Alberta Central, alongside our member credit unions, knows the value of small businesses. That’s why we created the Big Future Innovation Grant, awarding two Alberta-based businesses $25,000 each to support growth and encourage innovation. Winners will also receive a four-hour business planning workshop from Stack’d Consulting.
Congratulations to our 2021 winners, PainWorth and Advance Harvest!
The Painworth app helps people, lawyers, and insurance professionals easily calculate, manage, and settle personal injury cases in a quick, accurate way. This lets all the parties involved (especially claimants & insurers) avoid the stress, time delays, and unnecessary expenses typically associated with taking things to court.
Painworth allows Canadians to make informed decisions as to whether or not they want to or need to retain a lawyer or if they would like to try represent themselves instead. PainWorth even gives claimants some of the tools they need to represent themselves.
Building from aeroponic systems pioneered by NASA, AerOrganic is the most advanced indoor vertical farming technology on the market. Advance Harvest’s AerOrganic system grows plants on an engineered vertical wall using advanced LED lighting technology and a patented low-pressure emitter that creates a nano-cloud (very fine mist) of water and nutrients that is applied automatically to the root and leaf zones at specified intervals. The nano-cloud penetrates the roots and leaves, providing unparalleled nutrition to the plant.
