The strength of the lean A100 organization is amplified by our board. We thank each of our board members for their ongoing vision and contribution.
A100 Core Principles
Focus on the founder/operator
Putting people first and developing the full potential in a founder or operator, not just the business.
We’re entrepreneurs too and we’ve walked in your shoes. We understand the challenges that keep you up at night and share real-life advice that we’ve learned the hard way.
An objective, third-party voice to innovation ecosystems and policy makers that can stay true to our objectives and core principles.
Culture of giving back
Every A100 member has received mentorship, guidance or advice over the course of their careers. We pay-it-forward by making ourselves accessible to our fellow A100 Members.
Partner with community
Collaborate with existing community groups to support and complement grassroots initiatives in tech and innovation ecosystems.
The Accelerate Fund provides an alternate source of financing to Alberta-based startups that aren’t yet venture capital ready. The A100 leads the Accelerate Fund Industry Committee, which serves as an objective, hands-on resource to the fund and its portfolio companies. The fund is managed by Yaletown Partners, which reviews applications, performs due diligence, rules on investment decisions and provides ongoing support to portfolio companies.www.acceleratefund.ca
