High attendance at La grand-messe Montréal inc., presented by Bell

On April 12, Fondation Montréal inc. invited a hundred emerging start-ups to present themselves to the media, Web influencers and actors of the Montreal start-up ecosystem at La grand-messe Montréal inc., presented by Bell.  The trade show attracted over 450 visitors, who discovered the upcoming trends in entrepreneurship.

The event was a unique opportunity to connect to the source of innovation and be in the forefront of the coming entrepreneurial trends in the start-up universe.  The 100 selected businesses exhibiting at La grand-messe Montréal inc. were all Montreal-based businesses, currently in the start-up or growth stage, and have been commercializing their product/service for less than 2 years. Out of the 100 exhibitors, 40 were from La Fondation Montréal inc.

« The activity sectors represented were illustrative of the Montreal start-up ecosystem with a high percentage of exhibitors in technology, food, fashion and health and wellness » stated Liette Lamonde, Executive Director at Fondation Montréal inc.

Following their time spent in real confessionals, where start-ups had two minutes to pitch, the media and Web influencers symbolically gave a blessing to their favourite emerging start-up.  They based their decision on the following criteria: illustration of a trend, innovation, growth potential and quality of the pitch.

Congratulations to the emerging start-ups who were given a blessing:
