The Conciergerie: a new personalized advisory service for the Montréal startup ecosystem

MONTRÉAL, May 10, 2021 – Bonjour Startup Montréal today unveiled a new advisory service, called The Conciergerie, intended for founders of Montréal startups.

“Our concierge service responds to several requests from startups, as well as business accelerators and incubators. Behind this service, we find the talents and expertise of our colleagues, Laurence, Melyan and Patricia. We salute the partners and startups that allowed us to test this product before its launch,” points out Liette Lamonde, CEO of Bonjour Startup Montréal.

The Conciergerie is a free service offered by Bonjour Startup Montréal experts, who will guide startup founders to the right resources to accelerate their growth and develop their business. As the entrepreneurial project moves forward, The Conciergerie’s team identifies immediate or future needs, such as coaching, financing, funding competitions, grants, and open innovation and international opportunities.

Startups interested in this service can contact a concierge directly at concierge@bonjourstartupmtl.ca. To learn more about The Conciergerie, visit the service webpage: https://www.bonjourstartupmtl.ca/en/our-projects/the-concierge-service/

The launch of this new personalized coaching service also aligns with the release of a major update of Bonjour Startup Montréal’s website. Since its creation in 2018, the organization has evolved, adding several projects for Montréal startups, such as Startup Radar, Inno Startup and the Invincible Collective. The improved version of the website makes it easier to find these projects and also includes a dynamic version of the Montréal ecosystem’s map.
