The entrepreneurial trailblazer will make a rare public appearance at C2 Montréal 2019 in the midst of his international tour for PY1
MONTREAL, Feb. 13, 2019 /CNW Telbec/ - Guy Laliberté will take the stage alongside three up-and-coming, young entrepreneurial talents to discuss creativity and entrepreneurship at the 8th edition of C2 Montréal (May 22-24). Guy Laliberté joins a spectacular list of speakers who have chosen C2 Montréal as a platform to share their ideas and upcoming projects, including iconic filmmaker Spike Lee, groundbreaking entrepreneur Dr. Martine Rothblatt and award-winning SAP CMO Alicia Tillman.
"It is an honour to see Guy Laliberté take the stage at our event this year. He has always been ahead of his time, and continues to be a creative visionary in everything he does. In keeping with C2 Montréal's theme of 'Tomorrow,' we're excited to see him and our other world-class speakers deliver on our promise to inspire 7,000 participants to take action for the future, today", says Richard St-Pierre, President of C2 Montréal.
"I'm a big believer that creativity is a natural resource. If we want to make it a renewable resource, it is essential to surround ourselves with the top talent, especially by allowing a younger generation of entrepreneurs to have their voices heard," says Guy Laliberté. "I've often expressed my ambition to encourage entrepreneurs and creators, and this is why I created Lune Rouge. I am very excited to be taking on the C2 Montréal stage to discuss with brilliant young people who are eager to share their knowledge and ideas for a better future."

Lune Rouge brings together skilled entrepreneurs from a wide range of backgrounds in order to capitalize on one of Quebec's most valuable resources — its unique creative talents.
