Pascal Labrecque

Entrepreneur in residence - Tech & Medtech at Propulsion seulement / Propulsion only

Pascal’s mission is to use technology to raise our society’s quality of life. Holding a PhD in mechanical engineering from Laval University, he also studied at La Polytechnique de Montréal and McGill University. During his doctoral years, he specialized in human-robot cooperation and worked for the CHU de Québec on the design of a robot used for cancer treatment. His interest in entrepreneurship led him to participate in programs such as Entrepreneuriat Laval, McGill’s Experimental Surgery, and Centech, as well as to co-found Corstem, a company that developed cardiac imaging analysis software based on artificial intelligence. In early 2019, Corstem was successfully acquired by Circle Cardiovascular Imaging, a world-leading firm in cardiac imaging. Following the acquisition, Pascal managed the Business and Product Operations at Circle and took the role of advisor and investor in more than a dozen startups. Then in 2022, after Circle got acquired by a Private Equity, he decided to jump back into the startup ecosystem and joined Centech as an Entrepreneur in Residence.
