Future home of Montreal tech scene unveiled – TechnoCité
“There have been a few events and ad hoc gatherings with groups of tech entrepreneurs,” said Philippe Telio, the president of Embrase, and one of the organizers of several tech events such as Startup Camp Montreal.
“The idea is to bring these groups into a central location, and create a sort of clubhouse for tech entrepreneurs to get together and create, collaborate and stimulate innovative ideas.”
The group made an offer to purchase the property that was accepted by the Société en Commandite Milton, which owns the building. Included in the sale is the attached St. Margaret’s home, a three-story building that served as a hospital and then a seniors’ residence.
I am on the Notman House committee, we have had a few meetings in the last few weeks to brings this project into high gears, it’s a lot of efforts but it’s totally worth it. This is one of my big project for 2010-2011 (as if Praized didn’t keep me busy enough).
If you have any questions about the project, ask them here.
I can’t promise I will be able to answer all of them, but I will either find who knows the answer or work on answering it if we don’t know yet.
This is a total work in progress and I like that!
