Our Montreal Ecosystem has been busy over the summer and have launch 2 new incubators
CQIB Life Science Incubator : Known as a “life sciences incubator,” the CQIB is located in a repurposed research facility on Cartier Blvd. West in the heart of Laval’s thriving Cité de la Bio-Technologie district. It offers mentoring services not just to enterprises across Quebec, but also around the world. Founded in 1995 by the Institut national de recherche scientifique (INRS) and the City of Laval, this incubator is located in the heart of Laval’s high-tech science park. It is the only business incubator that specializes in biotechnology in Quebec and the first life sciences incubator in Canada. (https://www.lavalnews.ca/ottawa-awards-1-4-million-laval-bio-science/)
