Our Home: Montréal

Montréal is the cultural capital of Canada, and as soon as you get here you’ll understand why. The city has an unbeatable festival vibe, and is second to none in the summertime!

Today Montréal welcomes a growing community of entrepreneurs, the outcome of its decision nearly 10 years ago to deploy capital, intelligence and support to lay the foundations of a strong ecosystem.
