Many great inventions never reach consumers. Many talented entrepreneurs never get exposed to great innovations.
TandemLaunch is a unique company creation studio based in Montreal that bridges these gaps. Since 2010, we have matched dozens of talented entrepreneurs with outstanding inventions sourced from hundreds of universities to build deep technology companies aligned with industry needs. We offer intensive mentoring, education and hands-on operational support to the small number of entrepreneurs we choose to work with.
The result? Startups that consistently scale and delight customers.
Our Entrepreneur-in-Residence program offers aspiring and established entrepreneurs a proven path to build world-class deep technology companies in 12 to 18 months. We offer significant executive-level interaction, guidance and hands-on support to each entrepreneur who chooses to work with us.

To pursue my dream of establishing a high-tech startup, I moved from Europe to Montreal after my PhD defense to join TandemLaunch. Being an entrepreneur, especially a technical woman, is tough, but I cannot think of a better place than here to be one. A combination of true mentorship, business guidance and support while being surrounded by passionate and young entrepreneurs.
I learned first hand about TandemLaunch’s unique approach to building early stage start-ups in early 2016. In particular, I learned about its smart model of combining strong technical founders with battle hardened start-up CEOs, but was amazed by the TandemLaunch team’s critical ability at pre-seed stage to recruit amazing tech founders and help guide them to identify patented differentiated IP. I am now fortunate enough to be riding the roller coaster of my 3rd start-up, IRYStec Software, with two of the best founders from TandemLaunch.
TandemLaunch is certainly one of the greatest places to start for “first time founders”! Surrounded by many talented and driven entrepreneurs, and encouraged by some of the greatest minds, it challenges you excel and provides great support for your venture to succeed.
I used to jokingly tell founders to not be randomlaunchers, but be TandemLaunchers instead. Launching a deep tech company requires a lot of variables to come together, so why leave it to chance when you can launch your startup with one of the best company building studios in the world?
In Europe, I was working with the University and the more industry-focused European Space Agency. I wanted to find something similar: TandemLaunch is exactly that. They’re the best at connecting academia, research and industry.
