Technovation Challenge Workshop

Technovation Challenge participants working on their applications

The first-ever Technovation Challenge program in Montreal kicked off with a mobile application workshop at La Gare. Organizers Amina Gerba and Stéphanie Jecrois were inspired to launch a Montreal chapter of the program when they met Anar Simpson, Global Ambassador for the Technovation Challenge, in Silicon Valley while traveling in the U.S. on an International Visitor Leadership Program in 2013. Through a grant, the Consulate helped facilitate the participation in the workshop of Anar Simpson and Sarah Clatterbuck, Director of Web Development and User Experience at LinkedIn.
