In the coming months many entrepreneurs will need to look for innovative ways to revive their businesses. This is a time of exceptional challenges. Using local know-how to devise business solutions in response to the economic crisis is just one of the big ones. It is even harder to successfully harness your digital experience through conferences, workshops and other virtual activities based on empirical experience. This is an opportunity for major leaders and the business community in Québec and elsewhere to work on practical and innovative strategies for starting over.
Montréal, a world centre for cultural and creative businesses, is an ideal place to create synergies between the leaders and decision-makers of large, medium and small corporations around these key issues. There are three key insights that can inspire businesses to leverage this collective knowledge and create a sustainable economy through events like the digital, inclusive and interactive C2 Online gathering.

Live a collaborative experience rich in new business practices
This year’s C2 Online offers you a new way of coming together, learning, engaging and moving forward through hands-on workshops, collaborative experiences and networking. In a completely virtual way, a team of hosts will direct you to the relevant content and guide you to the videoconference rooms.
A series of problem-solving digital workshops will be useful. Led by experts, these hands-on sessions will challenge participants to roll up their sleeves and take part in simulations that address real business challenges. Via the new digital platform, these workshops will bring all participants together in a learning session with a specialist before they break out into smaller groups and then meet again to discuss the solutions.
Some content will also be broadcast live on their social networks for the first time.
3. Focus on the environment as a vector for sustainable solutions
Two flagship activities addressing key issues will inspire you to make a practical contribution to the fight against climate change and take action for sustainable mobility and the environment.
