Sherbrooke a Source of Inspiration at the Reflection Forum on Entrepreneurship and Creativity

Sherbrooke stands out as one of the Québec communities most open to entrepreneurship – this was the message issued jointly by the Chief Scientist of Québec, the City of Sherbrooke, the Université de Sherbrooke, Bishop’s University, and the Chambre de commerce de Sherbrooke at the recent forum reflecting on entrepreneurship and creativity.

The culture of collaboration and the vitality of the community, in particular, were highlighted.

The goal of the forum, which gathered about a hundred stakeholders in research, economic development (including Sherbrooke Innopole), municipal affairs, and business, was to define avenues for action to advance research in entrepreneurship and to promote the development of the next generation of Québec entrepreneurs.

“The City of Sherbrooke and its partners have already taken great strides. Their culture of collaboration and partnership places them in an enviable situation in Québec, and their progress is promising,” commented Chief Scientist of Québec, Rémi Quirion.
