Mem­phré’s eye on 24 projects

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Vic­to­ria Vanier

Twenty-four busi­ness projects have been pre­sented to the CLD of Mem­phrem­a­gog and they are now be­ing an­a­lyzed to see which ones will move on to be pre­sented to the panel of ex­perts at the end of the month. “We took a new strat­egy for this edi­tion by of­fer­ing in­for­ma­tion ses­sions and that seemed to help the pro­mot­ers to pre­pare and present their projects bet­ter,” said Yves Lan­thier, the gen­eral di­rec­tor of the CLD.

The CLD is equally con­fi­dent that the promotional cam­paign sur­round­ing the Eye of Mem­phre will have long term and pos­i­tive ef­fects, no­tably the po­si­tion­ing of the CLD as the re­source to con­tact with a busi­ness project and for in­for­ma­tion about their ser­vices and those of their part­ners.

“Again this year, we are en­thu­si­as­tic about the re­sponse from busi­ness peo­ple,” added Mr. Lan­thier. “The Eye of Mem­phre of­fers an ideal plat­form for en­trepreneurs to present their projects. It in­cites peo­ple to act on their ideas and we be­lieve that it has led to the emer­gence of sev­eral projects that would not have be­gun so quickly with­out this mo­ti­va­tion.”

The panel of ex­perts is com­posed of per­son­nel from the CIBC, the Na­tional Bank, the CAE of Mem­phrem­a­gog, Des­jardins de l’Estrie’s busi­ness fi­nance cen­tre, In­vest­ment Que­bec, the min­istry of Fi­nance and the Econ­omy, the CLD of Mem­phrem­a­gog, as well as a rep­re­sen­ta­tive of FIER In­no­va­tion Durable, de­pend­ing on the dossier be­ing pre­sented.
