Join our first crowdfunding campaign!


80% of job offers are not published. Why? Because of the power of one's network.

JCCM is launching its first crowdfunding campaign in its history to better connect young people from underrepresented communities in business.

Because we are convinced of the strength of the network, JCCM wishes to raise $45,000 (subsequently doubled by the Mille et un Fund) thanks to the unfailing support of the business community.

The objective of this campaign is to make JCCM services (mentoring, training programs, and networking) accessible to 100 young people aged 18 to 40 who experience barriers or who are underrepresented in the business community.

Services Offered

  • 🗣 A tailor-made training in the art of networking;
  • 🤝 Free admission to JCCM's mentoring program;
  • 💡 Free admission to one of JCCM's three training programs;
  • 🌐 Access to all JCCM's services and its vast network;
  • 🙋 Dedicated support from JCCM's Team.

JCCM wishes to break down silos, create new networks and modernize the face of Montreal's business community by offering free access to its services and its vast network to underrepresented communities. The beneficiaries of the project will be able to significantly expand their network, and develop their personal and professional skills.

Services include:

  • 🗣 A two-hours tailor-made training in the art of networking;
  • 🤝 Free admission to JCCM's mentoring program: this one-year program allows participants to pair up with the business leader of their choice.
  • 💡 Free admission to one of JCCM's training programs in Entrepreneurship (RJE), Leadership (RJL) or Governance (RJA);
    • Réseau Jeunes Entrepreneur.e.s: 11 training sessions (2 hours each) dealing with all aspects of entrepreneurship (financial, legal, marketing, strategic, etc.) + a pitch competition;
    • Réseau Jeunes Leaders: 10 training sessions (2 to 3 hours each) articulated around the 3 main poles of leadership (Lead Yourself, Lead People, Lead Changes);
  • 🌐 Access to JCCM's vast network: The Junior Chamber of Commerce of Montreal is considered to be the largest young chamber in the world! 6@8 type networking activities will be free.
  • 🙋 Dedicated support from JCCM's Team.
