MTL NewTech is a non-profit organization dedicated to the success of Montréal startup entrepreneurs. Every first Tuesday of the month 4-6 startups present in front of an audience of programmers, engineers, entrepreneurs, investors, students etc. Our community is enthusiastic about technological innovation and eager to discuss new trends, see new products and services and connect with global startup ecosystems. These monthly meetups feature demos which are recorded and the videos also showcased via social media and press coverage after the event.


In addition to the startup demos, we also aim to educate and bring successful entrepreneurs to the community through keynotes or panels. Of course, the event is an incredible opportunity to meet potential co-founders for your next startup, or find valuable talent.

Thanks to key partners such as SDEVM, or EY, we are able to offer working sessions and mentorship to startups to ensure they benefit from preparation for demonstrations and pitches, making NewTech a key event in a startup launch.

We prioritize working with groups within the Montreal Startup community, including MTL + eCommerce, MTLGirlGeeks, HackingHealth, Notman House, Startup Grind Montréal, Francogénie, Montreal Tech Watch, International Startup Festival with a focus on facilitating greater integration between groups and within the rest of Montréal. MTL NewTech is inclusive and community oriented, creating or supporting many well-known initiatives such as the #hackmtl hackathons, the MTLStartupTalent job fairs, the Montreal Startup Guide, WeAreMTLTech, the Montreal + Startups facebook group and many other leading initiatives.
