BCF IMAGINE CELEBRATES ITS FIRST ANNIVERSARY
“We have felt for several years, that everywhere in Québec, and especially in Montréal, all conditions are in place for the emergence of companies that will create true revolutions in their respective industries.
When we launched our BCF Imagine program, a year ago, I said that for a startup to successfully raise to its full potential, it takes true cooperation of the business forces within the ecosystem.
Much more than a legal support program, BCF Imagine brings together the talent, experience and business networks of our team members to propel ahead the startups with the potential to become leaders in tomorrow’s economy.
In one year, we have selected 20 companies from over a hundred applications. Their deep desire to innovate and to espouse entrepreneurship meets our core values and it's up to all of us in the business community to mobilize and help them shine around the globe,” said Mario Charpentier, Managing Partner of BCF Business Law.
