Our members invest capital and expertise primarily in these sectors:
Information and Communications Technology (ICT)
Clean and energy technologies
Agriculture/bio and life sciences.
On behalf of our members, we generate opportunities, events and programs that create:
Dialogue among our members, and between the VC community and related industries and economic sectors.
Networking at numerous VCAA events that are designed to facilitate introductions, connections and greater deal flow among VC industry players and related industries in Alberta and across Canada.
Advocacy of the critical role that venture capital plays in the Alberta economy. On behalf of our members we converse with government officials (municipal, provincial and federal), regulatory bodies, media and others so that they understand the importance of what we do and can make informed decisions that nurture the health of Alberta’s VC industry.
Professional development is an area of increasing focus. We produce events and programs through which our members expand their knowledge of VC industry trends, issues and emerging research.
