AIC BIMTECH x Canadian Technology Accelerator
WASTE TO WEALTH PROGRAM
The High Commission of Canada in India launched the second cohort of its Canadian Technology Accelerator (CTA) program in the fall of 2022 and offered a program that provided Canadian start-ups and early-stage SMEs with exposure and access to the Indian waste-to-wealth ecosystem. A cohort of five high-potential start-ups and early-stage SMEs with a focus on cleantech and, more specifically, waste-to-wealth technologies was identified to give these companies an opportunity to immerse themselves in the waste-to-wealth ecosystem in India. AIC-BIMTECH was selected as the Indian implementation partner for the Canadian Technology Accelerator (CTA) 2022 program in collaboration with the High Commission of Canada in India.
The program was designed in a way that helped these companies build on their strengths and exposed them to a wide range of potential customers, strategic partners, and investors. The participants were selected in late July 2022. This selection was made based on their potential in the Indian market, their traction, and their ability to attract potential Indian partners and VCs. Three external jurors and two internal (AIC-BIMTECH) jurors participated in the pitch session interviews.
