In April a small group of leading business people was invited by the City of Montréal for a cocktail evening in the offices of BMO to meet Mr. Robert Bell, executive director and co-founder of the Intelligent Community Forum (ICF).  Mr. Bell was in town to judge the seven finalists for Intelligent Community of the Year, which Montréal had the privilege to be part of.

Soul.City was invited to the small gathering, and I got the chance to discuss with the judge about our city discovery app.

Great news:  On June 17th at a gala event in Columbus, Ohio, Montréal won the prize title!

Here at Soul.City we’re proud to be a small part of the success of our vibrant and entrepreneurial city in this competition!

Cheers!
