Want to make a big impact in the Kootenays?
KAST is in the business of creating strong rural communities. Our partnerships, programs and services are all focused on creating inclusive, sustainable, high-paying jobs.
We do this by attracting capital, connecting people and businesses, and fostering a thriving community of science and technology-based entrepreneurship.
But we can’t do it alone. KAST operates with no “core” operating funds. Instead, we are powered by project funding, donations, membership dues, volunteers, and a whole lot of passion, sweat and tears.
