TEC Edmonton is a business accelerator, helping to transform technologies into business opportunities. A unique not-for-profit, TEC Edmonton is joint venture between the University of Alberta and the Edmonton Economic Development Corporation (EEDC).

We help entrepreneurs across four integrated areas of expertise:

Business development: we help early-stage companies grow by assisting in areas of business ranging from market research to business planning to product development.

Funding and finance: we help you make sure you’re investment-ready, then help you find the right funding and financing to accelerate your business’ growth and improve your business.

Technology management: we help determine if your invention has commercial potential and can be copyright or patent protected. Once protected, TEC can help you determine your best route to commercialization. We also provide specific services to researchers at the University of Alberta.

Entrepreneur development: Entrepreneurs often need knowledge and training outside of conventional schooling. We provide seminars, workshops and advisory sessions with experts to improve your business.
