Market Launch Program

Get your product to market sooner and de-risk your launch using our 50/50 funding model.

If you are an Alberta start up, small or medium sized company with a recently developed innovative geospatial technology, you may qualify for a 0% interest funding boost to accelerate your commercialization. This loan is only repayable after the project successfully generates revenue.

TECTERRA’s non-dilutive investment is equivalent to 50% of the total launch cost. Funding support ranges from $25,000 to $100,000 per project (based on a 50/50 match).

  • A for-profit company
  • Incorporated and operating in Alberta
  • Minimum of one and no more than 500 full-time employees
