Voici ma courte réponse à NextMontréal qui m’a demandé mes prévisions pour Montréal en 2012. Je suis de l’avis que l’année 2012 sera de loin la meilleure pour Montréal. Plusieurs facteurs de succès clés seront mis en place pour contribuer au développement d’un écosystème pour les entreprises en démarrage plus solides, basés ici, dans la région de Montréal. L’ADN de l’entreprenariat à Montréal se répand, et pas seulement à quelques heureux élus. Je m’attends à voir une hausse du nombre de nouvelles entreprises en démarrage ainsi que l’émergence de nouveaux entrepreneurs et d’entrepreneurs (enfin) récurrents. Ce nouvel élan est dû en partie à des initiatives telles que le Festival international du Startup, le C100, la Maison Notman, AccelerateMTL, FounderFuel, CIX, une hausse du capital-risque disponible à Montréal et aussi parce que les médias commencent à s’intéresser aux entreprises en démarrage et accordent une plus grande visibilité à nos entreprises en démarrage dans le domaine de la technologie.

Below is my short response to the nextMontreal request for “2012 Predictions for Montreal“. I think 2012 is Montreal best year yet, because many key success factors will further be put in place to help build a stronger tech and startup ecosystem here. Montreal’s entrepreneurial DNA is spreading to more than just the few. And I expect to see an increase in the number of new startups being launched and the emergence of new as well as (finally) recurring entrepreneurs. This new momentum is due in part to initiatives such as: StartupFest, C100, Notman House, AccelerateMTL, FounderFuel, CIX, more venture capital funding flowing into Montreal, and because mass media is now taking notice and has started providing more visibility to our tech startups.

I think the Canadian Tech Community is on fire, and even more so in Montreal. The next few years will be of utmost interest.

Je crois que la communauté technologique canadienne est extraordinairement dynamique, et cela est d’autant plus vrai à Montréal. Les prochaines années seront des plus intéressantes. Les entrepreneurs ont besoin d’une base solide – non seulement pour lancer leurs entreprises technologiques, mais aussi pour les renforcer à partir de leur ville d’origine – et cette base […]


Cross border deals by C100ers already account for over $40M in funding: Calgary based Tynt, Toronto based Kontagent, Montreal based Beyond the Rack, Edmonton based Immunet, Toronto based Dayforce, Montreal based Vantrix, to name but a few. Also worth noting, Toronto based Bumptop acquisition by Google was also co-funded by two C100ers.


In early March, at an event in Menlo Park, the association was ready to give the world a first glance at who was behind the C100 Organizing Committee, who were some of the initial Charter Members, and to highlight the C100 global ambitions. There was active participation from Montreal’s venture capital community, including iNovia Capital, Montreal Startup, Teralys Capital and BDC Ventures; as well as some of our top tech company entrepreneurs: Woozworld, Reflex, Coradiant, Beyond the Rack, and a few others as well.
