About Us

TECTERRA is a government-funded non-profit organization that assists start-ups, and small and medium-sized companies (SMEs) to develop and commercialize technology faster than they could on their own.

Since beginning operations in 2009 through to March 2017, we have committed investments totaling $40M in technology innovation and commercialization projects. These investments have been matched with $28M from industry to generate 337 net-new jobs and $203M in actual economic impact. These same investments are forecast to create over $320M in long-term economic impact for Albertans and Canadians by 2020.

Value Proposition: TECTERRA helps Canadian geospatial technology companies achieve commercial success faster than they could on their own. We invest in product development and commercialization, create new jobs, build expertise in companies, and provide access to technology. We are the only choice for small and medium size geospatial companies (SMEs) that require this comprehensive range of services, efficiently delivered, without giving up control, intellectual property (IP) or equity.
