As already announced past December 2017, for the first time EBN has certified five members in Canada. IDE Trois-Rivières very proud of becoming full member and being part of the network of certified incubators with the EU|BIC label, organised on 1 February 2018 a press conference.
Francine Masson, EBN agent in Canada, with Mario de Tilly, General Director of IDE Trois-Rivières and Mrs Ginette Bellemare, Trois-Rivières Municipal Advisor
Javier Echarri, EBN CEO, addressed the audience a warm welcome to the network to IDE Trois-Rivière and the other four Canadian members that passed the certification process at the same time.
This enlargement to Canada, North America, is a reality thanks to the efforts and support of Francine Masson, and her strong believe to the EU|BIC model. Certified incubators are proven to be the ones providing the appropriate services to the startups and entrepreneurs to develop their innovative ideas. In a world were globalisation in key, this enlargement of EBN to Canada will serve to strengthen the links between the two sides of the ocean.
We are looking forward to further cooperate with our recently new accredited EU|BICs in Canada and hoping to host them soon in Europe, at the Annual EBN Congress taking place 6-8 June in Esch-sur-Alzette (Luxembourg).
