December 14, 2017

HEC Montréal has announced that alumnus Raymond Langlois has made a bequest of $5M to the school, the largest ever received by the institution, to support the viability and growth of social enterprises. “The people who run these businesses make their companies’ survival and profitability a tool for social development and a way of improving their communities’ standard of living,” said Langlois, who hopes to support entrepreneurs who sought to serve the public through economic efficiency. Langlois also made an outright gift of $250K over five years that will go towards a program that will support students from HEC, Polytechnique Montréal, and Université de Montréal who are starting up a social enterprise. HEC
