A List Of Montreal's Hottest Startup CEO's

Being an entrepreneur is not a job, it's a lifestyle.

So as you know, or will find out soon enough: I love making lists about people. Simply because Montreal is filled with successful and driven men and women, and we SHOULD praise them. We should make more of them, and inspire others to set goals and achieve them.

Opening a company and risking EVERYTHING is one of the most honourable things someone can do. Being an entrepreneur is not a job, it's a lifestyle. I've gathered some of the top men in the biz, who have all taken a risk because they've had a desire to do more.

Give a hand of applause to...

Montreal HOTTEST Startup C-E-O's

(That's Chief Executive Officer, for those who didn't graduate high school).
