Startup Montréal’s cohort of 20 Revelations – 2022
Published on April 13th, 2022
Startup Montréal is pleased to announce its Revelations, a group of 20 Montréal startups worth keeping an eye for in 2022. Selected under the Grant+ Revelations program, these twenty startups are early-stage businesses that stand out for their innovation, the growth potential of their business model and their achievements.
In addition to receiving a $20,000 grant, they will benefit from outreach and access to the Startup Montréal business network, composed of over 450 volunteer coaches and 1,100 founders. Startup Montréal Revelations, formerly under Montréal inc., is an annual competition that has been rewarding over twenty businesses annually for over 25 years, thanks to donors who contribute to the organization’s philanthropic mission.
“The choice of these startups shows the richness of our ecosystem. All of these businesses participated in an accelerator program or were supported by an organization part of the Montréal ecosystem. We have an outstanding quality of support in Montréal for businesses with high economic and social impact. Grant+ Revelations is the opportunity to propel these promising businesses and participate in their development,” said Liette Lamonde, Managing Director of Startup Montréal.
The startups that were selected reflect on the trends observed in the ecosystem. Over half of the businesses are in three booming economic sectors, such as health and social services (25%), Information and communications technology (20%) and life sciences (10%). In addition, these startups all have a technological component, particularly in medtech (25% of the projects), artificial intelligence (20%) and virtual / augmented reality (15%). The Revelations form a cohort of 56 cofounders which 36% of them are women.
The Revelations were selected by evaluators from the business community and partner organizations of the ecosystem, who determined the finalists. These finalists then presented their company to a jury of 6 notable entrepreneurs, including the Jury Chair and cofounder of TrackTik, Julie Lacasse, as well as Frédéric Bastien of Mnubo, Roberto Casoli of CHK PLZ, Joëlle Chartrand of RenoRun, Xavier Peich, formerly with Smart Halo, and Chloé Soucy of Quo Vadis.
“These Revelations offer more than innovative products or solutions. The experience of the cofounders, their progress, milestones achieved during the last year, and the potential for growth were all taken into consideration for the selection. As a woman entrepreneur, I see the merit of giving back to the business community by offering them time and support based on my experience. I am proud to have chaired this jury, which included other experienced entrepreneurs from the Montréal community,” said Julie Lacasse, Chair of the Revelations Selection Jury.
This selection will be announced during Rendez-Vous Startup Montréal, on the evening of April 13. The Rendez-Vous Startup will bring together over 150 people from Startup Montréal’s extended network, including former Laureates, volunteer coaches, donors and several partners.
