TECTERRA’s TAP is designed to assist Alberta entrepreneurs, start-ups and small companies to attend relevant industry events, trade shows, and conferences in support of their geospatial technology commercialization efforts. TECTERRA recognizes that participation at key industry events can be critical to the success in the development and commercialization of a company’s technology.
Standard TAP funding: TECTERRA will cover up to 100% of the eligible costs (hotel and registration charges) of up to two separate events per year, to a maximum total of $20,000 in any one calendar year, per company. All payments will be based on reimbursement basis.
Funding under this program is a non-repayable grant from TECTERRA.
• An individual entrepreneur who is a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada and who has established a business
venture or startup company in Alberta to commercialize geospatial technology.
• A small business in Alberta working on the commercialization of geospatial technology. A general guideline for a qualifying small company is a for-profit company with a minimum of one and no more than 50 full-time employees and annual sales revenue ordinarily not exceeding $5 million. Variations will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Priority will be given to companies participating within other TECTERRA programs, but this is not a pre-requisite.
