About the C2 Montréal Emerging Entrepreneurs Contest

For the past ten years, Claudine and Stephen Bronfman have championed entrepreneurship in Quebec.

For three full days, the 25 winners of the Emerging Entrepreneurs Contest will participate in all C2 Montréal activities. They will benefit from a custom program, meet exceptional speakers, take part in hands-on collaborative sessions, attend exclusive events and rub shoulders with some of today’s top business and creative minds.


To be eligible for the contest, businesses must be based in the province of Quebec and in operation for no more than three years. Each prize has an approximate value of $3,000 CAD.
