Bain Public will lead an expert product workshop in collaboration with Centech's acceleration program


(Montreal, Canada) – Paul Ortchanian, Founder, CEO, Head of Product, Data and Strategy of Bain Public, will be leading a workshop on September 16th, 2021 in collaboration with Centech: a world-class business incubator based in Montreal, Canada. This year, three cohorts began the acceleration program; we are grateful to contribute a third time around to this incredible program!

Centech is dedicated to high-tech (deeptech) companies with high growth potential. It is a non-profit organization fueled by ÉTS open to everyone and offers two support programs for startups: first is the acceleration program (12 weeks); then, the strongest potentials are selected to get into the propulsion program (24 months). Centech performs particularly well in the fields of medical technology, manufacturing, telecoms and microelectronics and other intelligent objects. In 2019, Centech was recognized by UBI Global as one of the most successful university incubators in the world.

The acceleration program is an entirely free program that allows founders to materialize their tech projects. The fall 2021 cohort has 3 main themes: Medtech, Industry 4.0 (in partnership with Investment Quebec), and Artificial Intelligence (Supply chain). They will go through a 12-week process that includes workshop sessions every 2-weeks hosted by industry experts and in-house entrepreneurs. Centech also offers the participants a personalized experience with one-on-one coaching, expert clinics with varied subjects, and conferences run by entrepreneurs & influential industry personalities. At the end of the acceleration program, the most promising ideas will be selected for the propulsion program. They will then have access to even more guidance for the next 2 years at most.

Paul’s unique experience brings together the necessity of great engineering and the beauty of product strategy. With this, he has identified an actionable process that enables him to offer concrete messages about product management and operations. Which led him to create a virtual workshop Leadership in Product, Connect & Explore Workshop for Teams that provides actionable strategies, tools, processes, and skills product leaders need to create innovations, adapt to market shifts, and anticipate what’s next.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, the workshop will be held in a hybrid format. During the in person workshop, Paul will lead a group of early stage startup founders through the process of revisiting and assembling their value proposition, establishing their product mission and strategies, and completing their product roadmap. Bain Public’s product analyst Abigail Ramirez Villarroel and UX/UI Designer Sirena Chan will guide the virtual workshops for these early stage startup founders.
