The First Co-Working Space for female entrepreneurs in Canada | Feature. LORI.biz

It is never easy to start a business, ask any entrepreneur that you know. They will tell you that their journey might be a bit lonely and full of surprises.

I worked with a lot of startups around Montreal and if there is one thing that I learned, no matter how good your idea is, the success of the startup depends on those who run it.

That being said,it is important for the founders and entrepreneurs to be in the right environment. It’s important that they find an environment that empowers and motivates; an environment where people can come together to support each other and help each other overcome any obstacles that come their way.

There are five Montreal entrepreneurs that have come together to create the First Female Co-Working Space, it’s called Lori.biz.

LORI hub will offer work space by shared office space (desks) and personal offices (2-4 desks). The hub can accommodate 22 entrepreneurs. Air conditioning, heating, internet and furniture, activities and workshops are included. Source: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/lori-hub/#/

This is a really great initiative and it is by ideas like this that we are reassured that our amazing city is growing and going in the right direction.

Check out their intro video that will give great insight on what LORI.biz is all about.

Join me in helping them make their vision possible by contributing to their crowdfunding campaign.

As a personal note, I’m looking forward to see lori.biz grow, and empower all women enterprises around Montreal.

Montreal Scenic Bike Trails|Part 1

Nothing beats leaving the house on a beautiful sunny day for a bike ride. And not only is it beautiful…it’s also healthy.

Cycling’s advantages are countless. We are not only talking about the physical ones. When it comes to biking…the wind, the scenery, the interaction with people and the surroundings, helps clear your thoughts and relieve stress.

I’m a big fan of biking, alone and with friends. After all, it is my main form of transportation from early April till late November. And after biking around Montreal for the past 6 years, I was able to capture the best trails. In this blog post, I would like to start with one of my favorites.

This route will take you around the coolest parts of the island surrounding Montreal, while maintaining a great part of the trip in nature. It is also one of the most scenic trails in Montreal, you will be able to see the city skyline from different angles along the way, with the amazing Mont-Royal in the background.

 

  1. The trip starts in beautiful Park La Fountaine (where you can find easy parking if you are coming by car).Maps - Bike trail around montreal

  2. Then bike down hill to the village and take the bike trail over Jacques-Cartier bridge.bike montreal

  3. Go through the Parc Jean Drapeau, through small bike trails and along the riverside.Jacques Cartier Bridge

  4. Take the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.bike ride canada

  5. Take Victoria-Bridge and stop at Parc de la Cité-du-Havre (An amazing view of Old Montreal, and if you manage to reach the gazebo at the end of the park, you will have a panoramic view of the islands, city skyline, the bridge and the mountain)
