Soutenir la croissance de 139 PME innovantes

Québec City, February 28, 2018. – As part of its latest economic plan, the Government of Quebec has granted $4 million to the Corporation Inno-centre du Québec to help it provide more support to innovative businesses. In all, 139 SMEs with a collective turnover of $3 billion were chosen from 16 regions to benefit from Inno-centre’s consulting services in 2017–2018.

This was announced today by Stéphane Billette, Minister for Small and Medium Enterprises, Regulatory Streamlining and Regional Economic Development, and Sébastien Proulx, Minister of Education, Recreation and Sports and Minister responsible for the Capitale-Nationale region.

For 30 years, Inno-centre has been offering consulting services to innovative SMEs at various stages of their development. Its team of 80 consultants intervenes in every region from its offices in Québec City and Montréal.


By assisting Inno-centre, we’re able to provide real support to the growth of innovative SMEs all over Quebec and to promote entrepreneurship, which is one of the pillars of our government’s economic vision alongside innovative manufacturing and exports. The upcoming 2017–2022 social economy government action plan will help us provide better-targeted support for entrepreneurship in Quebec.

– Stéphane Billette, Minister for Small and Medium Enterprises, Regulatory Streamlining and Regional Economic Development

Inno-centre offers Quebec businesses personalized support from experienced business people to prepare them to face different issues related to growth. It is a key player in Quebec’s business ecosystem and contributes greatly to the success of innovative SMEs in the Capitale-Nationale region and all of Quebec.

– Sébastien Proulx, Minister of Education, Recreation and Sports and Minister responsible for the Capitale-Nationale region

Support for growing businesses is a priority for the Government of Quebec, as confirmed by this $4 million investment, as well as Investissement Québec’s Innovative Manufacturer Initiative and the coming launch of the government action plan in entrepreneurship.

– André Drolet, Member for Jean-Lesage and Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister for Small and Medium Enterprises, Regulatory Streamlining and Regional Economic Development

I am proud that twelve local businesses are benefiting from Inno-centre’s support as part of the Government of Quebec’s investment. Inno-centre plays a big role in the success of businesses in the region by providing recognized consulting services, and it contributes to the success of CAMP, our tech business incubator and accelerator.
