Yes, Funds Fans, this is a double post day!

Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC) has announced it will be accepting applications for funding from entrepreneurs from September 5 to October 24th, 2012.

SDTC is a not-for-profit corporation created and funded by the Government of Canada to finance and support the late-stage development and pre-commercial demonstration of clean technologies. Through its SD Tech Fund™, SDTC helps companies through the critical juncture when capital and scaling costs become challenges and the risk profile deters other investors.

SDTC supports technologies that address the challenges of Climate Change, Clean Air, Soil and Water, including technology solutions focused on these current priority areas:

  • Natural Resources: Mitigate environmental impacts associated with Canada’s natural resource sector including “green mining”, cleaner fossil fuels and forestry.
  • Clean Energy: Enable cleaner energy production, including natural gas, and improved energy efficiency of transportation, the built environment and industrial processes.
  • Agriculture: Increase yield and improve temperature and drought resistance of agricultural crops and mitigate land-use changes and biodiversity loss.
  • Northern/Remote Communities: Innovative solutions for self-sufficiency in smaller communities.
  • Packaged Solutions: Integrated technology packages that combine one or more clean technologies, such as renewable energy generation, energy storage, and waste and wastewater management.

SDTC will host a series of workshops to guide prospective applicants through the process, ensuring the best ideas rise to the surface.  Potential applicants are encouraged to review the Statement of Interest process and funding requirements.
