Frequently Asked Questions
We strongly recommend that more than one individual from your company attends the whole program. Applicants who commit to including additional team members will be viewed favourably upon application. At ATB X we recognize that it is challenging for an owner/CEO to ‘do it all’. Having key members of your team along to learn with you is a critical opportunity to build capacity within your company and to accelerate your growth.
ATB X is not an equity investor and we do not charge money for the program. The only requirement is that you have an active ATB Business banking account before the start date of the program. If you are not currently banking at ATB, you simply need to open your account prior to the program start date.
ATB X is for all categories of businesses who are currently operating within Alberta. We like diversity of industries in our cohorts and believe that this is a critical aspect of our success at helping companies grow through ATB X. We welcome any size of company who is focusing on growth of revenue, customers, operations and/or team.
We prefer to work with incorporated companies, however we do not require your company to be incorporated in order to attend ATB X.
The age of the company doesn't matter. If your company has been around for awhile but you are entering a new phase of growth or entering new markets or channels, we welcome you to apply too.
