If your project is still maturing or your business is very new, you will be invited to participate in the Start Up Factory to briefly present your project to an audience of investors, coaches and other project leaders. The questions raised after your pitch will help you perfect your project. You will also have the opportunity to network and increase your circle of advisors.
The Startup Factory is an evening event, conducted in French and run every quarter.
If your project is more mature and you’re comfortable pitching but now wish to become “investment ready”, then you will be invited to participate in the Venture Academy. You will attend a workshop, pitch your company twice and receive personalised coaching. This gives you an opportunity to find a sponsor and investors. The networking opportunities are fantastic.
The Venture Academy a three days event, conducted in English and run twice a year in the Spring and the Fall. It is kicked off on Thursday evening and ends up on Saturday after a brunch.
It is presented to all of our members and each of them
expresses their interest in providing financial or personal support.
Your project is then in Deal Flow!
Even when a project is not selected, we give feedback to the entrepreneur and guide them to someone more appropriate to their needs.
