Centech, the ÉTS business incubator and accelerator, located on campus at 1000 rue St-Jacques, is extremely proud to be ranked among the 20 top performing university incubators in the world. The announcement was made during the World Incubation Summit 2019, which was held in Doha, Qatar, between November 4 and 7.

Richard Chénier, Director General of Centech, points out: “The success of Centech, a technology transfer vehicle and generator of significant economic value, is primarily attributable to the strength of its high-quality entrepreneurs, for whom Centech represents a guarantee of reliability, quality and success for their tech start-ups.”

According to UBI Global, the programs that rise to the top of the list are business incubators or accelerators that produce exceptional impact and performance compared to their international peers. These programs outshine their global competitors in terms of the value they bring to their innovation ecosystem and their new client companies, along with the appeal of the programs themselves.
