Bonjour Startup Montréal is launching Montréal’s first growth academy, which will officially begin operating in 2021. The aim of this project is to support professionals with skills in marketing, research and development, or product or system design in developing the skills and knowledge they need to take part in the accelerated growth of local businesses.
The market needs talent that has the tools for accelerated growth
Currently, some 200 companies in Quebec are entering or already in a high-growth phase, with the potential to become $1B corporations or have earnings in excess of $100M a year by 2025. To get past this key point in their development, they will need to hire a lot of talent with specific accelerated-growth skills. However, there aren’t many professionals with that kind of know-how in Montréal at this time. Bonjour Startup Montréal’s growth academy project will address this gap in the market by assisting local professionals in developing a career as a growth manager.
