MONTREAL, April 18, 2024 – The Rendez-vous Startup Montréal event, held last night at the Wilder Building, was the occasion to unveil the 20 Revelations of 2024, 20 exceptional startups evolving in the most varied sectors of activity. The winners stood out for their innovative technology and/or business model, as well as their proven growth potential.

Thanks to our private and government financial partners: Scotiabank, National Bank, CDPQ, Davies, Groupe Park Avenue, Power Corporation of Canada, MEIE, DEC, MRIF and the Ville de Montréal. And also to the donors of our Soirée-bénéfices 2023: BCF, BDC, Cossette, Cycle Momentum, Desjardins, Fasken, Fonds de solidarité FTQ, KRB Avocats, Novacap, Sollum Technologies and Stingray.

A Springboard for Multiple Opportunities

The 20 Revelations had the chance to present their startups to the audience by taking part in the 60-second pitch challenge. They walked away with the $20,000 grant, made possible by Startup Montréal donors. They will also have access to all the support offered by the organization’s vast network, which includes over 350 volunteer coaches and 1,100 founders.

During the event, the Revelations had the opportunity to interact with many influential players in the startup ecosystem, including renowned investors. They were also able to interact with donors and meet winners from previous years. This first meeting, along with other occasions for visibility and connections offered, will open the door for them to stand out and forge links within the local, national, and international entrepreneurial network. This could create opportunities conducive to their growth and success.
