You and your team have clearly identified a problem in a specific industry, and people in the field have confirmed that they’re willing to pay for your solution? Now’s the time to look at developing your product/service and your business model.

  • A one-year program with reassessments every 3 months.

  • A personalized individual coaching plan that includes R&D, business model planning, intellectual property, financing, marketing and much more.

  • Training workshops based on your needs .

  • Preferential access to our experts, affiliated researchers, professionals in residence and our large network of resources .

  • Simplified access to financing options such as the Futurpreneur Fast Track Program, the Startup Quebec programs, the Momentum service from MAIN and incubation help from the MEIE (all depending on eligibility requirements).

  • All this while retaining your intellectual property rights and all your company shares.

Who is it for?

This program is designed for startups in the pre-market phase or early market entry phase (selling for less that 3 years).

  • If you are still in the idea phase, we recommend you take part in the Sprint

  5. If you are selected, a coach will be assigned to you to start a one-month trial.
