Our annual benefit evening.



In this very special year, Montréal inc. has more than ever at heart its mission to help entrepreneurs in Montreal. They are the ones who make Montreal a dynamic, innovative and vibrant city. Shaken by the crisis, they achieved to pivot, reinvent themselves, and make our city proud.

This is why Mtl inc. organized a fundraising campaign over the next few weeks, that ended during in the Soirée Mtl inc., our annual celebration which will get a special (virtual!) makeover this year. We look forward to another exceptional gala… this time in complete safety!

The mission

All the funds raised will allow us to offer grants and support to the most innovative startups in the city.
