“As Canada’s largest cleantech accelerator, Foresight has supported more than 750 Canadian cleantech ventures,” said Foresight CEO Jeanette Jackson. “We know that Canada punches above our weight when it comes to climate technologies and that many of these ventures are connecting to global markets and investors to scale. But these stories are not widely known. The Foresight 50 seeks to change that. I call on all  investors to meet the Foresight 50 and lean in to support their growth!” 

The Foresight 50 is supported by Gowling WLG and Clean50. Foresight also received funding support from the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC IRAP).
