Lorena Forster

Market and Corporate Development

Lorena leads market and corporate development efforts alongside Amir. Over her career, she has held various positions in business and corporate development with private and non-for profit organizations in Edmonton and Calgary. More recently, as the northern Alberta business development lead with the Kinetica Energy Technology Accelerator (now embedded into Platform Calgary), she worked with many energy start-up companies. In her past corporate and strategy development positions, her efforts lead to increased community outreach, improved customer relations, and successful partnerships.

Lorena is passionate about helping entrepreneurs grow companies and become better leaders and is an active volunteer mentor with Threshold Impact Venture Mentoring Service (VMS) and Futurpreneur Canada. Her past volunteer positions include advisory board member of Threshold Impact VMS, past board member/ treasurer of the Alberta Clean Technology Industry Association (ACTia), and past co-chair of the Edmonton Chapter of the Licensing Executive Society.

For Lorena, working at Roshan Water™ comes full circle for two reasons. From her preschool years in rural Alberta living with a lack of indoor running water at home to consciously conserving water in everything she does today, the importance of water in our daily lives has never left her. Trying to make the world a better place in whatever way she can is very important to Lorena, and Roshan Water™’s mission to ensure safe, drinking water fits with her personal mantra.
