A program to experiment internationally

A 10-week exchange program specifically designed to accelerate the international development of Montréal companies in foreign markets and to support foreign companies in testing Canadian and North American markets.

The first PLOUF@PARIS exchange program between companies in Paris and Montreal is in place in partnership with the 3 Parisian accelerators in creativity and digital culture (LINCC, Lab de l’Édition and Smart Food LAB) and will take place from 2018 to 2020.

What will we work on?

  • Market access conditions and establishment within partner ecosystems through training and meetings with experts in different fields;
  • Validation of the participating companies proposals directly through experimentation on test sites offered by corporate partners of the foreign market incubators / accelerators hosting the program.

What is the cost of the program?

Varies based on the conditions of each international partnership and exchange program.

The current program PLOUF@PARIS is free for Montreal companies going to Paris and French companies arriving in Montreal, including support and a work space made available during their stay in the foreign country (maximum of 4 weeks ). Participating companies only have to pay for their hosting costs and the costs of developing their test in the experimental sites.
