Le Cercle des Grands entrepreneurs du Québec
The Cercle des Grands entrepreneurs du Québec is a prestigious distinction awarded to exceptional entrepreneurs whose achievements, ideals and commitment have contributed to Québec’s entrepreneurial vitality and economic development.
In its inaugural annual event in 2018, the Cercle honours six great entrepreneurs. The honourees were selected by a jury comprised of entrepreneurs and members of business communities from various regions and industries. The selection was based on three main criteria: entrepreneurial aptitude and values, economic and social impact and achievements. This distinction will be awarded annually.
By paying tribute to the honoured entrepreneurs, the Cercle is recognizing their contribution to Québec’s society and the advancement of models of leadership, creativity, boldness, perseverance and ambition—all sources of inspiration for new generations of entrepreneurs.
