President and CEO, Analytica Advisors

SESSION: Collaborating to Create Markets and Solve Problems: How innovators are working with customers to build clean technologies

Céline Bak is the President and CEO of Analytica Advisors. In 2007 she recognized that innovation-based industries were poorly represented through existing primary economic research and concluded that this lack of evidence distorted the whole lifecycle of innovation-based companies, from incubation and capital raising to securing domestic reference customers and participating in global value chains. To change this, she has authored and published four annual evidence-based national reports that have catalyzed the growth of Canada's emerging energy and water technology industry. Her research has changed the investment and policy landscape, and has formed the basis of hundreds of millions of dollars in catalytic public program investment. She is engaged in consultancy projects addressing finance, innovation and trade across Canada and around the world.

Céline has had an international career, first as a Principal of A.T. Kearney, a global management consulting firm, and later as an operating executive in two high growth Canadian technology companies, Solect Technology group and Bridgewater Systems, both of which were acquired by Amdocs (DOX). Her current leadership roles include her position as Chair of the Clean Technology Private Sector Advisory Board for the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development. She is a member of the Asia Development Bank Low Carbon Technology Steering Committee to build innovative finance vehicles for broad adoption of low carbon technologies. She also sits on the board of Green Centre Canada and serves on the Core Evaluation Team for Genome Canada's Genomic Applications Partnership Program. Céline has been recognized as a Clean16 honoree for her contribution to developing capital markets for sustainability in Canada, as well as by Nature Canada as one of Canada's Women of Nature.
