PME MTL, in collaboration with the Avenue Laurier West merchants’ association, launches the entrepreneurial contest Mon commerce sur Laurier Ouest.
Do you have a business project on Avenue Laurier West that aim to establish, diversify or transfer a business? If so, this contest is for you!
The contest offers $85,000 in grants to showcase businesses that will be setting up on Avenue Laurier West in 2019. It targets projects of diversification of an existing commercial offer or those of business transfer processes.
Grants between $10,000 and $25,000 will be awarded to selected entrepreneurs!
Entrepreneurs interested in starting a business on Avenue Laurier West have until May 31, 2019 to submit their entrepreneurial project on the PME MTL web site.
The Mon commerce sur Laurier Ouest entrepreneurial contest follows the extensive infrastructure works on Laurier Avenue West. It will allow the revitalization of the artery, that is to say the portion delimited by Saint-Laurent Boulevard and Côte-Sainte-Catherine Road. This contest favors the arrival of new businesses, the diversification of an existing commercial offer as well as the transfer of business (take over).
Moreover, the initiative encourages business projects proposing new concepts aimed at transforming the customer and shopping experiences. These projects will:
- Meet the needs of the neighbourhood, Montrealers and tourists
- Contribute to the attractive potential of the commercial artery.
AVENUE LAURIER WEST: A COMMERCIAL DIVERSITY!
With a distinctive French character, Avenue Laurier West is known for its gourmet restaurants, specialty clothing and home accessories shops.
Real shopping destination, the artery gathers nearly 200 shops on 1000 meters.
