CEO, E-180

Christine is a social entrepreneur, CEO of E-180, which creates web and mobile matchmaking tools connecting like-minded people interested in learning from each other, one-on-one, in person. That’s what we call “brain dates”. By doing so, E-180 turns spaces, organisations, events and cities into peer-learning hubs.

Before founding E-180, Christine graduated from the Harvard Graduate School of Education as a Knox Fellow, focusing on informal learning, and worked was a Podcast producer for New York-based Learning Matters.

She was recognized by La Presse as one of “Québec’s rising star in entrepreneurship” in 2013, one of the 10 women who are shaping Québec in Clin d’Oeil in 2010. She is a contributing author to the book Knowmads Society and has shared her work with E-180 in conferences such as SxSW 2013/2014 and #140edu in New York. Under her leadership, E-180 was recognized as one of Montreal’s 10 most innovative companies and was featured in the innovation issue of the Fast Company in February 2013. She sometimes teaches social entrepreneurship for the Institut du Nouveau Monde and is currently training for a triathlon even though frankly, she can’t run for her life.
