In 2016, SDTC began hosting its annual Cleantech Leadership Summit. The summit successfully convenes cleantech CEOs, investors and public-policy makers. The annual summit is an invite-only event that tackles the cleantech challenges of the day in its effort to build a more robust and competitive cleantech ecosystem. It is an opportunity for cleantech leaders to think and learn together; to catalyze the dialogue that will result in a Canadian cleantech advantage and a global-leading, innovative Canada.
Thank you to everyone who joined us on May 3rd for the Second Annual SDTC Cleantech Summit. The day was an overwhelming success with participants including CEOs and senior leaders from SDTC portfolio companies.
The theme of this year’s Summit, Moving from Invention to Innovation: Getting to Scale was prominent throughout each of the sessions. It was clear from the panel discussions and the commitments in Budget 2017, Canada is focused on innovation. Panellists from the federal government and agencies shared great insights on the recent budget commitments and how they are working to put these investments to work to support cleantech companies on their respective paths to commercialization.
