OSMO Innovation

Created in 2019 in response to demand from large corporations for an intelligent conduit to startups capable of addressing specific pain points.

OSMO is a non-profit established in 2009 by Montreal entrepreneurs to help develop a world class startup ecosystem in our city. In the decade since, Montreal has evolved to become one of the world’s most attractive cities for tech entrepreneurs and a global leader in the high-growth sectors of AI, gaming and robotics.

Since the early days, OSMO has been building grassroots community projects for entrepreneurs. OSMO Innovation joins the foundation’s long list of ambitious projects.
