Two companies receive awards at the OSEntreprendre 2017 Gala

SOVAR would like to congratulate two companies that have benefitted from its guidance for over more than two years, for the awards they received at the 2017 Défi OSEntreprendre Gala held on June 14, 2017, at the Palais Montcalm in Quebec City. The first is BLIQ Photonics, a company spun off research at Université Laval and at the CRIUSMQ (the research centre of the Quebec Mental Health Institute). BLIQ received the national first prize in the technological and technical innovation category as well as an honourable mention for ingenuity. The second company, Brilliant Matters Organic Electronics derived from Université Laval research, won the grand prize for the youth entrepreneurship challenge.

The OSEntreprendre program enables entrepreneurial initiatives to be discovered and recognized. Local (at Université Laval through Entrepreneuriat Laval), regional and national competitions are staged allowing some 40,000 participants to show their entrepreneurial spirit.
