Alberta Accelerator by 500 Reveals Batch 4

500 Global

Alberta Innovates, a Calgary, Canada-based company working for innovators in all the sectors of the economy, and 500 Global, a multi-stage venture capital firm, revealed 20 startups that was part of Batch 4 of the Alberta Accelerator by 500.

Through the Alberta Scaleup and Growth Accelerator Program, the Alberta Accelerator by 500 Global, in collaboration with the three other accelerators in the initiative, has supported a total of 65 homegrown Alberta-based companies in two years.

Twenty early-stage startups attended a rigorous 12-week program on best practices for building successful startups, which included working with mentors on segments ranging from running rapid growth experiments and holding customer discovery interviews, to testing product-market fit and fundraising.

Batch 4 of the Alberta Accelerator by 500 program culminates with Demo Day on October 5th, in Calgary. It will be held in-person and streamed via webcast to a curated audience of industry leaders, ecosystem players, and 500 Global network partners. They will hear presentations from a diverse group of startups hailing from Alberta, British Columbia, Quebec, Mexico, the United Kingdom, and the United States, that are building the next generation of companies in sectors such as fintech, proptech AI, and more.
