New Cleantech Innovation Portal provides access to commercial opportunities for cleantech companies through a virtual marketplace that brings together city-makers, innovators and investors to accelerate the impact of innovation in communities.
Cleantech Commons has launched the “Cleantech Innovation Portal” to help Canadian ventures in the cleantech sector play a leading role in the pandemic economic recovery.
A partnership with Urban Living Futures, the portal is designed specifically to support innovative clean, green, low-carbon, and sustainable companies – connecting them with customers and helping to get their technology solutions to market more quickly.
Cleantech Commons and Urban Living Futures have partnered to leverage ULF’s UPPlift® platform to identify and promote leading Canadian cleantech innovators and expose them to opportunities for growth, scaling, funding, and, ultimately, success.
“Powered by UPPlift“, the Cleantech Innovation Portal provides cleantech, smart city, and smart technology innovators access to commercial developers, asset owners and managers, city authorities, municipalities, infrastructure investors, and program funders seeking green solutions that help them achieve operational savings, improved resilience, and enhanced user experience as part of the post-COVID economic recovery.
“We are excited to partner with Urban Living Futures on this important initiative,” says Martin Yuill, executive director of Cleantech Commons. “The Cleantech Innovation Portal brings considerable value to the cleantech community and creates visibility for, and a better understanding of, the ground-breaking green solutions that are being developed across Canada.”
He says that the portal will help get innovative Canadian cleantech solutions to market faster by supporting smart city and clean technology adoption and growth.
Cleantech and smart city companies are invited to register on the platform.
Ventures that register will benefit from exclusive access to ongoing development opportunities at Cleantech Commons, including calls for innovation deployment, and will enjoy access to programs, technology piloting, pitching, investment, and procurement.
“We are looking forward to seeing Cleantech Commons continue to develop as a significant hub for cleantech innovation and a cluster of high-impact Canadian companies,” says Mikele Brack, CEO of Urban Living Futures. “Academic institutions and technology accelerators are key stakeholders in the innovation ecosystem, and we are pleased that Cleantech Commons has selected the UPPlift platform to manage their innovation community and support the commercialization of emerging Canadian technologies.”
The UPPlift Platform provides registrants with a personalized dashboard to create and update their company profile, view emerging commercial and funding opportunities, and log their progress and achievements.
The platform offers a seamless application process that accelerates their response to a wide range of innovation initiatives and procurement opportunities published on the platform.
