Kongossa Hosts Social Innovation Event in Montreal

This is a sponsored post highlighting great social innovation in action. If you have a story like this, pitch us at [email protected]!

“Kongossa on Social Innovation” (#KOSI) is an event created by Kongossa Technology to promote social innovation and the intersection between technology and social good.

Pierre Blanchet, the CEO of idénergie,  will be giving a talk about social innovation. He embodies it: he created a mobile hydro turbine that is easily portable and can be used to power homes even if they’re far off the grid. 

#KOSI will put the spotlight on music as a tool for social action, with a concert happening after the talk with Canadian artist Sarah MK, and DJ MAD. 

Free passes are available, though seats are limited. It’s happening this Thursday, June 19th, at the ECTO space.
