Why Montreal?

This year alone, Montreal has been home to the largest series A of any AI company in history (Element AI), led Canada with the most VC dollars invested (raising over $800 million USD), and Montreal based Lightspeed closed the largest venture-financing deal in Canadian history. And this is just the Montreal-based companies… As Canada’s largest startup event, we bring in companies from the top accelerators and startup communities from around the globe.

Montreal’s new status as an AI capital- introducing #AIFest presented by ElementAI

In 2017, Startupfest teamed up with ElementAI to create #AIFest, a premium event which explores the future of AI and its impact on society and business. The event brings together the brightest minds from the startup and AI worlds to share perspectives on artificial intelligence trends, predictions and issues, featuring Jana Eggers (Nara Logics, Inc.), Jean-Francois Gagne (ElementAI), Elizabeth Gore (Alice), and more.
