September 16th, 2020

3:00 PM to 6:00 PM

Due to a lack of convenient opportunities and busy academic schedules, students get trapped in their little bubbles – students from different schools rarely interact with each other, and we see the same for students in different faculties or programs.

Additionally, there are not enough resources preparing students for the transition between school and professional life (corporate jobs, entrepreneurship, etc).

This initiative dawned upon us with the following questions in mind- How can we make students more well-rounded and connected? Curious? Have a holistic and interdisciplinary understanding of the world after university?

We’re introducing this initiative with our ‘Out of the Bubble: Kickoff‘ event at the start of the 2020 Fall semester, September 16th. 


The event will take place on the platform Hopin and features the following components:

  • The main stage, where a group of panelists will share their experiences both as students and as entrepreneurs or members of the startup community

  • 4-6 Challenge-based Breakout rooms

  • Virtual Expo Platform

  • 3-minute “Speed-networking” function, which will be offered 30 minutes before the event and any time after the main stage

  • The structure of this event will be similar to Montreal NewTech’s previous online conference.

Event starts in








Igniting friendly conversations between partner groups associated with a diverse set of initiatives (like youth and social entrepreneuship, open innovation, diversity) and students about such initiatives and other topics like resources and involvement opportunities.

Creating an energizing yet comfortable virtual gathering for ideas to transpire by inspiring students to adopt an entrepreneurial mindset, and by encouraging learning through collaboration between students and partner groups.

Catalyzing the creation of meaningful individual connections within the network of student and startup communities by providing a platform for conversation and inspiration to happen and flourish.
