About Montreal Start Up

Montreal Start Up invests in companies looking to establish themselves in Montreal. Montreal Start Up provides seed level financing, as well as strategic and operational input, to companies in software-based businesses in the Internet, wireless and media spaces. <br /><br />Montreal Start Up focuses primarily on very early stage concepts and ideas. The ideal scenario per Montreal Start Up would be one in which a small team, which includes at least one developer, is looking for financial and strategic input to help flesh out an idea. This can generally be done in two to four months with between $25K and $50K. This small amount of cash, combined with a lot of time and support to help refine the idea and position the business for growth âۉÂÂœ make up what Montral Start Up likes to call FounderFuel.<br /><br />The goal of the FounderFuel investment program is to help entrepreneurs rapidly turn an idea into a beta service that might then become the basis for a successful business. Once the beta launches, Montreal Start Up looks to invest additional capital as the team continues development, gains users and prepares for a larger capital raise. At this stage, $200K to $500K is the typical investment amount.<br /><br />Although Montreal Start Up's preference is to be involved with companies from the early stages, they are interested in companies that might have "gained their FounderFuel elsewhere" but who would benefit from an affiliation with Montreal Start Up.
