Scale your business: Build and Expand your Product Development and Manufacturing with SDTC for Sustainable Development Technologies

At Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC), we fund Canadian cleantech projects and coach the companies that lead them as they move their ground-breaking technologies to market. SDTC’s support of cleantech translates into jobs, growth, and export opportunities for Canadian companies, as well as economic, environmental and health benefits for all Canadians. Our funding supports projects through development and demonstration that address climate change, air quality, clean water and clean soil. We fund projects in the Agriculture, Energy Exploration and Production, Forestry, Power Generation, Energy Utilization, Transportation and Waste Management industries. SDTC has funded technology demonstrations that include innovative optical networking technologies to reduce power usage in data centres, new printable lighting technologies that improve energy efficiency, sensor technologies that increase productivity and new material demonstrations in areas that increase performance. In this session David will discuss the characteristics of companies, projects and technologies that can benefit from SDTC funding in addition to the type of support that SDTC can provide.
