The Montreal Business Community Presents the TELUS Montreal Inc. of Tomorrow 
Award to Novothermic Technologies 
MONTREAL, Dec. 4, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Some 400 members of the Montreal 
business community gathered on November 27 at Bonsecours Market for the annual 
Mayor's Ball, the Rendez-Vous of Montreal Inc. 
During the event, the winner of the TELUS Montreal Inc. of Tomorrow Award was 
selected and the award was presented to Guillaume Lacroix of Novothermic 
Technologies and his team as the most remarkable company among all the 
Foundation laureates over the last 12 months. The other two candidates were 
Dîner en Blanc International and LobbyFriend. 
Following a brief presentation by each of the finalists, the winner selected 
by those in attendance was Novothermic Technologies, a company that has 
developed a smart water preheater that allows restaurants to significantly 
reduce their energy consumption and their environmental footprint. 
Madeleine Paquin, Honorary Chair of the event and President and CEO of 
Logistec Corporation, pointed out the importance of supporting 
entrepreneurship: "More than ever before, young entrepreneurs must be provided 
with their share of encouragement, because they are the ones who are building 
the Montreal of Tomorrow". 
As stated by Andrew Molson, Chairman of the Board of the Foundation: "It's 
very inspiring to witness the way the businesses we support grow and generate 
jobs and prosperity. It motivates us to do more and it is thanks to the 
support of the Montreal business community that we're able to do so". 
This annual fundraising event organized by the Foundation allowed to raise 
over $125,000, which will be invested in young and promising Montreal 
entrepreneurs through business start-up grants. 
Every year, following a rigorous selection process, the Foundation welcomes 
some thirty new businesses that are particularly remarkable through the 
excellence of their business plan, the potential they offer in terms of job 
creation, of outreach and the quality of their entrepreneurial team. 
Over the last 16 years, the Foundation has awarded $5.2million in grants to 
foster the start-up of 766 businesses in Montreal, which have, in turn, 
created over 2,275 jobs. The Foundation has indeed contributed to the creation 
of investments of over $43million in the city.
