OUR ENTREPRENEURS TALK ABOUT CENTECH

“ By joining Centech I saved time and was able to throw myself completely into developing my project. My team and I benefited from the resources and knowledgeable advice—as well as from ÉTS’s unique reputation! I was looking for something special and I found it at Centech. ”

Pascal Chiva-Bernard

ARA Robotique

“ Choosing Centech was a great idea. At first, I considered it because it was a technology incubator offering innovative equipment. Then, I discovered that growing in an entrepreneurial setting allowed me to develop skills beyond those of being an engineer. I was able to become a better public speaker, manager and entrepreneur. The program they offer is really comprehensive! ”

Keaven Martin

EVEY

“ Making our project a reality at Centech allowed us to do several things. The first was, of course, to get access to cutting-edge materials and labs—which let us create our prototype. This is one of the major challenges when you decide to create a product, and thanks to Centech, we were able to move from plans to concrete experiments. Very few incubators offer this possibility. ”

Jonathan Coulombe

MECADEMIC

“ Centech supported us throughout the prototype phase, as well as, now, during launching. It offers us a universe of information—classified, organized and available—as well as excellent, close connections. Doors were opened for us. Centech is highly respected and is an excellent partner that continues to help us evolve as tech entrepreneurs. ”
