Since the early days, OSMO has been building grassroots community projects for entrepreneurs.


Notman House

In 2009, the first project of OSMO saw the renovation of a physical space and beacon for entrepreneurship – Notman House (initially constructed in 1845), which is now Montreal's Google For Startups technology hub.

In 2016, the OSMO Café was launched. Built under the footbridge that connects the Notman House to St Margaret's Hospice.
