ATB Ventures fuels the creativity behind technologies keeping ATB, its customers and Alberta at the forefront of innovation. Underpinning ATB’s edge strategy, our experience and collaborative team structure ensures that we’re investing resources and capital in the right opportunities at the right time. From building big ideas and turning them into a viable reality, to partnering with and investing in technology startups, ATB Ventures provides a spark to courageously advance our future.
We see the future differently. As a place where innovation can unite us, not isolate us. As a land of abundance, not scarcity. It’s where the potential lives, possibility hides, and the best ideas grow. We believe the unknown is our last frontier.
Inventing the future.
Since 2018, ATB Innovation has grown to a team of 30+ researchers, technology practitioners, data science experts, storytellers, and business development professionals who all share a common passion for technology. We harness emerging trends to disrupt markets and create entirely new ways to serve our users and customers.
Developing the companies of tomorrow
Through our corporate venture capital team, we are staying at the forefront of innovation by channeling our domain knowledge and investment expertise into digital and deep technology startups that help advance ATB's strategy.
At ATB, we know that it takes more than funding to build a company. We work with our portfolio companies, providing advice, and expertise to help them succeed.
