Coopérathon : Electrifier is one of the 3 best environmental solutions!

During fall 2020, Alterum (formerly SG2B) participated in the Coopérathon, organized by Desjardins and more than 100 partner organizations across Canada.

"The Coopérathon was a 6-week journey. The first 4 weeks were to learn and power your startup project and build unique relationships with mentors and experts. The next 2 weeks were a competition where you pitched in front of the best startup ecosystem in Quebec."

We were finalists in two categories:

  • Hydro-Québec Challenge : "How can we harness our clean energy and human energy to make our society even more resilient?"

  • Most responsible solution towards the environment award


For the Alterum team, the Coopérathon was an excellent opportunity to refine our pitch and build relationships with Hydro-Québec and Desjardins. We hope to continue the discussion with them for the development of our project. 

Congratulations to all the participants and in particular to Nura Médical, the winners of the competition. A special mention to OffSetGo, winner of the Most Responsible Solution Toward Environment!

In closing, we would especially like to thank the mentors who took the time to accompany the entrepreneurs and support their success!
