Montréal Cowork, an inspiring and vibrant collaborative workspace opened its doors and celebrated the launch of its first location in the heart of Plateau-Mont-Royal on Wednesday, Oct. 25.
Are you someone with a startup company or a home-based business that would like a professional workspace for a few days, weeks or months? Or maybe you’ve just landed in Montreal and would like to start your own business, but don’t know where to start? With Montréal Cowork’s wide range of services, from private offices to open co-working spaces or even personalized entrepreneurial coaching, its mission is to provide all the necessary resources for newcomers and locals to let them fully focus on their business.
“We are targeting local and immigrant entrepreneurs because we want to create a community where entrepreneurs from Quebec and from all over the world can work and learn together,” said Justine Lefebvre, communications coordinator at BICOM Communications, the PR firm representing Montréal Cowork.
With the help of Immigration à la carte, newcomers can benefit from mentorship activities, free conferences, and networking events to give them a head start on their future endeavors.
“We want to help newcomers launch their business and do it well”, said Lefebvre.
The organization also offers various packages that include access to video-conference rooms, unlimited access to private offices and even printing services for teams up to 10 people. With its state of the art equipment, aesthetic offices and rooftop terrace overlooking Montreal, Montréal Cowork is a place where teams can get inspired and guests are definitely impressed!
“We are now a 7000 sf. building, but we are planning on expanding it to 21 000 sf. and making more offices and a wider working space for everyone,” said Lefebvre.
Located two minutes away from the Mont-Royal metro station and with a spacious parking lot for cars and bicycles “you can now focus on what’s important: your business,” said François Cartier, lead activator of Montréal Cowork.
