About us

Housed at a satellite campus  in the heart of Old Montreal, Project IC MTL was launched in May 2016 as a joint venture between Dawson College's Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship Education and Cégep du Vieux Montréal's Entrepreneurship Initiative.  

IC MTL aims to catalyze the emergence, development and success of innovative businesses and social enterprises in the creative and cultural industries by leveraging the talents of this great city.

IC MTL supports, trains and guides budding entrepreneurs during the pre-startup and startup phases of a new creative venture, in a context of sustainable development, social, economic and environmental responsibility and good citizenship.

Creative and cultural sector professionals will have structured and tangible opportunities to develop and hone their entrepreneurial skills and make valuable business connections all the while building their new venture.
Our programs are dedicated to people whose innovative ideas intersect art, design, and technology.

The creatives industries include:
Advertising, Architecture, Crafts, Design (Product - including 3D printing, Graphics, Fashion, Interiors), Multimedia (Film, TV, Radio, Video, Projection, Webcasts, Podcasts), Gastronomy, Internet and Music Industries, Museums, Galleries,Performing and Visual Arts, Photography (Commercial and Fine Art) Print and Electronic Publishing,  Toys and Games, Virtual & Augmented Reality.
