Supervised by Alain Hertz, Full Professor at the Department of Mathematics and Industrial Engineering of Polytechnique Montréal, 13 students participated in the Competitive Mathematical Game and finished atop the leaderboard. These games, organized by the French Federation of Mathematical Games (FFJM) and the Society of Mathematical Calculation SA (SCM), are to solve a social problem.

Pléiade Capital is the first initiative in venture capital in Quebec built by students for students. The multidisciplinary team is formed with students from Polytechnique Montréal, HEC Montréal (including Hélène-Sarah Bécotte-Boutin, co-supervised by Gilles Caporossi and Alain Hertz) and the Université de Montréal.

Je m’appelle Maurice Manori. Je suis inspecteur de police à la Sûreté du Québec à l’Institut de Police Scientifique de Montréal. Bien que j’habite au Québec, mes origines sont italiennes. Mes collègues m’appellent tout simplement Manori. Je sais cependant que, derrière mon dos, certains me surnomment « l’agrapheur ». N’allez surtout pas imaginer que j’ai pour habitude de brandir une agrafeuse… j’agrafe les suspects à l’aide de la théorie des graphes. Je me trouve actuellement dans un avion, en direction de Genève. Je me rends en Suisse pour participer au congrès COPS de la Police Scientifique. J’ai pour mission de convaincre mes collègues que les graphes pourraient leur être utiles dans leurs enquêtes.
