What are the QI_Connexion events?

The Quartier de l'Innovation, in collaboration with Deloitte and BCF, organizes five QI_Connexion per year.

During each QI_Connexion, upto ten entrepreneurs are given the opportunity to do a pitch to present their business solution to a predetermined client. Their pitch represent a concrete occasion to sign a contract with an actual client.

For this special edition held as part of Printemps numérique, the QI_Connexion will take a new form. The selected startups/SMBs presentations will be held in private in front of the client at the end of April. The participants will have 10 minutes to present their solution followed by a 15 minute Q&A.

Who is the client?

CBC/Radio-Canada is the national public broadcaster. Radio-Canada is a reference among French media in the country. It is the only producer and distributor of French cultural content and information in radio, television and the Internet across our country.

What is the problematic?
