Following the success of the first edition of C2-MTL and the incredible level of enthusiasm generated by the initiative, the Claudine and Stephen Bronfman Family Foundation decided to repeat the experience and offer to another cohort of 25 emerging entrepreneurs the opportunity to participate in the conference that will be held from May 21 to 23, 2013.

Montreal will host one of the most anticipated conferences of the year on creativity in the business world. Last year, the conference generated over $185M in commercial agreements. Nearly 2,000 participants are expected this year, more than half will come from abroad.

The 25 entrepreneurs selected by the Foundation will have the opportunity to meet high-profile speakers who will be appearing at the conference. They will join other attendees at original events designed to expand their creativity and their minds. They will also take part in the discussions and workshops, side-by-side with some of the greatest thinkers and doers in the world of commerce and creativity.

  1. This is an excellent way to encourage entrepreneurs from Quebec to scale their company worldwide. Hearing the stories of people who’ve made it at home and abroad is a refreshing experience.
