Over the years, our organization has rallied a community of vibrant, ambitious entrepreneurs who, in all their professionalism, know how to work while having fun. The desire to Innovate is in our veins, our members refuse to walk the path most travelled and we distinguish ourselves by our openness to experience and a constant desire to challenge the status quo.
Whether it’s informal or not, our members know how to have fun. From a balance board competition in the lounge, to an impromptu yoga class in the Desjardins room or to a “friendly” Smash Bros competition on the big screen, nothing livens up IIG lunches more than the initiatives of our members and staff.
Our community brings together innovative people from anywhere on the planet who, through the interwebs, share their common passion for entrepreneurship. While some of us hold our meetings at our headquarters at 455 la Gappe Boulevard in Gatineau, others bring their hustle from an ocean away.
Between our weekly Zoom Coaching with our startups and our monthly Startup Class, our team prepares small and larger events to showcase our community, to connect with others and to innovate while out of our comfort zone.
