The global economy is in the midst of a transformation towards a new, low-pollution model built around clean innovation. Canadian entrepreneurs in different sectors across the country, both big and small, are beginning to succeed in growing businesses that build a cleaner economy. They're demonstrating that such a shift is possible, but only if we provide the right conditions for success.
Join us in Montreal for the second of four free public panel discussions hosted at schools across the country. Come together with entrepreneurs, students, researchers and established leaders to explore Succeeding in the Green Economy: Lessons learned from Canadian clean growth entrepreneurs.
The panel will be moderated by:
Catherine Bérubé - Vice President, Sustainability & Investor Relations at Cycle Capital Management
- Dominique Souris - Co-Founder & Executive Director, Youth Climate Lab, member of the Smart Prosperity Leaders' Initiative
- Jocelyn Doucet - Co-Founder & CEO of Pyrowave
- Geneviève Gauthier - National Director,
- Julien Lampron – Director, Public Affairs, Fondaction
- Daniel Normandin – Executive Director, l’Institut EDDEC
The discussion will revolve around potential clean growth economic opportunities, sharing local clean economy success stories, and providing advice for students and entrepreneurs looking to develop their ideas or advance their careers.
