The University Club of Montreal is pleased to launch a unique event taking place at the Club on March 24 from 5.00 p.m. to 7.30 p.m.

Four Montreal startup companies are pitching for investment dollars before a panel of three highly qualified judges/investors.

In his new book, “Moonshot”,  entrepreneur John Scully, former CEO of Pepsi and Apple, stated:
“We are in a new era of digital technology that will increasingly be about machine learning systems and machine-to-machine communication, with no human intervention required. The scale of customer data processing in the Cloud will be so massive that the customer will have immediate information and individual power on an unprecedented level…. We are experiencing a tsunami of exponentially expanding technologies never seen before: cloud computing, wireless sensors, big data, and mobile devices….Computers have leaped from productivity tools to intelligent personal assistants, using machine learning and advanced data science.”
Over the last 5 years, startups have become an increasingly important economic motor for Montreal. This has been encouraged by a significant increase in angel financing from both institutional and private sources. Many leading U.S. venture capital companies have provided  later-stage financing. A number of these companies have been acquired at multiples of their original angel investment.        
We encourage you to attend our March 24 “The Perfect Pitch” Event – determine for yourself if there is one or more future “winners” presenting, and, at the same time, gain first-hand exposure to how these companies capitalize on new technology to launch real businesses, while requiring only a limited amount of capital.

This event has been organized by Paul Lowenstein, Thomas Sychterz and Inder Arya, members of the University Club of Montreal.  


Choc de civilisations? Les dialectiques de la terreur dans le monde après ISIS

En décapitant des victimes ou en les brûlant vives, les punitions barbares de ISIS a répandu la terreur au moyen les médias sociaux et a horrifié le monde. L’infiltration djihadiste à l’ouest a de plus mondialisé la terreur sur une échelle sans précédent et a augmenté la perspective d’une attaque terroriste majeure. Est-ce que le « choc des civilisations » entre l’Islam et l’ouest explique la réalité de cette violence? Est-ce que les leaders mondiaux répondent de manière efficace à ces menaces? Quelles leçons devrons-nous apprendre du passé afin d’éviter un futur cataclysme?
