EWeek 2017 Event
Even musicians are entrepreneurs!
URBAN SCIENCE BRASS BAND re-invents hip-hop classics with the intensity and fire of a guerilla street performance. Imagine a New Orleans-style brass band – trumpets, saxophones, trombones, sousaphones, tubas – with a repertoire spanning Dr. Dre through Kendrick Lamar – complete with MCs on megaphones and marching band drummers. They are the hosts of the first ever Montreal Hip-Hop Parade, bringing together this core concept with b-boys & b-girls, and a parade convoy representing the totality of the Montreal hip-hop scene, from MCs and musical groups to beatmakers, producers, and DJs, to graffiti crews to radio shows and many more.
Hosted by: Madeleine Bazerghi

EWeek Discussion Series: THE POWER OF A NETWORK
Six degrees of separation is the idea that all living things and everything else in the world are six or fewer steps away from each other. Meaning that if you wished to speak to Jay Z for example, you could go through a chain of six people in order to get a personal introduction.
We are all well aware that since 1993 the facility in connecting to others has increased tremendously. We connect through food, music, events, business and social media. As an entrepreneur, your network is one of the most important groups to leverage when starting a business.
Meet these energetic entrepreneurs who understand the value of a network for the success of a business or social enterprise.
