CEIM receives $ 1.74 Million from Canada Economic Development
CEIM receives $ 1.74 Million from Canada Economic Development to support the growth of Quebec's technology startups.
The Minister of Economic Development and Official Languages and Minister responsible for CED, the Honourable Mélanie Joly, announced, earlier this week, financial support for 46 Quebec-based companies and organizations that develop innovative solutions and that contribute to an entrepreneurial environment that is conducive to innovation and economic growth.
As an incubator and accelerator, CEIM was granted a $ 1.74 Million contribution to support the creation, growth and longevity of innovative startups.
We are extremely grateful to Minister Mélanie Joly and the Government of Canada for the continued support that they have given to our mission and goals.
Strengthening the competitiveness and growth potential of our innovative startups
As a pioneer in Quebec’s startup ecosystem, we understand the realities that entrepreneurs have to face, and are fully committed to their success. This is indeed what enabled us to develop an effective coaching model and proven skills.
Since the outset, we have always believed that the best way to help entrepreneurs is to deliver personalized services and pragmatic solutions that meet their specific needs, at each stage of development. It is a winning formula which yields conclusive results, both in terms of sales growth and job creation.
This is reflected in the most recent independent surveys that were conducted by the governments of both Quebec and Canada, and that reveal customer satisfaction rates for our incubated/accelerated companies of over 90% (91% and 93% respectively).
Quebec is a hotbed of creativity and talent, and our companies are true catalysts for innovation. They have, however, been severely impacted by the crisis. This prompted us to quickly set up an emergency consultation program for all our clients, and grant a temporary two-month waiver of rent for our residents. More than ever, we remain particularly attentive to their needs.
Companies interested in learning more about our services are encouraged to contact us directly.
CEIM (Centre d’entreprises et d’innovation de Montréal) is dedicated to helping early-stage and growth-stage tech companies that present innovative projects with strong commercial potential. We foster close relationships with our clients and offer a wide range of services that are tailored to their specific needs, with a view of providing them with the optimal conditions to grow and sustain their projects in the long term.
