Alberta Innovates Grant Program

Through Alberta Innovates, the province of Alberta provides funding for small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to quickly and effectively bring novel technology and knowledge-based products and services to market. One of the most valuable initiatives available from Alberta Innovates is the Industry Commercialization Associates Program, created to provide financial support for employees with expertise in these areas.

Approved businesses can receive up to $105,000 in funding to employ a Commercialization Associate—an industry expert who understands that business’s industry, including advanced product validation, new market opportunity exploration, financial strategies, sales, business development, and more—for a period of one year. The goal of bringing on a subsidized Associate is to help local businesses reduce their risks and time to market, all while supporting economic, social, and environmental growth right here in Alberta.

At SJE Consulting, we want your business to get the maximum possible value out of these (and other!) opportunities. We can help you determine which SME funding programs your business is eligible for, locate qualified candidates for the Commercialization Associate role, navigate the application and reporting processes with Alberta Innovates, and much more.
