InnoCité MTL, Montreal’s accelerator for smart cities, has merged with incubator Centech to combine their services and help more startups. The two organizations say the combination will put under one roof the best experts in smart cities development. InnoCité MTL is an initiative of the city of Montreal while Centech is a technology incubator created by École de Technologie Supérieure (ETS), one of Canada’s largest engineering schools. With the merger, InnoCité MTL will be added to Centech’s 10 ÉTS Open Innovation Cells as a smart city innovation cell. These innovation cells, measuring 56 m2 and located in Montreal’s Quartier de l’innovation (QI), allow collaboration among young companies, students, researchers and research chair holders for private-public sector partnerships.
