New Ventures BC 2022 Competition Top 11 Finalist: ACEL Power Makes The Cut

You read that right. And there is a $250,000 cash prize at stake!

We are excited to announce that ACEL Power is among the top 11 finalists in the 2022 New Ventures BC competition powered by Innovate BC.

Know what that means?

This enviable milestone puts us in a unique position to win the $250,000 in cash and prizes that are up for grabs!

Our planet is under immense stress, and it’s cleantech startups like us that are helping to mitigate some of the damage. 

With so much on the line, ACEL Power is determined to make an impact and bring home the prize! 

We are proud to be doing our part in developing electric outboard engines that can make a difference. 

Beating 200+ Companies is No Easy Feat

The New Ventures BC competition has been around since 2000. In that time, it has become one of North America’s most highly respected startup competitions. 

This year, over 200 companies from across British Columbia competed for a chance to win the coveted prize.

Consequently, to be selected as one of the top 11 is an incredible accomplishment in and of itself. 

We can attribute our success to innovative products developed by the excellent team of marine engineers who are committed to making a difference.

If you work at any marinas in British Columbia and elsewhere, you’d know much damage fossil fuels can do to the environment. 

Not only is there an oil spill risk, but also the pollution from boats departing and arriving can be harmful to marine life.

We’d all agree that fun time with family while boating is often disrupted by the loud noise of combustion engines. Also, fishermen must constantly deal with the smell of gas and spend big to maintain their petrol engines.

We have examined all these and more to develop a product that will mitigate some of the damage done to our planet.

We are shaking things up and changing the way people think about boating. Our cutting-edge electric outboard engines are paving the way for a renewable future. 

Currently, we are the only manufacturer producing 450 HP outboards that are 100% electric. Our technology is safe, efficient, and environmentally friendly.

What the future holds for Marine Sustainability

Our world is ever-changing, and with that, so is how we must approach marine sustainability. As a society, it’s our duty to protect our planet and its inhabitants. 

This is why marine innovation is so important. We must continue to find new ways to operate in the marine industry without damaging the delicate ecosystem that sustains us. 

It is no easy task, but it’s one that ACEL Power is up for. The fact that we are among the 11 finalists in the New Ventures BC Competition is a testament to that.

The $250,000 cash prize will further help us in our marine research and development to find new and innovative ways to sustain the marine industry for generations to come. 

We are excited about the future and grateful for the support of those who believe in our vision.

What comes Next?

Being at the forefront of this industry is important to us, and we are grateful for the recognition from New Ventures BC.

Stay tuned for updates as the competition unfolds. We are in this to win it! 

Wish us luck!
