Become inspired by the incredible community that the QEC has brought together & the stories behind our startup founders, ambitious entrepreneurs and successful companies.
“We’re electrical engineers building tools for other electrical engineers, but QEC made us realize that anyone could not only understand our product, but also understand the potential it has for changing the technologies we all use everyday.”
– Alroy Almeida, Co-founder of Voltera (2nd Place, 2014)
“A big part of the success that followed for TDot Performance was a result of competing in the QEC. The feedback we got helped us hone our business strategy, and the exposure to business leaders opened new doors for us.”
– Charith Perera, Co-Founder of TDot Performance (3rd Place, 2013)
“At the QEC in Toronto, there are so many people you could meet as potential mentors. We really got to know the judges and then work with them after the competition.”
– Derek Jouppi, Co-Founder of Suncayr (1st Place, 2016)
