May 05, 2017 | By francecanadaculture Toronto

Organized by the CFC Media Lab and the Cultural Service of the Embassy of France in Canada, in partnership with la Gaîté lyrique, Enterprising Culture is an international meeting that provides opportunities for unique discussions and exchanges between Canadian and French stakeholders and start-ups from the worlds of culture, creative, and media industries. A cross-sector event involving debates, keynotes and pitching sessions, the Forum, now in its second edition, will be held in both Toronto and Vancouver. In order to encourage innovation, Enterprising Culture will invite 5 French start-ups and 5 Canadian start-ups to pitch their project. Two of them (one French, the other Canadian) will be awarded the Cultural Start-up Award and have the opportunity to take part in an intensive incubating week in Toronto for the French start-up and in Paris for the Canadian start-up.
