nine-month program that will train executive teams so that they are prepared to focus on commercialization and sustainable growth. The aim is to give companies the knowledge needed to grow five times their revenue, capital, or team within 2-3 years after completing the program. The pilot focuses on cleantech companies in energy and agriculture. “[Alberta has] the infrastructure to support scale, and some of the largest funders of cleantech research and projects are from traditional energy companies, many of which are headquartered in Calgary,” said ScaleUp director Hannah Hemphill.
