Event description
Creative Collisions promotes collaboration, experimentation, cross-pollination, & serendipity between industry, researchers and startups.

About this Event

[Français ci-dessous]

Advanced Manufacturing Technologies and 5G are drastically changing the worldwide manufacturing industry. Is the manufacturing sector in Quebec keeping pace with the new developments? How could researchers and startups support the manufacturers’ transition to industry 4.0? Could the industry remain competitive by collaborating with researchers and startups in innovative projects? If so, how?

Creative Collisions builds upon the 10 years and more than 110 demonights of Montreal NewTech with a unique format aiming to inspire industry, researchers and entrepreneurs to come together and collaborate. It focuses on the potential value of collaboration in the intersection between two different industries, technologies and/ or fields. This intersection or combination is often where innovation sprouts. Our next edition will explore the possible innovations that may result in the intersection of Advanced Manufacturing Technologies and the 5G.

This Creative Collision is presented by MNT, Centech with the support of Ministère de l'économie et Innovation du Québec, and Coopérathon.


Les technologies de fabrication avancées et la 5G sont en train de changer radicalement l'industrie manufacturière mondiale. Le secteur manufacturier québécois suit-il le rythme des nouveaux développements ? Comment les chercheurs et les entreprises en démarrage pourraient-ils soutenir la transition des fabricants vers l'industrie 4.0 ? L'industrie pourrait-elle rester compétitive en collaborant avec des chercheurs et des entreprises en démarrage dans le cadre de projets novateurs ? Si oui, comment ?

Creative Collisions a pour ambition d'inspirer l'industrie, les chercheurs et les entrepreneurs afin qu'ils se rassemblent et collaborent. Il met l'accent sur la valeur émergeante lorsque deux industries, technologies et/ou domaines différents collaborent. C'est souvent au croisement de nouvelles combinaisons que l'innovation prend forme. Notre prochaine édition explorera les innovations possibles qui pourraient résulter de l'association de l'Advanced Manufacturing Technologies et la 5G.

Présenté par Montreal NewTech et Centech et supporté par Économie Québec et le Coopérathon.

// Meet Startups & Talent

Since 2008, the evenings both start and finish with networking time to meet co-founders for new startups projects: programmers, mobile & web entrepreneurs, as well as tech professionals, are part of the attendees. If you're looking for engineers, journalists or investors to take your startup to the next level, this is your chance!

// Industry Insights & reverse pitch

From 2014 and on, we try to bring key industry stake holders to present and engage with the other participants and audience around specific insights, challenges and opportunities related to their organizations or industry and offer potential collaborations paths with them

// Innovative Research

Since 2017, at each demo night, we have been aiming to bring a researcher or a project that has a deep research component to it to inspire startups and aspiring entrepreneurs to strive for meaningful innovations.

// Meet your Community

Since the beginning of our events series, we usually take few minutes at the end for community announcements; it's all what we are about at the end of the day! While we have amazing communities helping entrepreneurs or exploring new technologies and innovations, many current or aspiring Montreal entrepreneurs are still unaware of all the awesome groups that exist. Especially this time being a kick off for the new seasons with usually a fairly high number of new beautiful faces in our community. So let's change that! If you know or are a community who wanna increase awareness of what you're up to, reach out to us, and we will give you the time to shine! :)
