At a time when climate concerns are at an all-time high in the province, it’s encouraging to see that 16 of Canada’s most investable cleantech ventures are based in British Columbia. The Foresight 50, announced on Nov. 23 by Foresight Canada, recognizes ventures from across Canada and a variety of sectors including watertech, carbon solutions, hydrogen, and renewable energy. They were selected after an open call for nominations based on criteria including investability, potential environmental and employment impact, and probability of success.
The Foresight 50 shines a light on made-in-BC solutions across a number of sectors including:
- Water tech: Innovators like CarboNet are creating solutions to accelerate water recycling. Open Ocean Robotics is providing a new understanding of our oceans with solar powered autonomous boats.
