Off Events


Startupfest has become a major event in the Canadian technology ecosystem, and as a result, a range of organizations run their own startup-related events during the week, lending a “festival” air to Montreal.

We try to provide a list of such events as a convenience to attendees, but please note that any Startupfest “Off-Events” are not organized by Startupfest itself, and we aren’t responsible for their content or format.


Autodesk Presents: Kill The Silos – Bringing VR/AR/AI Together – a 360VRCommunity Initiative

6:00PM – 12:00AM

Montréal Talent is already International. From our Musicians and Actors, to Comedians and Directors, to our Programmers, Software and Game Makers, our Talent is renown.

Leaders of their Fields like AI’s Yoshua Bengio and VR’s Felix&Paul have solidified the perception of this Talent that we have in the eyes of the World. And yet, we fail to Monetize. Just as worse: we fail to talk to each other. We believe that the Future lies in Mixed Realities aided by AI, not in these segregated “silos”.

Unlike Major Cities, we also lack Corporations that can afford to the Services create by our Talents, which is why we must all come together to forge our City’s Future Economy, that will be highly dependent on our Talent. That’s our Human Capital.

With an Ambiance à la Montréalaise, you will experience Talks by Visionaries from each of Sector, as well as a Talk about how all these “Separate” Fields Can, Must and WILL come Together.
