Who We Are
Since 1845, Notman House has been a symbol for innovation and the bastion for entrepreneurship in Montréal. Throughout the years, it has retained its neutrality and continues to attract all stakeholders in the community. Notman House sets the tone for the types of discussions, interactions, and connections that are necessary to build successful startups – and to nurture a healthy, vibrant ecosystem.
We created the SOMO Lounge for like-minded startup founders in like-minded stages of life who believe in positive change through entrepreneurship. Our vision is that this space will become a second home and resting place for those who dare to think differently and boldly.
Given that human relations are at the core of everything we do and given our neutrality, we are and will always be by and for the community. We believe that you deserve your space in Notman House.
Supporting Founders and Grassroots Entrepreneurship
Founders need a place that is private and welcoming where they can recharge with other founders. Our space features a comfortable lounge environment that is conducive to meaningful connections with other members and guests they may invite. Whether your goal is to rest and recharge after a long day or enjoy a drink with an out-of-town business partner, we have your back.
