Promies Nominations 2017

What are the Promies?

Celebrating Montreal’s best and brightest young Jewish entrepreneurs, the Promies Awards recognize business acumen, talent, creativity and community spirit in Montreal’s business community. Enjoy valuable networking opportunities at our pre-show cocktail, followed by a gala evening among leaders at the St. James Theatre, hosted by Yidlife Crisis and recognizing Lifetime Achievement Award winners Aldo and David Bensadoun. And that’s not all: a portion of your ticket purchase goes directly towards supporting Combined Jewish Appeal’s 100th fundraising campaign!

The Centennial edition of the Jewish Chamber of Commerce Promies Awards will be a part of Exponential, a four day event for young adults featuring world-class speakers, networking opportunities, fabulous parties and more.
