The Road to Banff Venture Forum (RTBVF) is a unique opportunity for CapitalRoad’s partners to enable their leading, early stage companies to participate in Canada’s largest, access-to-capital program. The RTBVF is part of a national strategic campaign to build awareness, participation, deal flow and greater investment opportunities at the Banff Venture Forum, Canadian Financing Forum, and PROPEL Energy Tech Forum to further enable the development and participation of smaller technology companies and investors in the annual program of events. 

As a means to further engage early stage Canadian entrepreneurs, and ultimately introduce these companies to access to capital issues and approaches, CapitalRoad has developed strong regional partnerships across Canada to create links with local pitch competitions and other regional activities that complement existing CapitalRoad programs. This initiative, by delivering a national scope program in cooperation with leading regional partners, seeks to develop mutually beneficial program opportunities with various partners, including leading technology commercialization not-for-profits, industry (sponsors and investors), Angel groups and government organizations.


The CapitalRoad Ambassador Program is part of a national strategic campaign to build awareness, participation, deal flow, and greater investment opportunities at CapitalRoad’s Forums. It facilitates the participation of a broader geographical range of technology companies and investors in the annual program of events. This Program offers a unique opportunity for key stakeholders within the investment and technology communities to enable their early and growth stage companies to participate in Canada’s largest access-to-capital program.

Key value proposition for Ambassadors:
- Place high growth potential companies from their network on a national stage in front of the highest caliber venture capital, venture debt, and other private equity investors along corporate venture groups from top North American strategic acquisition companies
- Receive individual and organizational profile on the Forum websites and print programs
- Leverage the Forums as a means of furthering the mandates of their respective organizations

The key objective of the CapitalRoad Ambassador Program is to provide a clear, simple path for ogranizations throughtout the Canadian tech commercialization ecosystem to participate in Canada's largest program of access to capital events. To learn more about the program, please contact:
