Back only a few weeks from Paris, Soul.City arrived on the Montreal tech scene with a big splash at StartupFest! Held on the Esplanade du Vieux-Port from July 13-16, the event saw nearly 3,000 startup and investor attendees from every corner of the world.

Despite the extreme heat and torrential downpour, not to mention a train emergency stop near the venue, everyone present was in high spirits to attend high quality conferences and get the chance to pitch for various prizes offered to the best startup projects.

Highlights included a hilarious talk by Dave McClure, founder of 500 Startups with Phil Telio, founder of StartupFest, and a presentation by Ooshma Garg, inspiring Founder and CEO of Gobble.

Happy to report that Soul.City was shortlisted from 197 startups and got the chance to pitch a top-quality jury of potential investors on Friday morning.  Also a highlight of our 4 days on-site:  meeting Montréal mayor Denis Coderre who tweeted about our app. Priceless!

Stay tuned for more from Soul.City… we’re barely getting started!
