“ The universities provide us with the resources we need to maintain our growth. As well, we can attract international talent to Montréal. The arrival of new players to the city is creating a domino effect: the more technology businesses there are in Montréal, the larger the pool of talent. That, in turn, attracts even more people who contribute to the available expertise. ”
