Emerging entrepreneurs: Let your genius shine!

C2 team
Entrepreneurs émergents concours 2018

Emerging entrepreneurs stand at the forefront of innovation: they get to redefine what it means to conduct business in an ever-changing social, technological and economic landscape. Each newcomer has the potential to add something fresh and meaningful to the mix, and that inherent sense of disruption is integral to C2 Montréal’s theme this year: Transformative Collisions.

For the seventh consecutive year, the Claudine and Stephen Bronfman Family Foundation is pursuing its mission to champion Québec entrepreneurship by holding the Emerging Entrepreneurs Contest. Twenty-five leaders from across Québec who have demonstrated outstanding achievements will be given the opportunity to immerse themselves in the C2 Montréal experience. Surrounded by today’s top business and creative minds, winners will get the opportunity to rub elbows and exchange ideas with highly successful and inspiring leaders from a wide range of fields, thus infusing their own growth with invaluable input from every angle.

Since 2012, over 150 promising new startups have been given this great opportunity, and businesses like Frank & Oak, Oatbox, Busbud and Les Fermes Lufa, to name a few, have gone on to achieve great success both locally as well as internationally.
