Only 15% of the entrepreneurs in Montréal are women. Startup Montréal wants to change the statistics by supporting ambitious women in making their entrepreneurial dream a reality. The program is geared both to the development of human potential and the development of the idea into a business project.
This program is offered twice a year. For those who will not be able to apply to this cohort, see you at the next edition, at the end of summer 2023.
If you have any further questions, please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to giving me the possibility of meeting experts from different disciplines, all of them highly relevant, the program allowed me to acquire the necessary competencies to create a business beyond a mere ambition. Thanks to the program, I was able to transform a bold concept into a viable startup.Chloe Lussier, Lowbirth Games, Winner of the 2020 cohort
The program gave me the momentum I needed to launch the project! I started with a simple idea and the pathway gave me the strategy to put everything in motion, ask myself the right questions and lead up to a startup. All this while giving me access to a vast network of entrepreneurs and experts who were enthusiastic and ready to assist me.Mona-Lisa Prosper, UPLFT, 2020 cohort
On Day 1, I submitted an idea I could barely put into words. By the end of the Boost course (Week 4), I had a value proposition and a network. Even though I wasn't in the Lift course. I used the calendar for my mini-objectives. Two months later, I had ended up developing a relevant business model that gave me access to an accelerator and several opportunities. My network grew on its own. All this thanks to the FoundHers program!Sandra Timma, PayRelax, 2020 cohort
