Young innovative businesses with high growth potential (startups) are key players in Québec's innovation ecosystem. They create wealth and innovation that benefits the entire population. Incubators and accelerators provide crucial support to these startups at all stages of their lives (creation, development and growth) and are nurseries of talent and innovation.

Launched on May 6, 2019, CED's $12 million Incubators and Accelerators Driven by Excellence (IADE) initiative will help Quebec's regional incubators and accelerators position themselves at a world-class level of excellence. It will thereby strengthen the potential of our startups by ensuring that they are supported by exceptional organizations which are well connected and able to create success stories that extend beyond our borders.
