Twelve award-winning talents representing the next generation of responsible, visionary, committed business leaders on the move

MONTREAL, Nov. 8 2023 /CNW/ – The 46th edition of the prestigious ARISTA Provincial Competition took place last night, Tuesday, November 7, 2023, at Espace Saint-Denis in Montreal. Presented by BMO Financial Group and chaired by Isabelle Grenier, President and CEO of KALEIDO CROISSANCE INC, the Gala ARISTA aims to reward and showcase promising up-and-coming Quebec business leaders who stand out for their leadership and innovation.

Always on the move

The ARISTA Competition is an opportunity for young Quebec professionals to showcase their innovative ideas. Each year, more than 500 applications are examined by jury members, who select the 30 finalists. The competition is a real opportunity for emerging talent, rewarding creative and avant-garde initiatives. The JCCM pays particular attention to candidates who demonstrate a commitment to social responsibility and who aspire to showcase their concepts.

Each year, the diverse projects cover a wide range of fields. For this 46th edition, the ARISTA Competition received projects related to health, learning to code for children, innovative marketing business solutions, a digital platform that raises awareness of the oppression suffered by Afro-descendant women, eco-responsible training equipment, an NPO that promotes the cultural diversity of contemporary circus, a solution to revolutionize the field of menstrual pain through scientific innovation, and a zero-waste company whose mission is to reduce food waste.

The JCCM would like to extend its warmest thanks to the volunteer teams who have made every effort to ensure the success of the 2023 edition of ARISTA.
