What are the QI_Connexion events?

During each QI_Connexion, ten startups are given the opportunity to present a business solution in a 3 minutes pitch to a predetermined client in a similiar fashion as Dragons' Den television show. Their pitch represent a concrete occasion to sign a contract with an actual client and develop a business strategy in a convivial event. The next edition of QI_Connexion will be held during Expo Entrepreneurs. For this edition only, 6 startups will have the chance to present their ideas to the biggest natural stones distributor in North America: Polycor.

Who is Polycor?

Founded in 1987 in Québec, Canada, Polycor Inc. has become the largest fully-integrated manufacturer and distributor of natural stone in North America today. Growth through acquisitions has positioned them as a leader and demonstrated their desire to keep the rich legacy of North American quarries alive.

The startups that will pitch their ideas are:

1. ArtBox

2. Synergiz

3. 4elements

4. Fazup America Technologies

5. Bubble Company

6. MassivArt


What is the issue?

Polycor Inc. is looking for new growth-hacking marketing tactics to ensure an innovative leadership position in a conservative industry. The company is looking for ground breaking, revolutionary and stimulating solutions to promote its natural stones or its manufacturing process (from extracting stone from a quarry to hand finishing by factory workers).
