March 21, 2017

The Université de Québec à Montréal (UQAM) and its School of Management have partnered with Tourisme Montréal and the City of Montréal to create an incubator that will support entrepreneurs from the tourism, transport, culture, hotel, restaurant, and entertainment sectors. Going by the name MT Lab, the centre has been made possible in part by a $200K contribution from the City of Montreal. MT Lab will be located at UQÀM in the Pierre-Dansereau Science Complex at the heart of Montreal’s entertainment district. The incubator will offer start-ups a host of services such as conference areas and an open space for coworking with open access and mentoring. “A fine example of a university contribution to the vitality of its community, MT Lab will make the advanced expertise of UQAM and its School of Management available to start-ups, to foster innovation in key sectors of the Montréal economy,” said UQÀM Rector Robert Proulx.
