GreenSTEM is an entrepreneurial pilot program for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Masters and Ph.D. graduates. The pilot program enables entrepreneurship and provides a two-year commercialization runway for “deep technology” companies involved in science-based innovation that:

  • is expensive
  • has a lengthy development process
  • is more challenging to commercialize than conventional goods or software

Please note: For the purposes of the GreenSTEM pilot program, “deep technology” is characterized by tangible, science-based innovation with hardware component(s).

The program supports a cohort of entrepreneurially-inclined, technically-skilled participants across the province who are working on technologies with emissions reduction potential. GreenSTEM participants, or fellows, are hosted by one of Alberta’s research universities:

  • University of Alberta
  • University of Calgary
  • University of Lethbridge
