The MT Lab partners

The MT Lab was founded by the University of Quebec in Montreal (UQAM) and its School of Management Sciences (ESG UQAM) and thanks to the support of Tourisme Montreal the project was able to see the light of day. The financial participation of the City of Montreal and the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Land Occupancy made it possible to develop the premises in the heart of the entertainment district.

The committee of major partners is made up of industry leaders who identify priority themes and who will support companies that have decided to validate their business model, get a first client or new clients in the field of tourism and culture. and entertainment.
