Montreal tech accelerator FounderFuel is unveiling its newest batch of seven startups.
From food robotics to bird deterrence, this year’s companies are using technology to transform a wide range of industries. The 13-week program will put cofounders through workshops, mentorship, pitch prep and maybe even a pivot or two.
FounderFuel culminates on Tuesday, July 10 with what it calls “Canada’s largest Demo Day,” to be held at New City Gas, one of the city’s traditional night-life heavy-hitters.
