The Launch of E-180: A Memorable Evening!
What is E-180?
E-180 connects you with like-minded people looking to share knowledge in person over a coffee, a lunch, a beer.
E-180 celebrated the launch of the French version of their matchmaking platform on Thursday, October 27th, 2011, at Café Matina in Montréal! The one hundred people who were there, along with our ten devoted volunteers, made the evening an event that the E-180 team won’t soon forget.
Seen and heard on social media networks:
“I was at the E-180 launch, and there were MANY devoted and inspiring people. I can easily imagine that it will be a high-quality platform.” – Youssef Shoufan

The invitees, and soon-to-be platform users, were those who had previously registered and managed to attract three other friends to do the same. Over 3000 invitations to register to the platform were sent out in the following weeks, increasing the member count to over 900. The French platform is still in private Beta mode as of June, however the fully public and accessible Beta version of the platform will be available in September.
The English Montreal platform is now slated for launch in September as well, so tell everyone you know to register! In the mean time, check out our Crazy Learning Project. This summer Montrealers will be challenging themselves, and creating a learning projects where they will go out to teach or learn. Their stories will be documented on this blog! Do you want to challenge yourself and learn something you’ve always wanted? Then you’ve got the right stuff! Apply!
