Paris, here we come!

October 3, 2016

October is a huge month for Uvolt. Not only are the first prototypes of an actual watch being produced, but we’re also leaving for the city of light next week.

That’s right; Uvolt was named amongst the TOP 50 startups worldwide in the energy sector. Which is why we’re flying to Paris, and we’re pretty excited about it!

We were chosen over thousands of startups to represent Canada at the Hello Tomorrow Challenge in Paris on October 13–14. The top 500 early-stage startups in the world will be there, and there will be a ton of prizes up for grabs- such as 15k euros to the top startup per sector and a grand prize of 100k euros to the top startup at the challenge. This also means we’ll be at the Hello Tomorrow Summit, an invitation-only event with the 2000 most influent people of the global startup ecosystem, combining journalists, investors and entrepreneurs in one event.

It’s an incredible occasion to demonstrate Canada and Quebec’s ability to invest in renewable energy sources and we’re proud to be at the center of it. We will proudly bear the flags of Montreal, Quebec and Canada on the world stage, in one of the most prestigious events in entrepreneurship in the world. It is an honour we were more than happy to accept.
