Innovation Saskatchewan has several specific initiatives that help foster growth of the technology sector in the province.

The Innovation Challenge was launched in 2017 and creates novel solutions to public sector challenges by harnessing ideas of the Saskatchewan startup technology. The program benefits Saskatchewan tech innovators by co-developing a solution that results in a commercial opportunity, applying the innovation to a real-life setting and enabling the company to receive feedback from a large customer.

The Made In Saskatchewan Technology Program (MIST) was launched in 2019 and connects Government to startup tech companies, providing companies with a customer to validate technologies and create a pathway to source procurement.
