WHAT’S HAPPENING AROUND STARTUPFEST
Startupfest has become Canada’s largest startup events, and as a result, a range of organizations run their own startup-related events during the week, lending a “festival” air to Montreal. We try to provide a list of such events as a convenience to attendees, but please note that any Startupfest “Off-Events” are not organized by Startupfest itself, and we aren’t responsible for their content or format.
