Facilitate the emergence of the first collaborative economy cluster, a coherent, cohesive and efficient ecosystem to stimulate innovation and local economic activity, and to meet our major societal challenges.
$8M to create the world's first collaborative economy cluster in Verdun, Montreal
Initiative started by Sensorica in colaboration with David Lametti, at that time MP from Verdun and Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, currently Minister of Justice.
David follows Sensorica since 2013. In January 2016, after the federal election, he invited Sensorica members to discuss about an initiative to boost the economy in his riding. The general idea was to create a network of open innovation spaces, built along the OVN Sensorica model, where the local population can meet with entrepreneurs and local companies to generate new economic initiatives.
David asked Tibi to gather a group of experts from our local network to facilitate the implementation of this concept.
OuiShare MTL was also included in this project. Alex Bigot, co-founder of OuiShare MTL and OuiShare global connector was invited by sensoricans at a meeting on the Parliament Hill in Ottawa, where David reaffirmed his interest for this project. In 2019 OuiShare MTL lost interest in the project.
During the Montreal edition of the World Social Forum we met with other local players and discussed the project, in order to complete the initiation and facilitation team.
Those who contribute most to the project gain access to:
Financial rewards: gain first access to paid roles once the project is funded.
Recognition and visibility: take roles of responsibility and exposure to partners.
Decision making: get included to decision making processes about this project.
