Accelerating Cleantech Investments in 2018
Spring is excited to be partnering with the Vancouver Economic Commission, NRC-IRAP, Pangea Ventures and Globe Series. This Cleantech focused installment of the Capital Mentorship Program offers a four-week program for up to 16 cleantech entrepreneurs.

Successful applicants will leave this program better prepared for the fundraising process and for deal flow events in Vancouver and elsewhere.
This three-part program begins with an an intensive 2-hour deep dive into the process of raising capital (Strategic Fundraising 101), moves into an intensive three-week workshop series (Cleantech MasterMind Capital Series), and for a few select startups, will culminate in a highly-curated investment showcase event.
