Amélie Desrochers (she/her)

EVP, Novarium

Trained as an Economist and a Diplomat, Amelie enjoys destroying old decaying structures (while respecting all things vintage) and she always finds opportunities to perform what she calls ‘creative contamination’. Amelie scaled an AI-related tech Startup for 8+ years, a subsidiary of Google that exited in 2012. Geeky and macro-minded, her fascination for building dynamic innovation ecosystems brought her to San Francisco, Toronto, Montreal and now Rimouski, a city famous for its expertise in ocean-related science and technology. Amelie holds BAA (Applied Economics) from HEC Montreal and a M.Sc. in International Relations from University of Montreal. She worked as a diplomat for Canada’s Global Affairs and the UK’s Foreign & Commonwealth Office where she led climate-related government relations and designed digital diplomacy campaigns around Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Climate. She is EVP of NOVARIUM, Quebec’s Blue Economy innovation hub. She founded FLOTS – a marine accelerator and co-founded Ocean Edge an open innovation platform for port authorities.
