My entrepreneurial dream (2 min 24 s)

It all starts here. Between two heartbeats. An idea is born.

At that moment, everything seems possible. It's the beginning of something greater than oneself.

For an idea to become a reality, you need the courage to listen to the heartbeat, even if you're the only one who can hear it.

Slowly, this idea grows into a vision. A dream. A business.

Then it takes shape as a small piece of card on which you write the only thing you own: your name.

And you win your first contract. Sales are high, but so is your stress level.

An employee who really makes a difference comes on board.

Then, to help out when cash flow is tight, you team up with a strategic partner who believes in you as much as you do in yourself.

You soon realize that you aren't the only one with lots of bright ideas. It's a game-changer.

Your partner, now a close advisor, helps you see further, transforms hurdles into springboards and your debts into growth capital.

Building something to last means knowing how to surround yourself with people who share your values.

So you learn how to trust.

You create bonds with people who include you in their network, help you benefit from their experience, and watch your dream soar even higher.

This dream is then translated into four languages on three continents.

The time comes when you need more than just advice, but a solid team working alongside you to build the future.

The road is long. But you're not alone on the journey.

Over the years, suppliers become friends.
Employees become managers.
And partners become allies.

Today, everything is in place to hand over the reins.

And when you look back, you realize how far you've come.

You've become part of something greater than oneself, something anchored here in Quebec.

You're no longer dreaming alone. Now, thousands of people can hear the same heartbeat.

And it's the heartbeat of a whole region.
