You definitely noticed that 2015 was a milestone year in our ever-maturing Montreal startup ecosystem, and there is an amazing momentum to make 2016 even better! We came a long way since the early days of MTL Newtech in 2008, yet we are always as committed. We are a team of volunteers working on what we love to help catalyze our community. And we have some very interesting projects coming up! Shoot us an email if you are, or know anyone, interested in what we do and would like to get involved and/or support us :)

Have a fantastic week!
