Post-Secondary Institution (PSI) Program

If you are a student, staff or alumni* at Concordia University of Edmonton, MacEwan University, NAIT, NorQuest College, or the University of Alberta, interested in building a technology-based company, we are excited to offer assistance through our Executive-in-Residence (EIR) program and Business Development Support (BDS) program!
EIRs offer guidance on the next steps in your entrepreneurial journey and will help you navigate the programming available to support your new company idea.
The BDS program is a free start-up development service available for aspiring entrepreneurs. Successful BDS program applicants will be matched with subject-matter experts who will work with you individually to help address your unique challenges, gaps and will assist you in developing your technology company.
The Post-Secondary Institution (PSI) Program, formerly known as ERIN PSI, is jointly funded by Alberta Innovates, through the Edmonton Regional Innovation Network.
Not sure if this program is for you? Contact us and we will connect you with an Executive-in-Residence dedicated to your post-secondary institution.
