Outaouais will be represented at the Startupfest

Gatineau: July 5, 2017. – For the second year in a row, a Gatineau-Outaouais Delegation of entrepreneurs and economic development representatives will make their way to the unmissable Start-Up ecosystem meeting of the Montreal Startupfest.

For the past eight years, such a festival has brought together thousands of innovative minds around a wide variety of conferences, workshops, networking, pitch contests… It is indisputably a golden opportunity for entrepreneurs to draw attention to themselves by showcasing their pioneering ideas, to learn (more than 125 conferences on 8 stages) about tech novelty, to be aware of the latest trends within the industry, to expand their network (more than 7000 people coming from more than 20 different countries) and to find investment deals (financial awards and investors on the spot).

Last year, 21 people benefited from a preferential package to participate in the Montreal Startupfest. This current year, the experience is renewed and the upgraded offer includes: transport facilities, accommodation, a demonstration space at the festival and pitch coaching.

The Gatineau-Outaouais delegation will be made up of Rake Around, JSD Conseil, Thorium90, Brokrete, OURides, CAPE, Innovation Hayo, HR NAV PLUS, In-Sec-M as well as the Carrefour Jeunesse Emploi of Outaouais, ID Gatineau and Cilex – Innovation Catalyst.

This initiative of Cilex – Innovation Catalyst, supported by the City of Gatineau, the Table d’Action en Entrepreneuriat de l’Outaouais and ID Gatineau, will benefit the economic development of the region by making Gatineau and the Outaouais shine brightly through the visibility and promotion of its talents.
