Finding the best-fit talent and securing capital are defining success factors for startups and the Start Alberta database is designed to help.
Tap into our database of more than 1,500 VC and startup professionals in Alberta and apply the search criteria that matter to you the most – from experience and education to the number of deals in their portfolio.
Looking for investors? VCs and angel investors are using the database to search for their next deal. Get discovered with a complete, verified profile that includes your business model, income streams, industries and technologies. Plus, search for right-fit investors by stage or portfolio.
Lots of the heavy lifting is done for you as our database is powered by AI and algorithms to gather data from public sources. But to ensure the data available is as current as possible, startups can routinely review their data to ensure it’s accurate and complete.
Why does it matter? When the data is current and accurate, Alberta attracts more talent, more capital and more policy and community support — and that’s a big win for everyone.
And an added bonus: your verified company could be profiled in Start Alberta’s social media or our monthly newsletters as the next Featured Startup or listed in our job posting roundups.
