We are very proud of this third edition of the Anges Québec Awards”, explains Michel Brûlé, President of the board of directors.

He is a Canadian leader in the field of direct sales and is a recognized expert in intellectual property and technology law.
Founded in Montréal in 2014, Sportlogiq developed a unique image processing technology enabling it to generate real-time advanced statistics for the hockey industry. Most notably, the National Hockey League Teams (NHL) and broadcasters use its products.

Quotes from the Winners
“I always wanted to help people flourish and that’s why I became involved with Anges Québec right from the beginning. We are investors, but also mentors who can help the next generation to avoid making the same mistakes we made. I am particularly proud to have been able to contribute to the growth of entrepreneurs by opening doors for them, while allowing them to remain major and active owners in their companies. Aside from the honour I receive today, this is my greatest reward.”
