Information to come.



Farah Kanji is a recent transplant from Canada, where SOH was founded. Most recently, Farah was running the recruitment function at Onfido and scaled the organisation from 30 employees to 80 in just 7 months. Now, she spends her time at Founders Factory aligning world-class talent with incubation products, supporting the right internal culture and employer brand amongst cohort and operating teams.



Kristian Bright is the Head of Talent Acquisition at Lost My Name, a Google Venture backed personalised publishing startup based in London. Outside of work, Kristian helps to run a community for in-house recruiters in London called DBR. What started as 5 people talking about recruitment over a few beers has grown into a community of over 100 recruiters sharing knowledge, experiences and advice.



It didn’t take take long for Layla Kidwai to realise that she was meant to be in the tech space. After starting her career at American Express and Robert half, she entered the world of tech working at Infusion, Dapasoft, Kijiji, eBay and PayPal. She’s now works at WorldRemit as the Head of Talent where she focuses on recruitment and employer branding.

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.

Walk in. Discover. Connect.
