In the largely rural Canadian province of Alberta, a group of young farmers have formed a nonprofit called Green Hectares in 2008. Its mission is to foster dynamic rural economies while bringing sustainability to agriculture. It takes existing and new community-based programs promoting entrepreneurship and smarter farming and shares them over a growing online community. To keep that community growing, Green Hectares operates a mobile computer lab and brings technology, entrepreneurship and agricultural training events to communities throughout the province.

The Recycling Council of Alberta (RCA) is a not-for-profit, non-political organization formed in 1987, and approved as an official charity in 1995. Its members include a wide array of organizations and individuals, including municipalities, corporations, small business, service providers, and non-profits, that come together to advance waste reduction and recycling in Alberta.
The RCA's mission is to promote and facilitate waste reduction, recycling, and resource conservation in the Province of Alberta. Through a consultative approach and support of partners (i.e., government, industry, stewardship organizations and other associations) and additional stakeholders, the RCA will pursue protection of the environment through resource conservation following the 3Rs hierarchy: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Residual Waste Management within a vision of a pathway to Zero Waste. Specifically, the RCA supports the development and ongoing provision of recycling and waste reduction programs in communities with a population of less than 25,000.

Stratagem Innovation Capital Partners is a private equity & venture capital partnership which, through its US and Canadian Funds, incubates innovative technologies to produce impactful businesses in the CleanTech, Life Sciences, and New Media sectors. Our interest extends across all communities, however we have a special emphasis on empowering South Asian Sikh communities in Canada and the US.
We believe the spirit under which innovation is formed is a vital part of its growth. With deep roots originating in British Columbia’s Fraser Valley, what began as a family owned sustainable farm in the 1970’s has evolved into a private equity enterprise that continues to honor its heritage of grass roots innovation, sustainability and technology. We seek out early-stage “blue ocean” ideas that make a measured and positive impact on the world.
Guided by the values and entrepreneurial spirit of multi-cultural Canadians, operating in both Canada and the US, we partner with innovators, government and academia to apply our proprietary Rapid Acceleration Methodology (RAM) to evaluate the merit, marketability, and business value of the latest technologies available to solve the world’s greatest challenges.
