HEC Montréal has signed a three-year agreement with OurCrowd, a leading equity crowdfunding platform. Created in 2013, in Jerusalem, the organization has branches in the United States, Canada, Australia and Singapore.
The agreement will allow the two new partners to collaborate in several areas, by transferring knowledge and sharing expertise, in particular through joint research projects, joint workshops and events, and support for startups.
This arrangement will combine the strengths of OurCrowd, with $440 million invested, 120 companies funded, 20,000 accredited investors and 112 countries represented, with those of HEC Montréal, to foster entrepreneurship and encourage the next generation of business leaders. The results are sure to benefit both parties and their communities.
