Alacrity Canada Unveils AI Commercialization Accelerator Program

Amplify AI Program launches at Alacrity Canada

VICTORIA, British Columbia, December 14, 2020 — The Alacrity Canada Amplify AI BC Program is seeking BC-based artificial intelligence technology companies that are ready to expand and grow their business.

Launching a brand new artificial intelligence program, with support from Scale.AI, Amplify AI BC is a supply chain commercialization, marketing, and sales acceleration program based in BC. While there are numerous programs and grants dedicated to building new technology, Amplify AI focuses on marketing and selling the technology to increase revenue opportunities for companies. 

That is where Alacrity Canada’s Amplify AI BC program differentiates itself. Alacrity Canada will focus on companies that solve supply chain problems and that have reached the development stage of discovery, validation, efficiency, and scale to join the program.

“Our goal is to help build revenue both domestically and globally for AI-driven companies based in BC. With a focus on commercialization, digital marketing, and business development, we will use our proprietary demand-driven innovation model to support the growth of these technology companies.” 

Richard Egli, Managing Director, Alacrity Canada

Designed to increase sales opportunities through various digital marketing strategies, Alacrity will pair each program-approved company with a digital marketing agency.

Alacrity will also provide guidance around go-to-market and commercialization strategies, investor readiness setup, mentor and advisor introductions, and access to our Digital Marketing Bootcamp course resources.

The program’s overall impact and purpose are to increase the Canadian AI ecosystem’s competitiveness by becoming a thought-leader and global AI technology provider. The benefits will include job creation and skills development, new markets identified and entered, the development of new technologies, and increased revenues into the Canadian AI sector.
