Managing Director

Sydney Kjellander is dedicated to supporting the growth of Alberta’s Clean Tech Sector through her role as the Managing Director of ACTia. A keen strategist and collaborator, she leads the operations team at ACTia and is known for the development of their highly successful matchmaking events that have generated almost $18 million in potential deal flow for Alberta’s cleantech ventures. She has worked globally across multiple sectors and has a hands-on and diverse background – from field research in the Arctic, to business management and contaminated sites consulting. She was also the project leader of the popular Alberta Cleantech Ecosystem Map, which provides a clear path for investors to discover Alberta’s cleantech opportunities, and for startup companies to access funding and navigate industry resources.

Sydney has an MBA in Entrepreneurship and a BA in Geography, both from the University of British Columbia.
