We Need Grannies for Startups

Montreal’s International Startup Festival is looking for a few good grandmothers.

The event will gather hundreds of the top technology entrepreneurs around the world for speeches, conferences and festive activities.

The festival is also a venue for small-business owners to make pitches to potential investors and be judged on the quality of their presentations.

However, Philippe Telio, one of the festival’s organizers said there are lots of opportunities to have fun even when being judged.
