ACCESS TO RESOURCES OFFERED BY ESPACE CDPQ

Service offer to tenants

The FinTech Station offers a vast range of services to support start-ups and financial services sector stakeholders in their pursuit of FinTech innovation. 

The FinTech Station intends to enter into agreements with technology firms and financial data vendors to offer start-up tenants technological services free of charge (access to development platforms, cloud hosting facilities, service software, etc.) as well as data that they can use to develop their products and services.

The FinTech Data Lab, led by the Montréal FinTech Station, is an initiative that aims to support collaborative research and development projects between FinTech firms and financial institutions. Both parts will benefit from a secured data sharing framework to trial and scale new business-oriented innovations in order to:

  • Create value by solving real business issues for financial institutions, their partners and regulators;
  • Contribute to strengthen the vitality of Québec's financial ecosystem by fostering intellectual property that can be exported;
  • Attract talent to Quebec with a unique offer of access to real financial data.

The FinTech Station plans to set up a monitoring service for global financial innovation. This service will give Station tenants access to news relevant to their activity sector,and help them to keep informed about new FinTech trends.

The FinTech Station intends to enter into agreements with law firms to offer legal services free of charge to start-up tenants in areas such as compliance, contracts, commercial real estate, intellectual property, insurance, labour law, and more.

The FinTech Station intends to enter into agreements with accounting firms to provide accounting services such as bookkeeping, payroll services, financial statements, taxes, budget, and financial management.

The FinTech Station team has a vast network of stakeholders to connect start-up tenants with financial institutions, coaches, angel investors, professional service providers, and technology experts. These experts can advise start-ups to help them grow. The FinTech Station facilitates access to the ecosystem’s resources and connects companies with other FinTech hubs and ecosystems around the world.

Training and professional development activities are organized on a regular basis; these activities give participants an opportunity hear and interact with key industry players. The FinTech Station also facilitates access to training, mentoring, coaching, and certification programs and can refer start-ups to acceleration or recruitment programs.

Many networking events are organized on a regular basis at the FinTech Station to facilitate interactions and networking. These include happy hours, hackathons, pitch competitions, and the Canada FinTech Forum—the FinTech Station is a catalyst for finance and technology events in Montréal.

Using dedicated communication tools, the team fulfils its mandate to lead the FinTech community and maximize its visibility. Start-up tenants enjoy visibility on the website, in social media, in the newsletter, on digital platforms, and at the physical location of the FinTech Station at 4 Place Ville-Marie.

  • Financial technology company in start‐up or growth stage (from seed funding to series B financing phase)
  • Company with at least one client or with sufficient capital for development potential
  • Company created less than seven years ago
  • Company with under $5 million per annum in revenue
  • Company with fewer than 50 employees

The criteria listed above are non‐exhaustive. A start‐up must meet at least one of the eligibility criteria.

The FinTech Station manager, with the support of the advisory committee, is responsible for selecting the companies to be admitted as tenants. The manager may also consult Finance Montréal’s stakeholders if he deems it necessary.

Companies will undergo a qualitative analysis to determine their eligibility and relevance in the Montréal FinTech Station. We will examine the product offered by the start‐up, its growth potential, and its complementarity with the other companies.

The manager will conduct due diligence when verifying the chosen start‐ups with regard to the directors, senior managers, and controlling shareholders of each eligible start‐up who applies to become a tenant at the FinTech Station. The regulators will conduct a credit report and a criminal record check, as well as a review of previous convictions for each party.

The FinTech Station manager reserves the right to accept or refuse a start‐up that has passed the due diligence stage. At the end of each rental period, the FinTech Station manager will confirm whether the tenant wishes, and is still eligible to stay at the Station as a tenant. The maximum lease term for a start‐up is three years, with the possibility of renewal.
