The selected startups will have access to a working space at 1871, a 140,000 square-foot pure innovation space as well as the potential opportunity to pilot their innovative technology with BMO Harris Bank.

“Innovation is crucial for any business to succeed in today's business environment," Alexandra Dousmanis-Curtis, Group Head, U.S. Retail and Business Banking, BMO Harris Bank said. "We're partnering with 1871 to present new enhancements to our industry with the opportunity to refine our capabilities for our current and prospective customers of tomorrow and beyond.”
