Startupfest’s Guide to Montreal

Client : Regroupement des éco-quartiers


The “Parcours verts et actifs : J’ai ma ruelle à cœur” (“Green Circuits Project”) is an initiative of Je Fais MTL. The association of eco-neighbourhoods in official partnership with “Montréal physiquement active” wanted to create four pilot circuits focussed on existing green lanes to highlight, encourage and develop active movement in neighborhoods and among youth, physical activity , socialization, and cultural, artistic and historical knowledge.


Deployement of Sidekick Tourism, our native mobile solution for iOS and Android. The mobile app allows the user to navigate via circuits, in the first place,and secondly, to have access to thematic stops (history/culture, physical activity, arts, green and citizen initiatives). Each stop may offer a description of the area, a hyperlink and media content such as audio guides, pictures and videos. All circuits and stops can be easily shared on social media and downloaded for use offline (without a cellular network).

Strong Points

  • Launching of a native mobile app providing rich content with an immersive user experience
  • The client uses our Content Management System (CMS) to add to and edit the contents of the app
  • Highlights the lanes of Montréal from a public engagement perspective

From the start, the mobile application framework proposed by Sidekick pleased us. It responded perfectly to our needs.
