Hey Entrepreneurs: Here’s How to Visit Montreal for Three Months
Over the past few years, Montréal’s beloved Startupfest has grown into a global gathering of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs, founders, investors, and mentors. The three-day festivities include thought-provoking keynotes, interactive how-to sessions, industry predictions, and a healthy dose of irreverence. But the initiatives of Startupfest are not just limited to three days in July.

Startupfest has recently launched a new project. To add fuel to the already roaring local startup scene, the annual festival has partnered with leading accelerators and community champions to host 100 international startups, each for a three-month period. The qualifying entrepreneurs and founders will get to immerse themselves in the Canadian startup ecosystem, surrounded by mentors, investors, and contemporaries. It’s the perfect opportunity to take a business to the next level.
