Végévora Wins Druide’s Grand Prize for Entrepreneurship
At the 21st Défi OSEntreprendre gala for the Montreal region on April 30th, Végévora won Druide’s Grand Prize for Entrepreneurship, earning $3000 and several services. The winners in each official category also received a copy of Druide’s renowned software, Antidote.
Druide informatique has been affiliated with the Défi OSEntreprendre, formerly known as Concours québécois en entrepreneuriat, for the last eight years. Druide’s principal contribution has been the introduction of the Grand Prize for Entrepreneurship, awarded to the best winning project in the entrepreneurship class.
This year, the class received 250 submissions, seven of which won in official categories. Out of these seven winners, the jury for Druide’s Grand Prize for Entrepreneurship selected Végévora. They were won over by the commitment of Végévora’s founders, Marie-Hélène Le Rossignol and Thiago Linares, two experienced professionals who left their successful careers to pursue their innovative project.
Firm in their belief that you shouldn't have to choose between flavour and health, Végévora creates tasty and groundbreaking legume-based products. Its delicious Lubia, the first hummus-style chocolate spread available in Canada, is a responsible alternative to traditional hazelnut spreads and contains half the calories, a quarter of the sugar and zero palm oil or dairy. To top it all off, Lubia also has the irresistible taste of cake mix.
Those attending the Druide Classic on June 4th will have the chance to meet the founders of Végévora and hear their story. They will also get the chance to taste Lubia, which is already on sale at more than thirty locations, listed on vegevora.com.

The company is also the creator of WebElixir, a quality assurance service for websites.
