Startups in Montreal – Most Connected Tech Companies
Montreal: artificial intelligence and design
The Montreal technology scene is known for both innovative design and advanced artificial intelligence. AI leaders like Automat and Element.ai mingle with innovative design and fashion retail leaders like Frank And Oak and Luxury Retreats. Montreal innovators start with a global perspective as they come from city that seems to effortlessly bridge languages, cultures, and continents.
Montreal (and for the sake of this list we included a few early stage companies in nearby Quebec City) has a rich history, vibrant arts scene, and award-winning food scene, making it more than just an epicenter of innovation. While it’s not the largest center in North America for startups, it had tremendous potential, and is one to be watched carefully.
Startups and technology companies
Innovation in any field, but especially in technology, depends on ideas. Research in the fields of relationship intelligence and network science has shown repeatedly, that the best, most innovative ideas come from outside of a local network as someone is able to make connections between fields and create a new way of tackling a challenge.
Technology companies need to continually invent, and reinvent, in order to keep on the forefront of their fields. As industries shift and change, technology leaders need to be on the forefront of the deals and alliances that are being made.
Each of these criteria favour the technology companies that are ‘most connected’. Those that have invested in building and maintaining the relationships they will need with other innovation leaders and alliance partners will be best positioned to win as the market moves forward.
Which brings us to today’s Most Connected Technology Companies in Montreal list.
What is Most Connected?
Most Connected is a resource that showcases the most networked companies in a region. According to Harvard Business Review, in today’s business environment, relationships are the key factor in what makes a successful brand. And now, relationship intelligence solutions can identify which companies have the strongest sets of relationships. Nudge.ai is showcasing the companies that are most set up for success based on the strong networks of their employees.
Companies are ranked on a number of factors including how many relationships their employees have, how strong those relationships are, and how many companies those relationships stretch across. For more detail on how Nudge measures and analyzes relationships, see here.
