Calling all Alberta energy entrepreneurs. We need you and your ideas!
What is ATB BoostR?
Alberta BoostR is a rewards-based crowdfunding platform from ATB Financial designed for entrepreneurs and small businesses in Alberta. Through Alberta BoostR, businesses can raise money, test ideas, and gain exposure and market insights from the “crowd” in exchange for a reward – a product, service, or fun/unique experience.
The Energy Futures Lab is partnering with BoostR to help launch initiatives and businesses that move us toward Our Shared 2050 Vision for energy in Alberta.
Why initiate a BoostR Campaign?
- Fund raising: an average successful BoostR campaign usually raises between $10,000 to $20,000, and a few campaigns have hit $50,000.
- Exposure: the campaigns will be promoted through the online BoostR platform, newsletter, and social media community.
- Corporate Engagement: BoostR will be a great opportunity for the corporate world to learn about your work.
- Professional support: access an ATB advisor who will help you prepare your campaign.
