About Founded in Quebec
Since the beginning of the 21st century, Quebec has shown a flourishing startup scene. We host a workforce that is comprised of highly qualified multinationals and multilinguals. 90 percent of the Quebecers population speaks English and French, or at least they think they do. With innovators like Ubisoft, EA and Activision establishing headquarters in Montreal along with an explosion of indie game studios more recently, the Quebecers belong to the most innovative people of the world. Want proof? We’ve invented the Trivial Pursuit, The Bus Tracker and of course, the Peanut Butter. Sweet, right?
The surge of successful entrepreneurial endeavors in Quebec has propelled us to the forefront of digital startups in America. The region has become one of America's hottest startup hubs for Gaming companies. Therefore, we feel that it’s time to celebrate. Not to brag, but because we believe that everybody should be proud of these gems of boldness.
As founders, we think that having Quebecer roots is one of the best assets a company can have. That’s why we’ve introduced a crisp and typically Quebecer figurative, The Fleurdelisé. Besides, a little bulb that’s growing into a beautiful flower is the perfect metaphor for a startup.
Inspired by Made in NYC, we’ve composed a list of truly innovative Quebecers startups. What do all these companies have in common?
- They were founded in Quebec in the 21st century
- They have the ambition to transform their industry
- The founders drink maple syrup like water
