Post Secondary Institution (PSI) Business Development Support
We are inherently optimistic about the future. Not only because we have the innovation community to make it happen, but the experience to back it up.
Students, staff, and alumni* of Edmonton’s post-secondary schools interested in building a technology-based company can access support through our Business Development Support (BDS) program.
The Post-Secondary Institution (PSI) Program, formerly known as ERIN PSI, is jointly funded by Alberta Innovates, through the Edmonton Regional Innovation Network. Available through Athabasca University, Concordia University of Edmonton, The King’s University, MacEwan University, NAIT, NorQuest College, and the University of Alberta.
*Alumni must be actively engaged with their post-secondary institution or have graduated within six months.
