Montréal 2016

September 22 @ 3:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Montreal’s tech space is booming, and Startup Open House is here to show you just how much. Since our first event in 2013, we’ve grown almost just as fast as the ecosystem. We can barely keep up with the multitude of cool startups popping up from St. Henri to Mile-Ex.

For the 4th year, Startup Open House is giving Montrealers the chance to walk into the inspiring, quirky, and fun workplaces of their city’s most innovative startups. Companies are opening their doors and providing free access to job seekers, investors, and curious neighbors to discover the startup world. By learning about these companies and their products from inside their workplaces, participants get a feel for the startup’s culture, vibe and values.

Into marketing? Meet the marketing guru. Interested in product design? Chat with the Head of Product. The company is yours to discover. That’s the beauty of Startup Open House.

This September 22nd 2016, be prepared to build your itinerary through the city’s registered startups, bring some resumes, business cards or just a good smile and hangout with Montreal’s top entrepreneurs, where they create.

For startups, simply register to participate, as it is free before August 5th. If you do so, you will benefit from max visibility on our website and social media as well as will avoid the $50 “incentive-for-you-to-register”.

For participants, tickets aren’t available yet, sorry. Our ticket sales and path builder tool will go live as of August and will allow you to build your own path through the city. In the meantime, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and sign-up for our email list to receive updates first.

Walk in. Discover. Connect.

Register your startup before August 5th to avoid the $50 “incentive-for-you-to-register” fee and benefit from max visibility.

Here are some startups that have participated in past years.
