TECTERRA, a government-funded not-for-profit, is proud to announce LEAP, a brand new program designed to fund the development and commercialization of technologies with the potential to transform an industry.

“Alberta companies are creating innovative technologies that have the potential to significantly alter the trajectory of whole industries or markets,” says Jonathan Neufeld, CEO of TECTERRA, “through LEAP we will provide substantial support for innovative companies with a clear mission, and help them take their transformational technology to market faster so they can effectively compete in the global market.”

TECTERRA provides funding to Alberta companies going to market with their innovative geospatial technologies. With the launch of the LEAP program, TECTERRA will now be able to provide funding for projects with budgets greater than $1,000,000. Alberta small to medium sized companies working on disruptive geospatial technology products may apply for a loan to cover 50% of the development and commercialization costs, to a maximum of $1,000,000 per project.

Loans through the LEAP program are non-dilutive, interest-free, and repayable only after the product generates revenue.

To apply, companies must submit all application requirements via the TECTERRA LEAP program page here.

Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis. Applications for consideration during TECTERRA’s next funding cycle closing in September 2018 are due July 11, 2018.

TECTERRA is actively seeking Alberta companies developing innovative products that include geospatial technology in the value chain. If you are a for-profit company, incorporated and operating in Alberta and you are working on geospatial technology you may qualify for funding.
