How often do you get to meet an entrepreneur to pick their brain in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere? Sometimes all a future entrepreneur needs is a mentor and a nudge in the right direction.

This event brings together future entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial leaders in the community. You will have 15 minutes to ask each entrepreneur your burning startup questions. Come and meet them right after our keynote speaker.

Entrepreneurs graciously provided by the Jeune Chambre de Commerce de Montreal (JCCM), Mentors Montreal, CEDEC and Futurpreneur.
