Each year, our Business Management graduates have to come up with a business idea and, with the help of their teachers, develop a complete business plan for it, including finances, marketing, operations, etc. The goal is that, by having the necessary tools and a concrete plan to get there, they can start their business as soon as they graduate.
But just before that, a team of teacher-coaches has to select the 5 teams with the most promising business plans of the cohort. The 5 teams are announced at the beginning of the event, and then, one after the other, they go on stage to present the fruit of their hard work. In a format similar to the television show "Dragons’ Den", they present their business idea to the public and to a jury.
As always, the jury is made up of business professionals who have the skills and knowledge to ask the students a wide range of questions, and to select the winning projects:
Once again, our students have honored our educational pillar, entrepreneurship, with innovative and sustainable business ideas that fill a hole in the Quebec market. For this edition, the teams that reached the podium are:
The evening ended with a cocktail party where teachers, parents and students were gathered around a small feast, prepared by our teaching restaurant, La Classe.
Congratulations to the winning teams, but also to all our 2019-2022 graduating class. We wish you all the best for the rest of your journey!
