Bonjour Startup Montréal names members of first board of directors
Bonjour Startup Montréal, a nonprofit organization with the goal of putting Montréal’s startup ecosystem on the map, has named the member of its first board of directors. “We are pleased to be able to ensure a solid foundation for Bonjour Startup Montréal and affirm our role in supporting and building the ecosystem in order to maximize the players’ collective impact,” said Liette Lamonde, CEO of Bonjour Startup Montréal. OSMO created Bonjour Startup Montréal as a way to mobilize Montreal’s startups, organizations, universities, and business community with the ultimate goal to position the city in the top 20 most dynamic ecosystems in the world. In April, Bonjour Startup Montréal partnered with Desjardins and Google Canada to launch Post-COVID, a virtual competition that identified innovative solutions to societal issues resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic in Québec. In June, Bonjour Startup Montréal created a tool that aims to centralize information on Montréal companies, investors, support organizations and to promote the city’s business and tech activity.
