Accessibility Program: Explore MTL connect

An opportunity for young entrepreneurs, professionals and students from developing countries

Printemps numérique is offering, for a second year in a row, the “Explore MTL connect” accessibility program, a program for young entrepreneurs, professionals and students from developing countries interested in consolidating their knowledge in digital transformation.

Explore MTL connect was created to encourage digital inclusion, an issue that Printemps numérique holds dear and whose impact can be significant in terms of economic development,” says Mehdi Benboubakeur, Executive Director of Printemps numérique. In 2020, more than 240 young people between the ages of 18 and 35 registered for the accessibility program. They came from : Algeria, Benin, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Congo, Gabon, Guinea, Haiti, Madagascar, Mali, Morocco, Niger, Senegal, Chad, Togo, and Tunisia.”

In 2021, Printemps numérique hopes to increase this presence by allowing 500 young professionals to participate free of charge in the many online activities that will take place during MTL connect, Montreal’s Digital Week. 

It will be an opportunity for them to learn about current digital issues, receive advice from experts from various sectors, meet many participants from around the world and develop new collaborations.

This year, a track “Explore MTL connect” will be offered to the participants of the accessibility program with a suggestion of conferences, panel discussions and workshops.

“Digital technology is an important catalyst for development, on a social and economic level. Through the accessibility program, we want to strengthen North-South exchanges and collaborations. This program will be a source of opportunities for young experts and entrepreneurs from different sectors who wish to develop links with Québec. This will facilitate the transfer of expertise on both sides and the development of new potential partnerships.”

Added Mehdi Benboubakeur.
