Back-of-the-napkin ideas, to champagne-popping exits.
July 10-12, 2024

Here and Now

The 14th edition Startupfest returns to Montréal with a new and exciting direction. We’re not just talking; we’re doing. It’s a chance for all of us to present, connect, take advantage of new opportunities and tackle the stuff that matters, across all verticals… right here, right now. Read the manifesto.


Why attend?

Practice what we preach

The new realities of augmented work and the increased importance of human connection will launch a wave of fundamentally different businesses. Startups need to adapt, and so do we. This year we’ll infuse AI tools to augment your festival experience while still focusing on meaningful content. We’ll also double down on serendipitous interactions and genuine connections, for which Startupfest has always been famous.
