We met Yvan and Romain shortly after MIMs’ incorporation in 2016. Followed by a training that allowed us to improve our business model and our value proposition. Their assistance allowed us to establish connections with the organizers of the Quebecois and Canadian Trade Missions, making us known nationally and internationally and initiating our exports.
